Monday Moment



oldies but goodies.  Last Monday I featured my maternal grandparents.  Now I'm featuring my dad's side of the family. His father died when he was young, so my grandmother (Julia Crowther) raised him (middle picture). His older sister kept track of him too. (she's far right in the bottom picture)
These pics were probably late 1970s, early 80s

Tuesday is my aunt's birthday - 92. She's sharp and clever as ever. Had to move out of her home, but still darn independent at the senior living facility.

 Happy Birthday, Aunt Janice!

  1. Glad your aunt did well with the more to senior living. I'm moving my mom there soon and hope she does well too.

    1. good luck to you and her. It's all about attitude. My aunt decided herself that it was best for her and she was going to make the most of it. Positivity is key.

  2. Killer pics! I adore old family photos. Reminds me of a selfie-less age, among other things. Hope your aunt has a great birthday!

  3. I love looking through old family photos. In years to come, scrolling down a computer screen won't be the same as the feeling on Truprint paper in our hands.

    Happy birthday to your aunt!

    It's nice to have spitfires like her in the family - right?
