Old Pictures

My cousin's 10 year wedding anniversary is this week. She is posting pictures and just posted one of my grandpa. I miss him. He went to be with the Lord 7 years ago last month. There's so much I wish I could talk to him about.

    How people described Grandpa was a white Bill Cosby.

    Everything. He was my best friend for many years until grandma deemed it inappropriate (dang old bird). He attempted to teach me wood working. He taught me how to drive a stick shift... He taught me about the Civil War even though his family was still in Germany/France as it was being fought .. I wish I could ask him about his family. If he ever saw pictures.. Walk around the town he grew up in and have him tell me stories about what it used to be. Take me to the old farmstead...or close, the nuclear power plant flooded the original homestead. Anything and everything.

    Grandpa talked a lot about it, but I didn't listen like I should have.

      That sounds like fun. Dad's mom didn't like us (Mom was 'one of those Christians') so dad's dad wasn't allowed to talk to us much. They were four hours away and mom's parents were six. We would go down every two or months for the weekend.

        Oh good! It's always fun to see how they react to the grandkids versus kids.

          No. We weren't allowed to see my family much. She met him when she was 15 months old, but my ex has all the pictures so I can't even look at the pictures. We went down for his funeral, but that was it.

            I am so mad about many things with my ex...but the way I let him manipulate and brainwash me into thinking my family didn't care is my biggest regret. My daughter lost 3 years of getting to know very special family.
