Archive photo of the day: Grandpa Frank

Grandpa Frank by The Bacher Family
Grandpa Frank, a photo by The Bacher Family on Flickr.
I took this photo of Kelli's Grandpa Frank in April 1996, just after we got married but before we left for Florida. I don't remember the setting--it must have been Easter or somebody's birthday, because we were gathered in the back yard of Kelli's parents' house having cake, and Frank was expounding on something important. This has always been a favorite family photo because it captures so much of Grandpa's personality--that shrewd look in the eyes, the robust health despite his age (82 at this point on his way to 93), the old logger's style with suspenders and white undershirt, and the love of a good story.
