Just in Case

Just in case you follow me on Pinterest and you didn’t believe me that this picture of Elizabeth Taylor reminded me of old pictures of my grandma. My uncle uploaded some old photos not the specific one that’s like the Liz photo, but I think you can see what I was talking about.

The top photo is when she was 15 and my grandpa bought her those wooden wheeled rollerskates. I think my sister has them now. The bottom photo is a few years later when she and my grandpa lived in Pacifica, CA with their four children. Craziness. My grandma was only a couple of years older than me when I was was born. How times have changed.

    they are irish twins. they are all about 13 months to 18 months apart. back when you could mortgage your car to pay for your hospital bill.

    the broody boy is still broody and the girls are still worried about the youngest. so funny.
