Grandma and Grandpa

I’m having a surprisingly hard time writing up a post about my late grandfather. He was a complicated guy, and I have complicated feelings about him.

So while I overthink and under-write that post, here’s another picture of him, this time with my grandma, Lenore, on what must have been one of her birthdays: she was born on the Fourth of July, and for a long time had me convinced that her small Michigan town was holding a parade just for her birthday.  I love their smiles and the jaunty way he’s flipped up the brim of his hat.

(I only have this picture because my aunt and uncle took the time to comb through their photos and scan some of the best. Thanks, Barb and Greg!)
