Happy 100th!!!

onehundredWe celebrated my Grandmother’s 100th birthday in Seattle last week. As part of a toast, my dad shared some facts about the year of her birth, 1908. Here are just a few.

  • Other births that year include Simone de Beauvoir, Bette Davis, and Milton Berle.
  • William Howard Taft defeated William Jennings Bryan for the Presidency
  • Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid were killed in Bolivia
  • Austria and Finland granted women the right to vote.
  • Maytag started building washing machines. Hoover took on vacuums.
  • Popular song – Take Me Out to the Ball Game
  • And of course… the Chicago Cubs defeated the Tigers in the World Series.

What a century. What a woman. Happy Birthday!
