Old Photo Friday: Grandpa Gone Fishing!
WHO: James Wharton
WHEN: late 1930's (written on back of picture)
I don't remember much about my Mother's Father, James H. Wharton. He passed away when I was eight and lived in Seattle long before I made regular treks north. Every summer we made at least one trip in the car from Springfield to their home in Bothell to swim in their pool and get terrorized by their yappy dog, Suzie. I know he loved me as there are many many pictures of the two of us together when I was a baby.
In this picture I see the eyes of his son, my uncle Mickie but I also see the eyes of my cousin, Mickie's son, Matt.
