    My Uncle (who was a Grandpa) as a teenage boy in the 50’s taken on the steps of his house. That is a big greenhead!!

    Thanks for posting these pics guys. I just lost my last living grandpa three years ago on March 8th. Didn't know him to be much of a hunter but did fish with him a few different times. I'll try and get with my mom and uncle to see if they have any old pics laying around.

    Gotta agree broducks1, memories are all we have.
    Lost grandma and grandpa at the same time in a car accident. Old Auburn & Mariposa, 1990.
    I'm really thankful for the photos I have as well.
    No refrigeration, heat, along with many other comforts, including neoprene.

    Better-half's grandpa also survived that quake after stepping off the boat from Austria the day before. Her great-grandpa was killed as the hotel collapsed leaving grandpa @15 an orphan that spoke no English.
