For those in the know, my mother’s mother has just officially turned 100!

This woman is one of the most impressive and interesting people I know.

A master-knitter amongst far too many more things to enumerate, she’s traveled quite the path thus far. Everyone on the family has at least several things she’s knitted and all those who visit her know she continues to keep a sharp mind!

Suffice to say a little blog post can’t possibly do this woman justice!

My aunt Connie, Grandma’s most recent child (heh), sent out a cool list of things that happened in 1911, the year Grandma Smith was born, I thought I’d post them here!

Cheers to our sage cat, Mr. Jasper

Jasper, our epically sage cat left us March 24th, 2010.

He sported a remarkable disposition unlike that of any other cat I’ve known. He expressed a vast range of positive emotions (with the occasional impressive act of disapproval). Jasper’s one of a kind character sets the bar for kitties everywhere and earned him an assortment of loving nick-names such as “Puppy Cat”. His grace is unrivaled and we will unquestionably miss him.

I am however delighted to have known him and thankful for the bizarre fortunes he enjoyed. This king of cats will remain comfortable and relaxed in the most treasured corners of our hearts.

Rest Peacefully Jasper.
