Mamaws and Papaws

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