Yup! I AM perpetually late for any and everything! Here’s my shot for Jenn’s Time Warp Tuesday!
Remember a couple weeks ago, I posted the picture of the three sisters for TWT? Well, here are their parents.
Can you understand the sisters’ sense of humor now? I really wish I knew these folks…they were long gone by the time I came around. This shot is from their 50th wedding anniversary!
To give you an even better idea of the type of man my Great Grandfather was, here’s a poem he wrote:
After breakfast, after dinner, and also after tea
And many times all through the day they are confronting me.
Dirty dishes, dirty pans, knives and forks and spoons,
Dirty kettles, dirty cans lay about the rooms.
Still I wash and put away at suppertime and noon.
Dirty dishes never stay long about the room
For I need them every one in my daily work
To cook, to bake, to eat our meals t’would never do to shirk.
How the children hate them I am sure, I can’t see why -
I have washed for many years and in the bye and bye
Their children will be dodging, twill then be left for them
To wash, to wipe, to put away, AGAIN, AGAIN, AGAIN!
