Poppy turned 70 today. We can’t believe it, as he looks and acts not a day over 50! We had a great time celebrating tonight at their house. Poppy insisted on cooking his famous fried chicken (it was EXCELLENT) and we all had a great time celebrating him!

They’re growing up so fast!
Gary, Tamar and Jordan joined us via FaceTime for presents/cake!
Making a big wish!
We were able to get a very special gift together for Poppy’s birthday this year. All of the VIPs in his life were able to call in and record a special message to him. Over 50 people called and left messages! We know Poppy is going to have a great time listening to them in the coming days!
We wrote a poem:
We can’t believe you’re the big 7-0 / Where did all of this time go?
A great deal of time was spent drinking fine wine / Or eating at Morton’s, your favorite place to dine
Time was spent securing life insurance for each of us / Each Hannukah we look forward to this tradition, an absolute must!
With 10 different phone numbers, its amazing we’re able to keep in touch / Really? These days, anything more than 1 number is a bit much
When we see the color purple, we know you’re not far away / We predict over the next 30 years, your sweater vests are here to stay?
You have your hands full with 4 grandkids, soon to be five thanks to us / It may be time to trade in your car and purchase a yellow bus
We can always count on you to have the latest and greatest technology / What will you bring home from China next? We’ll have to wait and see!
We haven’t had to buy soap, towels or lotion for years / We have Hu-Friedy to thank for that…make sure to stock up before you switch gears
On a more serious note, you’re the most generous guy we know / Being able to return the favor one day is our ultimate goal
So happy 70th, we’re so glad we are with you to share / We’re looking forward to celebrating many more healthy years
