Gramma Golden And Her Family
when i found this cute picture of gramma golden holding on to this horse, i thought i had found a real treasure..i am not sure who the fellow in the carriage is but he looks pretty dapper!
this smiling gentleman sitting on the fence, i believe is one of gramma golden's brothers..i will have to ask dad golden which..one thing for certain that i DO know is that it is not his uncle lou. anytime dad golden has mentioned uncle lou, it seems that he was a grouchy old character that ..one time he was so mad at dad golden..uncle lou had hidden most of the meat under a whole pile of potatoes on his dinner plate and everyone wondered where all the pork chops were...dad golden, rushing in late to the dinner table, accidentally got his elbow into uncle lou's loaded plate. the mashed potatoes slid around and pork chops were flying all over the place!..uncle lou saw red and i am not sure but what dad golden got a real slapping for THAT...i
uncle lou had been very selfish and i think it looked good on him that he had been caught..hahahaha!
this nice elderly gent could be gramma golden's dad..i am not sure. i really like his hat..he is dressed really modern..that style of suit has come back!
gramma golden and her brothers were brought up on a farm..outside of niagara on the lake...southern ontario has many apple, peach, pear, cherry orchards and many farms grow grapes.
in this family picture, it really looks like gramma golden loves cats.
i will have to ask dad golden which in here is his gramma and grampa..that man trying to hide his shadow could very well be great uncle lou..who knows?
when elisabeth cain married issac golden, they moved their family to st catharines and this is where dad golden completed his education..he went to this school.
in the upper corner, you can see a school picture of my dad..what a cute kid he was!
gramma golden once told me that dad golden used to work delivering groceries which he would deliver by bike..gramma said that all the money that he earned, he gave to her to buy food for the family..dad golden had twelve brothers and sisters.
now isn't this one handsome fellow that is growing up fast so that he could meet mom golden one fine day?...
