Another Photo of My Great Grandfather

A while back I posted a newspaper article about my Great Grandparents. On a recent trip to visit my parents in San Antonio, TX, my parents had on their mantle a picture of my Great Grand father. I thought I would share it as its just like I remembered him… always in his garden.

    Yep, this is how a lot of us remember him. That or in his shop, building the rocking chairs or tables, or out by the fish pond. Grandma has some good pictures of him! I miss him. He always had those danish cookies for us to have, if we were good. And he would swat us with his filp flop fly swatter. I remember when he turned 100, someone asked him what it was like to turn 100. He said that it was like being a brand new baby, you had to eat mushy food, wear diapers, etc. He had such a great sense of humor!
    Do you know how old he was in this picture?
    Thanks for sharing the picture, and the story about him!

    I think he was mid- 90's.
