Photo Friday - From the family album

My maternal grandmother with three generations of her girls:

1926, at age 24, with her first child (my mother).

1952 (at age 50) with her first grand-child (me).

At age 81, in 1983  with her great-grand-child (my oldest daughter).
 Thanks to good genes, she always looked years younger than her actual age.  No gray hair either, but that was thanks to Miss Clairol.

Lovely photos - and isn't Little Miss Catchy a sweetie? (and her ancestor and descendant I add hastily)

You chose some very good genes. Your grandmother was a knockout in 1926. With her bobbed hair and flapper dress, I'll bet she turned heads.

Catch Her in the Wry said...

white: Little Miss Catchy was doing what she often does - trying to hide her shy face in her shoulder.

crock: Well,the young fellows did because Grandpa was almost four years younger than she. I thought Grandma looked terrific at age 50. She died in her 90's and looked like she was in her 70's.

All of those generations of cute babies... :o)
