The photo is my son and myself. Now days you can get a photo made to look old like this one. This photo was taken when this was the new look.

Harry S Truman was president when I was born and world war II had ended. I grew up in a time when lunch was put in a brown paper bag and a sandwich was wrapped with wax paper. There was no such thing as pantyhose, we wore stockings that attached to the rubbery clippy things that attached to the girdle. Convenience stores were not common and when we took a trip we packed a picnic basket because many places did not have fast food. Highways had places to pull over and stop, some with picnic tables.

Grandma Donna wrote,  Hi Elizabeth W, that is very interesting that they have the same death date, and I know you must miss your Grandmother with such a recent death.  I intended to go back to Billie's grave this year but we had been sick and did not go, I still need to go back out there for a visit.  With my genealogy research I have started including the name of the cemetery that our ancestors are buried once I find them to pass down the information.  When Charles retires we would like to drive to many of them to visit the cemeteries just because it feels the right thing to do.  We have learned by going to the ones we have gone to so far to carry some garden tools and a broom and such as that to tidy them up while we are there.  Also good to have paper and a charcoal stick to do rubbings of the older grave headstones before they cannot be read.  Thank you for your comment.
