I chose to make the slightly more elaborate original version of the block - I like the way the white stripes create a focus on the center. Again we have an "x" to signify voting.
But for my own history lesson, I have to turn back to my grandparents whose 99th wedding anniversary is this coming week on November 27th. I posted the one early photo of the two of them back on Week 1 - but here's another. There is no date associated with this photo, but they both appear to be very young:
Although Faye also had a great sense of humor, I suspect the rowdiness was somehow related to Grandpa's - here's an undated photo of a party -
On a less raucous note, here's a family photo from Faye and Fielding's 50th Wedding Anniversary -
|May, Fielding (Buddy), Alice, Fielding, Faye, Loris and Myra|
This is the formal portrait they had taken for the occasion.
By the time Fielding died in 1982, they had been married close to 69 years. Faye would have been 71, and Fielding 73 at the time of this photo. Neither one of them dyed their hair!
