Diane Nolin of "Genealogy: Moving Beyond BMD" has issued a challenge for National Grandparents Day and you can read about Diane's challenge here:

Diane Nolin's CHALLENGE:  "Tell a story as told to you by one of your grandparents!"

I would like to expand on that challenge slightly:
  • Did your grandparents ever tell you a story that you never forgot?
  • Did you ever hear a story about one of your grandparents that you never forgot?
  • Did you ever hear a story about a grandparent who you NEVER met that makes you wish you could travel back in time to talk to them?

The picture below was taken in Windsor, Ontario on the porch of my great grandparents home on Campbell Avenue.

I feel very fortunate to have this photograph.

Happy Grandparents Day
