Saturday Snapshot



Snapshot Saturday is hosted by Alyce of At Home with Books. To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don't post random photos that you find online.


TBG has scanned some old photos into the computer for Family Tree. Just thought I'd post one of my favorites. The student driver (lol) is my dad and the teacher is my grandmother, Carrie. I never post photos of me on the internet but TBG and my kids say I look just like my grandmother in this photo (in my younger days, of course!). In other ones I have of her, I don't at all. Weird, huh!

I'm not sure when this was actually taken but my guess is 1910 or so. Don't you just love the hats?
