Week Twentytwo

No new images this week so, I pulled some off of my past files of people. Below is my wifes grandma who died just short of 105 years old. She is holding our son who, at the time of his birth was her 200th Great Grandchild. More arrived before her death. Above are her and our sons hands on the same day. She lived at home right up until she left this earth and for the most part took care of herself. She predated cars, telephone, tv, radio, and most things we take for granted today.
"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but
by the number of moments that take our breath away." unknown

"People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are.
I don't believe in circumstances.
The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them." George Bernard Shaw
