Just for fun, I thought that I would try some pop art!
On Sunday, Grandma was telling me about a choker she gave me.Â It was her mother’s locket and has a picture of both of her parents inside. On the other side is her mother’s initials.
Since her mother died when Grandma was a year old, Grandma is pretty sure the necklace is over a 100 years old.Â She assumes it is older than that, but is not sure.Â She does not remember how she got the necklace, but she gave it to me a few years ago to enjoy.
Megan loves the locket. She went over and stole it from Grandma while we talked.Â I made her return it and ask for it nicely.Â Once she did, I let her wear the locket the rest of the evening.
She told me that when they got married, Grandpa’s fingers were very thin, but after they were married his hands got very big and people would call them “hams” instead of hands.
When Grandpa was hurt during WWII, they thought that his ring was lost.Â However, it was found and send to Grandma with Grandpa’s other belongings.
Everyone loved the water.Â We also enjoyed rock hunting, finding fossils and learning how to skip rocks.
It was a great mini vacation!
For Allan’s birthday, we smoked a turkey for him. It was the best turkey recipe that we have had in a long time!
Guess which weighed more–the turkey or Megan 🙂
