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.
A: Look here I’am at 15
B: 15?
A: Still wearing Levis. I still look good in them too.
My Grandma has a thing or two to say about a thing or two. I love it.

Here’s one of them nifty plastic chairs!
1959. Whata babe.
Those glasses.
Still in 1959.
1962 (19 yrs old) Getting married. She’s beautiful!
My Grandma got divorced a couple years later. She started dating this nifty fellow^^^^
They lived in Colorado most their life. This is the only photo I have where there is snow.
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.
My Grandma’s dress is gorgeous.
My Grandfather.
He was a mechanic for awhile.
That couch looks promising.
I’d love to get my hands on them curtains.
My aunt’s and cousins.
The town my Father and Aunts grew up in. I really like those signs.
Space needle….It just looks nice….
There they all are. The whole shebang. With them curtains. Bah.
