beautiful picture of your aunt, you can tell you are a good man and a good family man, want you to know I enjoy all your post, you are a great musician…..gene
Nothing is happier than a clam in the sand. I love RI.
Of course she does! She is as elegant as a queen and as beautiful as any Hollywood glamour girl. You young people don’t seem to realize that age does not diminish beauty, but enhances it. Youth does not determine beauty, it merely demonstrates how much more experience you all need to attain true beauty. Happy Birthday Miss Ida and may you have dozens more.

She is beautiful! Good to see you not “hammered” ! (not really, you just got this thing going on with your eyes) Watchin’ som reggae, doc about Bob Marley, Netflix
My great aunt turned 100 in 2000 and since has gone to be with the Lord. She had amazing stories to tell as she was a school teacher in a one room school and drove a Model A into the 80’s.
Get a recorder and video your Aunt when she tells you the stories of her growing up. This is the real American history, and you will be glad you did it. Something you can share with your children and grand children.
Cherish your Great Aunt. Get a video recorder and record your Aunt’s stories of her growing up. This is the real American History as told by someone that lived it. You will be glad you did and it will be something important to share with your kids and grandkids.. An everlasting tribute to your Aunt.
She looks fabulous. Happy Birthday best wishes and many more. Emil

Way cool Claude and God bless her!!!
Congratulations on her !00th! That is Great! I know the excitement, my Uncle just turned 99, down here in Pa.
Yep your aunt sure does’nt look 100 over here in Sydney (Australia) there was a 100th about a month ago and he dragged every body to the cafe near my wife Info Centre to watch the planes at the RAAF base.
One hundred is a very special birthday. Can you imagine all the changes that one has experienced since their birth? They would be like a living encyclopedia. Two very good friends of mine turned 100 years old a couple of weeks ago and a big celebration was held at the nursing home, where they share a room. Another party was held for them at a famous restaurant, here, in town, but unfortnately, my husband and I were travelling and couldn’t attend the festivities.Congratulations to both of you!
congratulation to your aunt ‘ hope she’s had a great party.
It is a blessing for you to enjoy her company. She is a treasure of wisdom, intelligence, and of course, history.
awesome,,,,,happy birthday to your great aunt Ida…… Thanks for posting pics
Very Beautiful Picture!!! Happy Birthday and many more to come!
That’s remarkable, hope you can do the same. Send me an email on your 100th,God willing. Stay cool, Greg
Happy birthday Ida
Your aunt looks great. Glad to hear you had a great time.
Happy birthday to your great aunt, Claude! That is fantastic!!
congratulations with your aunt’s 100th birthday. And i hope still many years to come. I also hope my English is good enough to say what I mean. ‘Cause i’m from the Netherlands.
groetjes (greetings) Marcel Suppers
congratulations with your aunty. You look like her. I mean you’ve got the same nose. Ha haha
I hope she still got a few years to come.
and thank you for all the advise you give me to play some licks on my guitar.
Congratulations on your Great Aunt’s Birthday, Ida.
I have a 1981Yamaha Six Steel String Acoustic Guitar, I bought it brand new and it is still in great condition. I used to play this guitar everyday in 1981. I ended up putting on the acrylic finger nails and could no longer play guitar. I decided to take off the nails and learn to play again. I lost allot of my guitar playing skills. What do you recommend me to do?
Try experimenting with open tunings, just to get the feel of the strings under your fingers again, the feel of the string positions in relation to other strings, and maybe the feel of a pick.. Producing nice sounds without so much effort to hold chords accurately, will make it easier to carry on regaining dexterity. But that’s mainly if you improvise, and not really care to begin with, if you reproduce what someone else has done. The main thing is, to enjoy discovery, and rediscovery.
John is absolutely correct. Just play and enjoy yourself. You would probably cover some ‘old ground’, but of course, that’s the joy of it all, isn’t it?
The easiest way to get back into playing without having your fingers killing you is to play for five minutes several times throughout the day. The breaks in between will give your fingers a chance to start to rebuild your callouses back up and it will give the muscles in your hands and fingers a chance to regain the strength they need to play again. Just leave your ax out on a guitar stand so you can grab it for five minutes as you go by. You’ll be surprised how fast this works and you ‘ll be able to increase your practice times very soon. Good luck!
Congrats to the Lady!!
Here’s to Red Wine, Pain Meds & Dancing!
Hey Claude, your aunt looks great for being 100yrs. old. I congradulate her on taking care of herself, she looks like she is ready to tackle another yr. Its nice to see happiness lik that.
Happy Birthday to your great Aunt she is amazing looking.Everytime I see a senior citizen like your aunt I could sit and listen all day to them and their history they have
. They,re fasinating with the amount of knowledge they store up after all those years but today I think the young don,t take the time to listen. Have a safe trip and thanks for sharing.She looks great. RMBsr..
Your great aunt Ida looks fantastic! Happy Birthday & many more!!
Happy birthday to aunt Ida wish you many more she looks great! have a great day! Thanks for everything
Man,you just blew my mind….I noticed clamjammers had RI on the truck…so I googled it..Galilee,RI. I grew up in CT, used to spent ALOT of time in Galilee, and Point Judith. The boat to Block Island leaves from Galilee..As a kid in the 60″s, we’d buy a bag of fresh calm cakes and a coke for .50 and go sit on the docks and watch the ferry come in. Great days. I have been playing guitar since 1965, I play more than ever, and always learn from your stuff…thanks…music is it’s own reward…. google billy bober, I have some music posted.
Hey Claude! It is a privilege to have a relative at that age! Congrats bot of you!
Happy birthday Ida live that clam jam truck im gonna check that out
Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday, just for you “Aunt Ida”, Happy Birthday, may all your dreams come true. As you blew out the candles, all did see the glow, its the sunshine of your smile whereever you go. At 87 I applaud your years and your looks. Keep going.
You must have felt the way the author of the below did. You, Aunt Ida are Happy, and so am I.
“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy.’ They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”
― John Lennon
Hey!! Congrats. Aunt Ida… Wish her as many more as she wants.. Hope I can last at least that long.. I’m almost there, (well two thirds + ). Keep up the good work!! Thanks for keeping us in the loop.. Geo.

This is one of the reasons (not the only one) why I’ll continue to purchase products from you. Thanks for always being you.

Many happy returns Ida, Claude keep on clauding dude, you rock. PS I don’t play guitar as I can’t afford one but if I could you’d be my teacher!!!!!
