Back in the day: Rose’s Family.

6 Nov

I got a ton of old photos the other day of my wonderful bootiful grandmother. She was pretty grand enough to loan them to me for the photo album I am creating. I thought I’d contribute some of them to Toni’s back in the day section.

B: Is that grandpa?!
A: Yes. I took that photo. We were driving to get eloped.
B: He is handsome.
A: I know. Why’d ya think I married him. He was good lookin’ and I thought he had money.
My grandparent’s met while my grandmother was waitressing. He use to leave her two dollar tips to get her attention. She likes to joke around how she was swindled out of a rich man and fooled but in the same sentence she will tell you how she married my grandfather three times.
They’ve almost been married 50 years.

My Great Grandfather forced them to get married in the church.
