from my grandmother


My grandmother just sent me these pics of my parents at their wedding. Aren't they cute?

1961

Maybe its just because I know what happens, but can't you just see that she's going to rip his heart out? It's so obvious that I wonder why people didn't warn him.

And the Alzheimer's?

They knew how to party!

Alcoholic on left, later he developed Alzheimers? (he's looking a little spacey even for being drunk).

Making dinner a party. You've got some good genetic stock.

Also, no. He's the only non-Czech though. by greyrat (4.00 / 1) #16 Tue Nov 06, 2007 at 05:36:19 AM EST
Alcoholic second from the left, but she was a scrapper: Died of non-alcohol causes (and non-cigarette causes despite being a Camel straight chain smoker for most of her life) at age 87-89. Alzheimer's third from the left. She committed "suicide" in her late 60s by refusing to eat after being institutionalized. She had orders in place for no heroic measures. All they could do is put her on an IV and pain meds.

Want to see some great grandparents ? by Phage (4.00 / 2) #5 Fri Nov 02, 2007 at 07:41:17 AM EST


She seems much shorter. by muchagecko (4.00 / 1) #6 Fri Nov 02, 2007 at 09:44:40 AM EST
Do you have any pics of them together?

Cool pics. Back in the day when portraits were quite an art.

I have a ton of scanned stuff. by Phage (4.00 / 1) #11 Sun Nov 04, 2007 at 10:38:51 PM EST
Most of them run to 1.5Mb which is a bit too heavy for Hulver I think.
I have a picture of my great-great-grandmother from Odessa on one side, and a picture of the old family castle/estate from the other. (I kid you not !) Some really fantastic ones of my grandfather on the farm before WW2 in the snow with his daughters.
I can email but I'd rather not post for reasons of anonymity.

I think she was 21. Crazy girl. She'd been married once before this.

I wonder why people didn't warn him by duxup (4.00 / 1) #17 Fri Nov 09, 2007 at 04:09:48 PM EST
Maybe they were scared of her heart ripping skills?

She's really only trouble by muchagecko (4.00 / 1) #18 Sat Nov 10, 2007 at 08:31:14 AM EST
to those that she's involved with romantically. She was pretty quiet and polite to everyone else.

There's always been 2 sides to my mom (bi-polar).
