There's a photo in my mother's album of my paternal Grandmother, Veronica Greig sipping a cup of coffee.In 1992, my family moved to a new house in Mandeville, Louisiana.
Mamaw and Pawaw came to visit us very soon after we moved. Mom made sure the house was spotless. My brothers and I were more or less happy because we liked our new neighborhood. And we had a new dog - Maggie.
I must have been in the Sixth or Seventh grade.
|Veronica Greig Roselli is my paternal grandmother - from whence I get my name, "Greig"!
Mamaw was very sweet. Pawpaw wasn't so nice. He was gruff and vindictive. I'm not sure why - probably a fight between my father and Papaw - but I don't think my grandparents ever visited us again in our house on Live Oak after the day this picture was taken.
