Their Bad Mother

Wordless Wednesday, Nostalgia-In-Lieu-Of-An-Eulogy Edition

back in the day

My grandparents, on a road trip in British Columbia in the early
1940’s. I’d like to think that I retraced some of their steps the other
. But even if I didn’t, the BC portion of my trip is still
dedicated to their memory. *kissestoheaven*

(Wow, I really just can’t get the hang of this ‘wordless’ thing, can I?)

Like this photo – I have an almost identical one (right down to the vehicle) of my own grandparents. Also taken in the 1940s.

I also have a very similar picture of my grandparents, taken in the same era, with my grandfather also in a sailor suit. They, however, were not much for traveling back in those days. It wasn’t until they’d been married for over 40 years that he finally convinced her to buy an RV and see some of the US. She was terrified of driving, and of traveling.
(PS – Most of my Wordless Wednesday posts are named Nearly Wordless Wednesday, because I have an aversion to not writing something. It’s a sickness.)
