What a neat find!

A few years ago we got a big pile of books from my father, my parents were moving from a house into a condo and needed to get rid of some things. The other day I was looking through some of them trying to decide what to keep and what to get rid of.

I was looking at this one

Hey, my Grandmothers name is on the side

On the inside cover my Great Aunt has written her name. The top one is her handwriting. The second one with the date isn't her handwriting.

But that's not even the best part, check this out!
And notice her initials and the date are in the bottom right hand corner.

My Great Aunt Irma passed away several years ago at the ripe old age of 104. She was a real feisty ol bird with lots of interesting stories of her youth.
Needless to say, I won't be getting rid of this one.

Thanks! I think it would be fun to scan it so I can make a print to hang it up on the wall.
