Yesterday I was looking through a cardboard box of old letters, postcards etc I found this old picture I had for my train ticket when I went by train to school to Borgå. See . . I have always been a bit chubby. Heh-heh.
The reason for asking hubby to bring the box is I had just recalled I had received some letters from my biological grandmother sometimes in the beginning of the 60’s. I could remember her last name but was not quite sure about the first name. Though it was Elsa. Hubby said, my goodness you really are mixing things up now a days ! Don’t you remember my grandmother’s name was Elsa ! Well, ok probably I thought . . . it’s me mixing up things. The fact is I have noticed my memory’s not as good as it used to be. Anyway, I was happy to find the letters. Had received just four in the end of 1960 and beginning of 1961. A n d y e s . . . I was right . . . her name was Elsa ! Pretty funny eh . . . hubby’s and my grandmothers both were named Elsa. In those days I thought she was very old but I now think she might have been my age. I hope to be able to find out more about her and the “family”.
