Mamaws and Papaws

These two are for Joseph and Idella, my mother's parents :
 
Sayings
Funny, southern
Attentive, inquiring, divulging
"Shut your mouth wide open!"
Mamaw
 
Vegetables
John Deere
Planting, fertilizing, watering
Working, filling the freezer
Papaw
 
These two are for Emmett and Lurlene, my father's parents :
 
Biscuits
Mouth watering
Cooking, cleaning, crocheting
Praying, loving family, soaps
Mamaw
 
Old Spice
Shaving cup
Whipping fragrant foam
Clean shaven,smiling, bald
Papaw
