LIFE is only as FUN as you MAKE IT

So this blog posting will be in honor of my Grandmother who left her mortal coil last week.

My Grandmother was a Coal Miner's Daughter from West Virginia and one of 15 children.  Born March 26, 1920.  She had many passions but what I remember best was her love of dressing up in a costume and putting on a show.

She would be the one sporting a mustache in this mock wedding held at the annual family reunion a few years back.  

Here is a picture of a few of those Harris Kids with out costumes

I believe this one belongs to me... She is now a Theater Major in College - I wonder where could she have gotten all that dramatic flair......

Ahh the Beauty Pageant those of us too OLD to participate (I mean that mentally not physically) laughed ourselves silly at the antics while the judges chose a winner, and this was before they brought out the moonshine.

A momentary lapse in the silliness for a serious pose.

I am so very grateful my children got to spend some of their carefree summer days in the craziness of this amazing family.

Some of her other passions included basket weaving, gardening and her puppies. 

I hope you enjoyed the pictures and remember 
LIFE is only as FUN as you MAKE IT.
