Journaling:

 

Glen W Shay was what you’d call a character. (The W doesn’t stand for anything, by the way. It’s not an initial, there’s no period after it; it’s just Glen W -- period.) I

asked the family to tell me about this picture. Dad said it was before his time, and his own knowledge of the story is sketchy, because Grandpa was a little touchy about talking about it.

What he does know is that the motorcycle was a Harley Indian, top of the line back in the day. Owen thinks the picture was taken going down Main Street in Belle. Sometime later Glen was running an errand and hit a chuck hole or pop bottle over by Ray Oliver's blacksmith shop. He took a rough fall, peeled his face and ended up in the hospital. No one’s sure what became of the motorcycle.

 

The guy who owned Sly's grocery store, where Grandma was the bookkeeper, said to her, "You're not planning on marrying that crazy so and so, are you?" Ha!

What a neat LO! I like the stamped initials and the journaling is terrific. I especially like the torn paper with the patterned paper below.

Your photo is awesome. I love the heritage feel to your whole layout. The antique type for your font is perfect, and the papers and embellishments all work together to give it that aged feel.

Fantastic layout! The photo really captures the eye, but your journaling is what really makes this layout standout I think. I love how you embellished around the photo, it really makes the photo shine. Thanks for sharing this special memory with us!
