Few people make it to the age of 90, and perhaps even fewer still have documented their lives as well as Seymour’s Dale Weasner.

“I started keeping a diary when I was in the Army,” said Weasner, who is celebrating his 90th birthday today.

Weasner not only documented his first date with his first wife, Ruth Louise Brand (July 13, 1941) and the day the couple purchased their first home at 422 Lee Blvd. (May 19, 1948), but more mundane items such as the day he sold the family’s television tower for $100 (May 24, 1974) as well as the day someone stole the battery out of his 1967 Dodge Rambler (Dec. 23, 1982).
