One of the things I notice that my grandparents did was pose for sibling photos.

My sisters and I don't do that much. We probably should, if for no other reason than to continue family tradition.

From the background in the photo above, I can tell they were at St Joe Cemetery in Pope County, on Decoration Day.

I'm also pretty sure that a certain unnamed woman had no idea her best side was showing.
