My Dad and his Father's Watch by 


In our kitchen, an old oaken shuffle-board, handmade by Grandpa, is hanging on the wall.
This shuffle-board is so old that it no longer can be used to play the game.
So, what to do with it? We have hung the shuffle-board on the wall with family photos of four generations in it.

On this image my father in his early twenties and the watch, that his father got on his 21st birthday in 1920 from his father. The watch is now mine but doesn’t work anymore and is also to be seen on the shuffle-board.

Dedicated to my father – the 27th of April he would have become 90 years of age.

WELCOME!
Thank you for making the effort to take a look at my photos. Your visit is very much appreciated!
Photography is my passion since my youth and I never go out without my camera.
I found red-bubble in Spring 2009 and I’m glad I did. It’s a very inspiring and fascinating place to be, in more ways than one.
A heartfelt thanks to you all for the many kind words and wonderful compliments you gave me. I look forward viewing your world and sharing mine.
Have a wonderful day! Take care!

    Very nice combination of your father’s portrait and your grandfather’s watch.
    Your father looked familiar to me…I know why..he is only 19 days younger than me!

    Erg mooi gedaan Hans! Ik vind de sjoelbak aan de muur ook een gouden vondst trouwens, ziet er erg leuk uit!

  • Dank je! Zo doet hij goed dienst. Maar eens wat foto’s van de vijfde generatie in B&W afdrukken en er bij hangen voor de zesde zich aan dient…. (^_^)
    Groeten en fijne dag verder!

    Perfect re-use of your old shuffleboard, Hans, what a great way to present your family history! :-))) … I like also that you’ve kept the shuffles :-D … Mum’s brother had one of these boards – I remember playing with it as a very young kid :-)

  • Hi Ell, when I was young I played it very often as well. At weekends we often played tournaments with friends and cousins!
    Cheers!
    Hans.
