My Grandparents

My Grandpa. His name was Charlie. My sisters and I all called him 'Tain Tain' (that was the sound his 2 cycle motorcycle made is the story behind it). He was a sculptor and an artist:

 

My Grandma. Her name was Bev. She was an opera singer. The text reads "To my wonderful teacher and inspiring friend with much love. - Beverly Ellis  6-18-40":

 

I'm about halfway through the photos (found on flickr).

Brandy - Me too! it's a total blast going through old family photos. We don't have many of them in my fam, so I've never seen most of these. :)
