Emanuel Fritz.

Notice that he's very on-trend with his plaid shirt and sweet shades. And the cane. Awesome.

Today is my Opa's 99th birthday. When he was born in 1910, the Titanic hadn't yet sunk. Women in America were still a decade away from being able to vote.

Having a grandfather who is the age of most people's great-grandfathers is definitely unique. However, I remember him still lifting me high in the air even when he was 80. He's smart and stubborn and even though his memory has faded to the point where he can't remember my name, he always makes me smile when he calls me his Vögelein.

Happy birthday, Opa.
