Guess who's Grandma this is? How I loved to go visit her. (sorry about the cig. she didn't often smoke..wouldn't you know this pic she did...of course the world always thinks it smart...cool they would say today, forgetting the importance of health. My Grandma suffered thru some 19 strokes later in life spread out over the years & they finally killed her...sad) ANYWAY.....She would take my hand in hers and rub it and say...smile, smile. I was a serious little thing. I'm noticing the pretty wall paper in this picture and I remember the plush...velvety upholstered furniture she had. A reader's paradise...and did they (3 daughters & Gran) ever devour the novels...smile. Grandma made her own bread, and liked to bake and there was the endless needlework and novels strewn about the living room and the rest of the house...smile. Plus those purring cats rubbing up against your legs. And the candy dishs...and blooming houseplants. ~~~I wish I had time to come visiting you-all today, but I need to get going here quickly. I've got a cello lesson and I've got to drive up to town plus pick up a dining room chair we ordered. I will post a picture of that as soon as the camera batteries charge up (& I find the charger...grr). Also a picture of the work on the patio will be coming along. If you're here....I'm so glad you came over and I hope you have a peach of a day!
