That got your attention, eh?

Here's my grandparents in the 50's whooping it up at the Arts & Letters Club...



And my Grandfather Woody and his best pal bartending that same night...

My maternal grandparents, from last year. We were celebrating my grandfather's 80th birthday, and my brother told them this was how to say "I love you" in sign language.




Now, my paternal grandparents, that's where the fun is at. My family has four or five boxes of slides documenting their travels as a military officer's family -- in the '50s they lived all over -- France, Japan, Texas, Wyoming, Washington, Southern California. They went to Opening Day at Disneyland 50 years ago, but I'm not getting my hopes up for pictures of that. I haven't seen the slides myself yet, but I'm working on getting them copied, I'm sure there are some real gems in there.

I posted this same photo in a different thread awhile back. This is my grandparents at a Lipton Tea function at the Hawaiian Room in NYC in the 1950s. My grandparents are in the very back. Grandma is looking off to her left with the black V-neck, Grandpa is to her right with bamboo coming down between them.

Really? I've been trying to find out what is the story behind them - because they gave them to us for Christmas several years ago, and my parents claim that they were given to my Grandparents in the 40s by some missonaries just back from the far East.... I never really got the story, both of them passed away last year....

Are yours exactly the the same? Or just similar?

This guy is the splitting image of my late Grandpa, he now resides in my back yard.
The birdbath, not Grandpa.
