Donald Duck is a Gran'Pa

Yes, Donald Duck is really old. And boy, I am old.

When I was a kid, I used to watch him on black and white TV for hours. Aside from Bugs Bunny, the duck with his unintelligible gibberish and grouchy character is my favorite cartoon character.

He was your next door anti- hero; the quintessential loser but you've got to give it to him for he was always a fighter and you will not find the word "quit" in his limited vocabulary.

So, who cares if the grumpy old duck is 75 today?

He will always be the young, hot-tempered but unflappable duck to me.

Everybody in the house, say quack!
