I really do love this picture of Paul’s grandmother (my children’s great-grandmother) holding his dad as a babe.


It triggers the memory of stories told of how she had already raised a daughter when a large “tumor” turned out to be baby Frank Leslie Gustaf Carlson, all 13 pounds of him! Imagine her surprise!


But as much as I love the picture, it probably won’t end up on any of our walls. Still, the frame seemed to be the perfect size and color for one of artist son-in-law John Williams‘s etching.



It probably won’t be mistaken for a professional framing job, but who’s going to see it besides you?
