Terrific well done story about some really good people. The Johnsons are fortunate to live in a place with very supportive and caring staff. After living a long and productive life, still having a talent to be shared with others is fantastic. Hats off to Peter Ostroushko for his willingness to be part of the occasion.

What a wonderful story. Happy Birthday, Mr. Johnson! What a blessing to celebrate a century and be also fortunate to celebrate with his wife of 71 years! It would have been wonderful to hear him sing Hälsa dem därhemma.. It was a gracious act by Ostroushko to honor Mr. Johnson.

Anyone else remember seeing Peter back in the mid 70's as the fiddle and mandolin player with Becky Riemer and the The Sky Blue Water Boys? It was clear back then the success that awaited Peter! Great story!

Curious what Mr. Johnson thinks of Doug Kershaw (The Ragin' Cajun)?
