After the tiny rant I had yesterday, if I didn't scare you away, I thought I would share a few heritage pages with you. Nancy has me so inspired! These were done long ago, and are not nearly as well put together as hers, but they are mine, and I love them just the same! I also love the old photographs because it takes me back to a time when things were simpler. Not that they thought they were, my Grandparents thought we were going to hell in a handbasket 30 years ago!! These are my Dad's Parents, Lyle and Bertha Brooks. Pa has been gone for 16 years, Grandma for 22. Seems like yesterday!
This last one is of my Grandfather, Lyle, on the farm. I love the candid-ness of it. I LOVE to remember him this way, even though this was far before I knew him. The only way I knew him was in a house in town after we took over the farm, or in a nursing home. There were no bib overalls, just regular clothes, a baseball game, and a candy dish!
Have a great Wednesday, all! --Kerilou
