Fearless Females - Promt #2

Post a photo of one of your female ancestors. Who is in the photo? When was it taken? Why did you select this photo?

Henriette Geertruida Lamboo - approximately end of the 1950's - beginning of the 1960's

This picture shows my grandmother Henriette Geertruida Lamboo doing a puzzle. It was one of her favorite pastimes and I fondly remember the times when I would 'help' when I was little. I can hardly remember a time when there wasn't a half-done puzzle on the dining room table at my grandmother's when I went there. I still have several of her puzzles and sometimes, when I miss her, I get one out and put it together. The picture might not be of the best quality, but it's one of my favorites nevertheless.

  1. It must have been fun to visit your grandmother; I've always thought that a "puzzle in progress" was one of the homiest touches. Unfortunately, we cannot keep a puzzle out because our cats think that it's their toy!
