Hi Kathy, I am happy to see you over here at Grit. The picture of your great-great grandma with her spinning wheel sounds wonderful! I think I was born in the wrong century also, sometimes. Thanks for coming over and commenting. Pam

Hi Pam - I especially like the old photos of your family, the black and white ones. They remind me of the photos I used to look at as a child with my Grandma, who was born in the late 1800's. Her Dad was a photographer, so there are many, many photos of her and the family when they were small at the turn of the century. I remember one in particular of my great-great grandma sitting outside under a tree, using a spinning wheel, long dress, apron, and bonnet on. I often think I was born in the wrong century. Thanks for sharing your photos and your life with all of us. Take care, from KY. Hope your canning is going well today.
