Kodak Moment #37

I got hundreds to thousands of photos through my life.  A lot of which would match up to stories here on Cowabunga Corner, but for one reason or another they are not chosen.  This does not mean that these photos are not worth sharing and do not hold stories of their own.  I would like to keep sharing what I can here on the site, so whenever I can I will share a photo and a story to go along with the photo.  If it’s a part of events that has been shared here, we will link back to the stories of the events themselves as well.  Hope everyone enjoys.  Today’s photo is my mom and grandparents in 1989.

This is my Grandparents anniversary in 1989.   My folks took them out to eat in Royal Oak.  I really love my Grandparents and wanted a good photo of them to post for today.  19 years ago today we lost Grandpa, though his memory lives on with us.  I miss him deeply and want to honor him every October 8th.  So here’s to my Grandfather for the awesome life that he lived and shared with our family.

The place they went to eat gave them tin foil swans and was located in Royal Oak, Michigan.  We’re not sure if it is still there.  My dad took this photo.

Ever go to a restaurant where you got a tin foil animal with your to go food wrapped inside?  If so where?  Please share memories, comments and questions below!

Please, allow me to start by saying that I love both this photo and the memory that coincides.  There's no doubt that your Grandparents thoroughly enjoyed themselves.  And, the smile on your Mom's face further confirms the night's enjoyment.  I wonder what restaurant it was and what kind of food that they served.  In any case, it must've been good!  The tin foil swan for their leftovers was a real cool touch too.  I've yet to go to a restaurant that actually does that.  When my family and I were on a cruise, the room service would always leave towels folded up into a different animals.  That's about as close as I got to anyone folding animals for me.  On the anniversary of his home going,  I know you honor your Grandpas legacy, he must be so proud of you and who you've become.
