99 Years...

My grandmother turned 99 years old yesterday!
99, I say! That is ooooold. I can't imagine being around for that long. She was born in 1912!
I should cut her a little slack when she doesn't understand how the internet works or she can't remember what month it is (half the time, I can't do those things either!) When she was born, cars were still a new thing. TVs weren't around yet. I can only wonder what crazy inventions will exist when I'm 99...but I bet it will look something like this:
This is 99-year-old me, flying around space with my jetpack and hovershoes. This is totally what life is going to be like in 2081. Just you wait! And I like that I drew myself with a cane even though it seems a little unnecessary in space. (You never know when it'll come in handy!) 

I look forward to the day I get my first jetpack. See you in 70 years.

  1. It’s easy to forget now, but the Wings lost 421 man-games to injury last season. Stephen Weiss missed 56. Darren Helm missed 40. Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg each missed 37. Johan Franzen missed 28. Jonas Gustavsson missed 22. Danny DeKeyser missed 17. Daniel Alfredsson missed 14. Jimmy Howard missed 13. Justin Abdelkader missed 12. The list goes on.Only 27 times did the Wings have both Datsyuk and Zetterberg in the lineup. In the second half of the season, the Wings played largely without two of the best two-way players in new nike nfl jerseys hockey. Datsyuk played 10 games after Jan. 1. Zetterberg played zero games after Feb. 8.At the general managers meeting last month, Columbus Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen tried to put his own injury epidemic in perspective in terms of man-games lost. “One of my colleagues upstairs told me that if you have 400 or 300-and-something, you cheap sale jerseys have no chance of making the playoffs,” he said.Yet wholesale jerseys shop the NFL Jerseys Store Wings made it last season, anyway. The real surprise was that team, not this one. The Wings relied on kids and NFL Jerseys call-ups, particularly Gustav Nyquist, who started the season in the minors because of a logjam and ended up leading the team jerseys store in goals with 28. He scored 23 in 28 games from Jan. 20 to April 2. The Wings also spackled a hole by trading for veteran center David Legwand at the deadline because they didn’t have enough healthy bodies down the middle.
