This is my grandmother, Maxine.  She was born in 1909.  What you do not see in the picture is that she had very blue eyes and was rather commanding.  She was a librarian before she was married and she had perfect penmanship.


  1. So much character in that little face! I can't see the blue eyes of course, but I can see she would be commanding. The face says, I know what I want and I'm going to do it. Go grandma!

  2. I think I'm going back to look and see what Ben's pictures say...maybe my own...and Joels...that's amazing! You showed an earlier picture of a Grandma as a young teen. Same one?

    1. Nope. The New Year's pic is of my GREAT-grandmother on the other side of the family. This grandmother was born in 1909 and had her twins late in life, at 40.

  3. She was a gorgeous baby! What a neat picture to have.Is this where Woodjie gets his big blues from?
