Gentle Friends, today would have been my paternal Grandfathers birthday, he would have been 113, being born in Atlanta in 1907...
.... this portrait was for their 50th wedding anniversary in 1980... it was a fun weekend when they celebrated their anniversary, with a renewal of vows and a big party in the church hall. I know why my grandmother wanted to renew vows in the church because, in 1930, they ran off and eloped instead of a big church wedding. It's hard to imagine my very conservative and quiet grandparents as two reckless kids running off to get married by the Justice of the Peace!!
There you go sports fans. Thanks for stopping by do stop again!
Good Thoughts! Good Words! good Deeds!
