Grandparents Day

Today is Grandparents Day, celebrated in the United States since 1978. It is a day on which we remember our grandparents, and so it is fitting that the forget-me-not is the official flower of the event. My maternal grandparents were Eula Powell Isenhour and Harvey Isenhour of Hickory, North Carolina, and my paternal grandparents were Willie J. Spencer Ogle and William Ellis Ogle of Winchester, Tennessee. Grandmother and Granddaddy Ogle were known as Bill and Ellis, respectively.

Sarah's grandparents are, of course, my parents, Wanette Bolen and Phillip Ogle, and Sherry's parents, Sheridan Hester and John Hester, and Papa John's wife, Jan Hester. Happy Grandparents Day!
