Here's something you don't see every day.
It hasn't been altered. So I suppose this was a double exposure.
But how crazy is this photo?
I have posted photos of my other grandparents several times for Foto Friday.
So today I will introduce you to
Joe and Louise.
We called Joe - "Papa",
and Louise, we always called "Nanny".
My paternal grandfather (his name was Jack) passed away many years before I was born. He and Louise had 4 boys. The boys were very young when he passed away. I don't think my grandmother ever really got over losing Jack. But she did eventually meet and marry Joe. He loved my Grandmother so much. He took care of her, and she took care of him.
About 12 years ago, as neither were in good health, our Nanny had to put Papa into the nursing home that was about 2 blocks from their home. He had alzheimers, and was always confused, but he just wanted to come home to Louise. When she passed away, I went back "home" to be with the family. Papa was told that she was gone. That very night, at around 2 a.m. , we received a call from the nursing home, and he had passed away too. He couldn't bear to live with out her. He died of a broken heart.
We buried them together.
It's not a sad story, it's a story of true love.
It was our Nanny, that gave me her love of gardening.
I miss her.
