My Great Grandmother Salyers and her brother Jimmy

The only thing I ever heard my Granny say when she looked at this picture (and I heard her say it many times) is...

"Mommy had such a hard life. Her Mommy tried to smother her with a pillow when she was little. That is her brother, Jimmy, beside her."

I can't imagine what would go through somebody's head to try to smother something that looks so precious as these kids. Of course, I have always said, "I can't be the only sane one in my family!"

Sometimes it sounds as if you are the only sane one.
