PINE ISLAND, Fla. - Guy Glinski turned 97 today, and like years past, had something of a surprise up his sleeve.
Guy first contacted WINK News in 2003 when he turned 90, because he wanted to go skydiving. Since then, the Bokeelia man has taken up exercise, started a vegetarian diet and played the harmonica in a church band.
His latest twist? His niece completed a family tree book that shows Guy is an uncle to 263 people. He says his sister Evelyn and her husband had 12 kids in 12 years, and that started the ball rolling. "They were very busy," says Guy, "they didn't sleep much."
Guy says he plans to continue his regimen of visiting family, friends, riding his bike and driving his truck. He also plans on celebrating his 100th birthday by skydiving.
