Arthur Grant doesn’t mince words, he’s come to Atlantic Beach for the last 30 years because he likes the ladies.

Bernard Terry, Grant’s wingman, approached the lady and told her it was Pop’s 80th birthday, and politely asked if she would take a picture with him.
Much to Grant’s delight, she obliged him. He wrapped his arm around her with a wide grin, while his friends and other passers-by took photographs.
“A pretty girl just turns my head,” Grant said. “My wife always asks me when I get back home if I had a good time, and I say, ‘yes, I did.’”
For the record, Grant’s birthday isn’t until Nov. 1.
