Monday, July 28, 1913 – Thursday, July 31, 1913: Nothing very much doing for these days. It’s so terrible hot and I have a hard time of it just doing nothing. I’d hate to go anyplace such weather as this is.
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
This is the last of four days that Grandma lumped together into one diary entry. Since Grandma didn’t write anything specific for this date, I’m going to share a picture of Grandma and me.
Others who have family history blogs often have awesome pictures of themselves with the relative they are writing about—and I’m always slightly jealous.
The few pictures that I have of me with Grandma have many limitations. Time has taken a toll on the color, the picture has lighting problems or is blurry, and so on.
But, in spite of the poor quality of the picture above, I really like this photo so I decided to share it with you.
