Flash Back Friday

Flash back Friday is a glimpse into the past courtesy of my grandma's (Thelma's) old journals. Thanks to reader suggestions I will provide a character list so you don't feel so lost. Since some of the people died before I was old enough to really know them I hope my family will comment to straighten it out if I list someone incorrectly.

This week we journey back in time to June 13-18, 1979.

Charles- My Grandpa (married to Thelma)
Aunt Omy and Uncle Bill- (Grandma's sister and brother-in-law)
George and Louise (Grandma's sister and brother-in-law)

Betty and Richard ( Grandma's daughter and son-in-law)
Donna and John (Grandma's daughter and son-in-law)

How cool! The baby came on my birthday (ok I came on his!) LOL

Thanks for the "character list" It makes it easier for us who dont know them to put "family ties"!

I didnt know they were in Oklahoma! My parents are from Bartlesville an hour North of Tulsa!
