Throwback Thursdays

This is me with my paternal grandmother, possibly on our shared birthday. If so, it probably would have been my second birthday and her 63rd, in 1976.

I really loved my grandma. She was a terrific cook and gave amazing squeezy hugs and would play cards with me for hours on end and lived in what I thought was the coolest apartment in Lafayette, Indiana. She died when I was only 11, and I still miss her.

[Please share your own throwback pix in comments. Just make sure the pix are just of you and/or you have consent to post from other living people in the pic. And please note that they don't have to be pictures from childhood, especially since childhood pix might be difficult for people who come from abusive backgrounds or have transitioned or lots of other reasons. It can be a picture from last week, if that's what works for you. And of course no one should feel obliged to share a picture at all! Only if it's fun!]
