Grandparents

Favorite Things

“Here we see my uncle and grandparents, in a photo taken by my mom. My grandpa (the one with the 3-foot long pointy shirt collar) is happily showing us a centerfold spread from a gentlemen’s magazine while my uncle and grandma display a crochet blanket. My mom told everyone to grab their favorite item from around the house before she took the photo.”

Bottle Service

“When your grandparents own a bar, baby bottles take on a whole new twist. Many of our family photos star the eyes-half-mast bar regulars as a backdrop. It was years before I figured out (most) of them weren’t actually my relatives!”

Sweat

“This is a photo of my grandparents, aunt and uncle around 1970. Nana said it was about 100 degrees in the studio, but they weren’t about to reschedule.”

Mahalo

“My grandparents in Hawaii in the early 70’s. And no, that’s not grandma on the right. She’s on the left giving the stink eye. If looks could kill, that hula girl wouldn’t live to see her next luau.”

The Luck O’ The Irish

“My grandparents’ Christmas card from 1951 and my favorite annual reminder that font choice matters.”
