Grandpa Days

Arkansas City Kansas

I recently visited my cousin in central Oklahoma over the weekend. While I was there she gave me this old photo. This is a photo of my Grandpa Smith who worked for a company in Arkansas City, Kansas.  I never met him and this is the only photo I have ever even seen of him.  Dad never knew him very well since he died when he was only 5 years old.  

I wonder what he would have been like?  I wonder what he would have told me about life and the things that are really important?  I am sure I would have learned a few things from him about how it was in his day.  I know things have certainly changed since his time.  


How about you?  Do you have any favorite stories of your own grandpa that you might want to share here.  I wish I had some to tell about my Grandpa Smith but I never knew him… 



  1. We both have the same experience. I was not lucky enough to be able to see my grandpa. He was long gone before I arrived in this world. I wish to have met him before he left.

  2. One of my grandfathers died before I was born, but the other lived to be 96 and I got to know him well. Grandparents can be wonderful pals.

    This is why it’s important to record what you do know, and also to record your own life so your descendants will know you! Thanks for following my blog! Blessings!

    Sadly, both of my grandpa’s were gone by the time I was about 9-10 years old. I don’t remember much…
