G is for Grandpa
I'm redecorating my sunroom tables and mantel and came across this photo of my Dad. He was a wonderful grandpa and father. He passed way in his 60's but my children got to know him until they were in their teens.
This must have been around 1930, my family being farmers didn't have much money but I'm so glad someone had a camera to commemorate this grade school picture. I know the picture is so faded but notice he was carrying a metal lunch bucket. Wonder what my grandma packed for him that day?
My Dad went to school through the 8th grade and worked on the family farm until he went into the Army/Air Force in WWII. Even though he had no formal education he went on to be a partner in a machine shop here in our city and become a success with lots of hard work and determination.
