ABC Wednesday - The Noble Letter N


N is for NanNan and here she is (on the right):


Well, I so hope the rules about taking the pix yourself are not real strict cause I surely wasn't there when this was taken.  NanNan is what I used to call my Grandmother (on my mother's side, obviously).  When I got older I called her something else, but that's another story.  Isn't she beautiful?  And sooooo short!  That's PopPop, my Grandfather, next to her and behind her is his mother. I know that she came over on the boat from Ireland, but I don't know about NanNan and PopPop, since family history was so guarded (see my very first post to understand this).  This picture was taken in South Philly.  My Grandmother had the very softest facial skin in the whole world, I can still feel it today.  Join in the fun, go on over to the ABC Wednesday blog http://abcwednesdayround3.blogspot.com/ and show us your Ns.

Happy Wednesday - Happy N.  Peace.  B : )

I like old photos and I love the way your great-grandmother is peeping over the shoulders of her son and daughter-in-law! Good N.

What a nice picture to have. I just love the clothes. Yes it looks like southphilly all the way. Funny I have picturs of my granny in southphilly too :) but of course with the way things are why wouldn't I??

Really lovely photo! You might want to play along on the Flashback Friday meme if you like taking walks down memory lane - I'll have to try to dig up the link for you, it's been a while since I've played. I'll send it soon :-)
