Wordless Wednesday: My Handsome Grandpa

Lemuel Harrison --my maternal grandfather pictured center
I was looking through one of my mother's old picture albums today and came across this one.
I love how handsome and young he looks. Also, I love how you just catch my brother's eyes in the bottom right corner of the shot.  I think this picture was taken in 1971. My uncle Ricky is the one with glasses and I think that is my mother's step-brother Harry in the background. Looks like the basement at grandpa's house.

  1. You look kinda like him, don't you. He looks so happy too. I like your brother is just there in the corner looking at us.

  3. What a great picture! Pictures like this so wonderfully capture what it was like at family gatherings in the 1960s and 70s--the homemade layer cake, the wood paneling on the walls, the Corelle Ware plates, etc.

    1. Thanks Angella! My brother most definitely favors his grandfather. I am starting to see it in myself. I always felt like I looked more like my dad though.
