Five O’Clock Shadow 8

Five O'Clock Shadow 8

Originally uploaded by evo_terra.

I love my grandparents. 61 years of marriage, each pushing 80. Grandma is about as much a teetotaler as you can get, and grandpa's crazy as a loon. But I love 'em.

I don't get to see them very often, as they live in eastern OK and aren't big fans of airplanes. Right before this recent trip to OK, one of my grandmother's sisters passed away and we made the long haul to up by the panhandle (look at a map) to pay respects.

During the five hours in the car, Gramps regaled all of us with stories. -- and he's the king of stories, let me assure you. Though he has a penchant for incorporating recent news bits into his work and war tales, his memory of his childhood is quite amazing; and what stories he has to tell. This picture was taken during the "herding turkeys" story (totally true). Ask me to tell it to you some day.
