52 Photos Week 13 Funny and this is my 13th week participating.
This week I decided to show you a little of the life of Grace Hazel Whelchel Safford.
Grace was born in Iowa but her family moved to California when she was 3. I think she took her farm heart with her to California, for she certainly was not a girly, girl.
When the other girls were getting dressed for the prom this is what Grace was doing.
And in 1918, the year she got married, she was out catching cats.
Another picture of Grace the same year she was married. Obviously she was a big fan of hunting.
In 1920, Grace and her husband did not have any children yet, so I guess she didn't feel the need to get dressed up around the house. That "farm girl at heart" had still not left her.
Finally we see the beautiful Grace emerge, and it is the year of her death, 1985. There was a very pretty woman under all of that hunting equipment she carried around for all of those years.
I looked through thousands of my pictures, and I just had to laugh at Grace. I had several other pictures of her during the years, and she just was not a fancy woman. I was surprised to find one of her dressed up. So I had a big smile on my face when I saw one. I hope you can see some humor in her story also.
