wednesday is my thrifting day. i usually take shane to my nana's house to be watched. when i get back i like to stay and visit and have a cup of coffee. we always end up going through pictures or jewelry boxes and nana tells me the story behind each item or photo. last wednesday we were looking at pictures and i came across the one below of my great great aunt rowena (aunt sissy is what everyone called her) . i have heard about her my whole life although i don't think i ever met her. we also came across several poems that she wrote. she seems like she was a very interesting lady.
she and her husband were ranchers in california and in her later life she lived in alaska. the above picture (with my uncle) is my favorite. what i wouldn't give to have been able to sit on those steps and talk to her. i bet she had amazing stories to share.
