Grandpa Whitey and the mower
Not a great picture, I realize, but it goes along with my recent post about family history. This is my Grandpa Whitey. (Morgan Leon Dalton) He got the nickname Whitey because when he was young his hair was so dark. On formal occasions he went by the name Leon, and not Morgan because his father was also Morgan. Anyhoooo...this picture was probably taken around 1980 to 1985. If you have a better guess (or the original photo) let me know. I think Grandpa mowed the lawn about 3 times a week--his own & and the park next door. I think when the mower lines faded is when he decided it was time to mow again. I wish the picture showed more of the yard because it was always so beautiful.
