I mean to make this an annual event, Jul's. Going through my mom's photo boxes, I've found & scanned several birthday pix of Evelyn.

TK, what a beautiful photo of your grandmother's 85th birthday. She did not look 85 in this photo. Looks like she got a lot of gifts that day.

I love the name of your blog "Before My Time." That sums all what all of us are doing which is searching history "before our time."

In March, I did two similar birthday tributes on my Find Your Folks blog:

1. My great grandmother Bell Bullock Johnson, 1890-1982, http://findyourfolks.blogspot.com/2008/03/happy-birthday-grandma-bell.html

2. Her daughter and my great aunt Mary Johnson, 1927-1986, http://findyourfolks.blogspot.com/2008/03/happy-birthday-aunt-mary.html

I added religious music (Holy, Holy, Holy) to my blog on these two days which was representative of music that both of these women would have enjoyed.

Thanks for your comments, Dru, and for introducing me to your blog!
