Wednesday, May 22, 1912: And leave it blank.
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
Since Grandma wrote next to nothing a hundred years ago today—though she obviously felt compelled to write something—I’m going continue sharing pictures.
This is a photo of Grandma and her sister Ruth that was taken very late in their lives. Ruth died in 1977 and Grandma in 1980, so I’m guessing that it was taken in the mid-1970s.
In some odd way I think this photo is one of my favorites.
After a lifetime of good times and difficult times, it’s fun to see the two elderly sisters sharing stories and reminiscing. Regardless of age, life is good!
