throwback thursdays (vol. 12): homage to the grandparents

A little late today, but it’s still Thursday so who’s counting?

Today’s TBT post is in homage to my Grandma, who I posted about yesterday. In case you were wondering, I went to see her last night and she’s doing pretty well, all things considered. The side of her face is drooping a little bit and she is having a little trouble talking but it was easy to understand her and she knew who I was. It was hard. But I’m so glad I spent some time with her and that The Kid did too.

Today’s TBT picture is of my grandparents soon after they were married. I don’t think my grandma could be more than 18 or 19 in that picture. They look like movie stars!

At any rate, today’s TBT is about my grandparents and what a typical voicemail from them might go like. I still have this one saved on my phone.
