Something old

I was looking though some cupboards today, thinking about what to throw out.  I found some old photos that I had forgotten about.  They are of my grandparents.  Grandpa Gray (FM as we called him) was born Farquhar McAllister Gray in 1879.  He married my gran, Bertha Lehmann in 1900 and they had thirteen children.  Some children died of diptheria, two sons were killed in World War II.

My last aunt passed away in October this year at the ripe old age of 93.  She was living in an old age home in Aberdeen in the Karoo.

I live in Umhlanga, Kwa Zulu Natal, South Africa. Much of my schooling was done in the Eastern and Western Cape. After I matriculated from Rhenish Girls' High in Stellenbosch, I went to Grahamstown Teachers' Training College. Most of my teaching was done in Margate and Durban. My hobbies are reading, traveling and photography.
