Happy “39th” birthday Grama Joyce!

February 28, 2013 - Terri Castelaz
Today my grandmother, Joyce Best celebrates her "39th" birthday, which she has done for the past 14 years.

After I called to wish her a happy birthday this morning I asked her how old she was. Thinking maybe she would actually divulge her age to me. No such luck. Her response was she has lied about her age for so long she doesn’t even know. She again claimed “39 and holding.”

I can remember when I was young she use to say “29 and holding” to anyone who would ask her. After I turned 29, she decided she should move it up to 39 anyway.

But I have since passed 39 — only by a couple years — but she refuses to move it up to 49. “Oh 39 sounds so much better,” she laughs.

Well whatever her age is she is still is great health. Heck her body is probably in better shape than mine.

At her age she can fib about her age all she wants. I only hope to make it to her age and more importantly do as good as does.

Grama you are one of the most amazing persons I know. Here is to another 10 years of celebrating your “39 and holding” birthday.
