Old Photo Friday: Merry Christmas, Grandma Marie

WHO: Etta Marie Volgamore Brady
WHAT: Christmas 
WHERE: Oakridge, OR 
WHEN: December 1946 (I recognize the Christmas tree from a picture of my father's 3rd birthday)

My paternal Grandmother, Marie looks so forlorn for Christmas, not to mention that you could likely mistake her for some 1940's screen legend (think Joan Crawford or Dorothy Lamour).  The camera is rolling, she's smoking a cigarette and sipping on vodka after a long day at the diner.
