John's Monday Photo Shoot. Letter G

Your Monday Photo Shoot: The Letter G

From-http://journals.aol.com/johnmscalzi/bytheway/entries/5129

We're getting lexographic for this week's Photo Shoot:

Your Monday Photo Shoot:  Snap a picture of something beginning with the letter "G."  Because I don't think the letter "G" gets nearly as much attention as it should.

Well John, I went back into my past to produce two of my  "G" pictures, then one postcard and one picture I took recently.

1..My great grandparents Mattie and Franklin Olmstead (on my dad's side of the family).  She passed away when I was 5 so I don't remember her.  But he lived until my junior year of high school and he lived just across the driveway from us in his later years so I knew him well. He was a dear man.

2..My grandparents Clara and John Stern,parent's of my mom.  They migrated from Kansas to Sunnyside in eastern Washington in 1920.   Grandpa was a farmer and grandma worked hard taking care of the family and feeding the farm hands. He passed away when I was in the 8th grade and she died a couple years later.   They were both wonderful grandparents and I spent a lot of time with them as a child.  I can remember grandpa used Prince Albert in the can and she was always baking cookies. 

3..Gig Harbor, WA lighthouse.  This postcard pictures the unique lighthouse in the tiny fishing community of Gig Harbor.  Just across the Narrows Bridge from Tacoma, WA,  it's a great place for shopping and to have lunch while watching the boats come and go.

4..John has his Gabby and I have mine.  I think John's Gabby is a very cute young lady and I think my Gabi is cute in a different way. I'm glad  I don't have to worry about boys coming to call on my Gabi in a few years. She will always be home with me.

That's my "G" offering.    Until next time....Linda
