Mimi and Granddad

I love this!  My grandparents, Mimi and Granddad.  These are my mom's parents.  Granddad died when I was 6 years old.  I was down in Temple when they took him to the hospital, waking up to, I think, my Aunt Jane telling me what was going on.  If I remember right, he had a heart attack.  His name was David Edward, which is where my brother...and Joshua...both got their middle names!

Was that their car, Mom?

Andy needed to be in the picture, too!


My dad loved dogs... that's probably an understatement.  I think this one was Andy...Frosty came later. I could have it reversed, but that's what I think. 

When this picture was taken, which would have been 1954, was Aunt Jane living in Dallas..or did she come up with Mimi and Granddad?  

For those who may not know,
from left to right:
Andy, my dad, Mimi, Granddad, and my Aunt Jane.

Aunt Jane was my mom's sister and they lacked one day of being exactly 9 years apart.  (My mom was the oldest.)  

I wonder:  why does my dad and Granddad have on a tie?

Cute puppy...but who is holding it?

I'm thinking this is my great Aunt Mary and Uncle...but who is that with them holding that cute little puppy. 

I thought this was taken the same day as the one of my mom and dad pregnant with me...but I don't think so.  They have on jackets in this picture...and is that the same car?

Aunt Mary?

I think this is Aunt Mary...my grandfather's sister.  Is that right, Mom?  Is she the one that people would say "they threw away the key when she was made"?  (or something like that?)

I do love this car!

I have also noticed that quite a few photos were taken this same day.  The ones of my mom pregnant..and everyone is dressed up!  What was going on that day?

I need help with this one!

I'm not sure who everyone in this picture is.  On the left is Mimi..but next to her...is that Pa?...Meemaw...and then the two on the right?  Does this look familiar, Mom?
I'm assuming these are some of Mimi's siblings?

I sure do like Mimi's dress!
