Nostalgic November - Day 4

Those "generation" photos.  I'm sure most every family has them.  The first photo is circa 1967.  I was 8 years old and still an only child!  My mom was 25 here, my gram was 46 and my great-grandmother was 67.  My great-grandmother had four children, 2 sons and 2 daughters, who all settled in our hometown.  Everyone lived within 2 blocks of each other.  Growing up there were lots and lots of times together.  My great-grandmother would start her day with coffee at our house, then she'd head up the street to my great-aunt's house for coffee time with her.  My mom and I would venture up there and my grandma would come over after her housework was done.  (that lady sure had a clean house!).  This would happen day after the day!  Sometimes when coffee time finally ended everyone would head home to start dinner and we'd usually end up eatting one family or another too!  It was a wonderful, happy way to grow up. 

This generations photo moves to October of 1983.  It was taken at my mom's wedding to my step-dad.  R was 8 months old, I was 27, my mom was 44 and my gram was 65.  If you notice the mark on R's head, that morning he pulled the musical mobile down on him in his crib.  He had a huge egg and mark!  Oh, my gram was mad at me, letting "her boy" get hurt!
