First Car!

I was recently looking through a photo album from the late 1970's and found this picture, me with my first car!  It wasn't new, a 1968 Impala, but it was special. This car was given to me by my Uncle in California.
He drove the car from California to Tennessee and gave it to me. My Aunt had died and he had a truck and didn't need the car. He said that he wanted me to have it because I had done so much to help my Mom take care of my Grandparents.My Uncle always felt bad that he was so far away and couldn't help. It was a total surprise and totally not necessary. I LOVED my Grandparents and didn't feel I was doing anything special. I didn't even have my driver's license when he gave it to me. He called several times in the spring and each time he would ask if I had my license. I got busy and went to get my license shortly after getting the car.

Treasure Chest Thursday - Memories of My Grandparents!

Grannie and PaPa holding apples which my Mom, Dad and I brought back with us from California in August 1979. These apples were grown by my Uncle in his back yard. As I remember they were delicious. PaPa is also wearing a LA Dodgers hat which we got him. We didn't go to a game but I guess you can't go to LA and not buy a hat for a baseball fan. We didn't have cable back in 1979 but PaPa watched all the games that were on TV.

Fay Newby Kelley - Obituary Card

I knew that there was an obituary card for my Grandmother somewhere in my house but I couldn't remember where. This was one of several obituary cards and other treasures I found recently.
