Many times I have written about my Grandfather.

This collage is but a few of the family photos of the era.

My Grandfather (Bill) in his latter years.

Bill’s brother in law (Jack) along with his sister,

…my Grandmother…Bill’s wife.

Bill’s eldest daughter, Mary,

with her grandfather, (centre bottom).

Mary passed away a few years ago.

Top centre is a photo of all personnel involved

in firing The First Shot of The Great War, August 5, 1914. 

Grandfather Bill is standing

on the extreme left of the group.

A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Traditions

A few years ago I unwittingly

became part of a new tradition.

Number 2 Son asked me if I would like to go the movies.

However, we were not attending with the rabble,

rather we were going Gold Class.

Gold Class in Geelong is a small theatre

which only caters for 24 patrons.

We are usually in seats 15-16 or 21-22.

I had not been aware of the ‘tradition’

until the following year when I was again

asked out ‘…for our traditional movie outing…’

This year it is to be the new

Star Wars movie in December.

Yes,  I have already been asked! 🙂

The tradition continues.  🙂

Whenever I think of, or hear,

the word ‘loss’….

…my mind immediately thinks of where

most of my departed family now rest. 

And in what is obviously a small

country cemetery there are also many

memories surrounding those who are not

family in the strictest sense of the word.

We are not grandparents

so cannot claim the title.

However I often talk about

my Grandfather in World War I.

He passed away in 1952

about a week after the only photo

of a grumpy 18 month old Woolly

was taken with his Grandfather.
