Thanks, Mishi! I've gone through some of the albums with my Grandpa. Once I get all of the photos scanned, I'm going to email them to my mom and aunt and see if they remember hearing any of the stories. About 20 years ago, my Grandpa wrote an autobiography. It's not extensive, but has some fun stories. Unfortunately, my Grandma has already passed away. She was fairly secretive about her growing up years - I think she had a pretty rough childhood - so we don't have any of her stories.
I feel the same way about my journaling sometimes, but I think the blah, blah, blah is better than nothing
