Christmas at Grandma and Grandpa's House - Retro 1950's

Just LOOK at the tinsel on this tree ... now I see where my mom got her fascination for single strand decorations ... This is my Grandma and Grandpa Klotz ... my dad's parents.  I think I got my "spunk" from Grandma Ollie, as she was a force to be reckoned with and there were no "gray" areas ... it was either black or white ... right or wrong ... nothing in between.  She had a quiet strength and a loving embrace.  I have just a few vague memories of my Grandpa George, who past away when I was about 4.
