Throwback Thursday…Way back to 1941

This isn’t running related but definitely family related. I was visiting my grandmother this past weekend. She’s a young 96 years. Still living in her own house and able to move without major issues. The last time I was able to visit was back at Christmas when we went up to visit for the day.

But while I was walking around I found this gem of a picture.

I took a picture of it with my iPhone so it’s not the best quality but I showed my grandmother later and she could remember everyone in this picture. Pretty good for a 96 year young lady. I never got to meet my grandfather but I have heard numerous stories and how remarkable he was. His best man was his dad and so that is the older man in this picture. My grandmother was born in 1918 which would have put her at 23 years young. She couldn’t stop smiling when she was looking at the picture. Good Memories. I hope to hang this picture up in my house one day.
