VISITING GRANNIE AND GRANDAD 1034
Visiting Grannie and Granddad is great especially when they are Sam and Rosetta Rainey in 1948. They let you do what you want and looking at young Samuel's knees he has been enjoying himself! His sister Margaret McNeice is on the left thinks he's great for a brother, while his other sister Elizabeth McNeice thinks boys are not ' Sugar and Spice and all things Nice' like girls are. On the windowsill you can see the old bug sprayer, the way it worked was that you filled up the round part at the top with insecticide, then you held the long section which worked like at bicycle pump and you could then spray your plants to protect them.
