Grandparents

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 Last Picture Show

“Christmas 2012 and this was the last pic of the night. Grandparents with their granddaughters. As you can see, everyone had had enough.”

Look What Grandma Found

“We live near a man-made lake that they partially drain during the winter. We were walking around were the water had receded when Grandma called us over to share her discovery. Probably one of the strangest pictures I have ever seen. ”

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.”
