The table sat in the kitchen for years, at one time it was painted yellow with a red top. Red must have been one of Grandmas favorite colors. It was present for many meals of chicken and noodles and blueberry pie. If the table could talk it would have many tall tales to tell of hunting and fishing adventures.
The table is off to a new home in Montana with Far Guys cousin Jay, it’s Minnesota days are over. It has served the needs of two families well, and now perhaps little boys will play games on it with their Grandmother and Grandfather..maybe the Grandma will bake cookies..and maybe new memories will be made.
From left to right, Far Guys Grandfather Jim, Uncle Ron, Far Guys Dad Marvin, Uncle Archie and Uncle Jimmy. This photo was taken sometime before 1967. It is five to nine in the evening, two have ties on and two have flannel shirts…and Grandpa of course is in his bib overalls. I thought at first they may be having cake, but I see the tops of salt and pepper shakers..so that must be one of Grandmas hot dishes in the center of the table..it probably has a potato chip topping:)
