I am busy scanning all of the newspaper clippings that Far Guy’s Grandma Tracie tucked and glued into a 1915 Agricultural Yearbook. In essence she made her own scrapbook.
I call it Grandmas Purple book. It has weddings, engagements and obituary newspaper clippings and other “stuff” important to Grandma.
I have scanned the entire book ..now I am dating all the clippings..if possible. Sometimes it takes a bit of research to come up with a date..and sometimes it is just impossible. I will present them in a timeline on the private family blog when I get them all dated.
I crop the articles..Far Guy sits next to me and often looks over at my monitor. I got his attention with this clipping.
Far Guy said “I remember that! Grandma showed me that years and years ago! I couldn’t ever see anything.” He still cannot. I tried and tried to point it out..nothing..he said “I guess I am never meant to see it.” He remembers his Grandmother pointing it out to him many times..to no avail.
I can see it just fine..how about you?
