Celebrating 100 years

I have the privilege this Saturday, 17th May to share in the celebrations of my husbands 'Poppa's  (grandfather) 100th birthday.  Imagine what he has witnessed in his lifetime.  Poppa, has outlived two of his three wives.  Has three kids (daughter and two sons) from what I know eight grandkids not sure how many great grandkids but I am sure I will find out later today.

Poppa and 1st wife, my husband's grandmother.

Poppa with his daughter on her wedding day.  My husband's Mum.

This is a photo of the wedding to his second wife....affectionally referred to as 'my Mary'.

Wedding day to Bunnie, Poppa's third wife who is still with him today.
