ABC WEDNESDAY "I" is for 'irresistible'

Aren't these the sweetest ladies? Grandma Jelka (Yel-ka) and Grandma Rosa are the grandmothers of my daughter-in-law and her brother, the latter of whom was recently married, and this photo shows them wearing their little boutonnieres for that happy occasion. You might remember Grandma Jelka's hands from this photo.

See more I's at ABC WEDNESDAY.

I have an affinity for old ladies, especially dear, old smiling ones. Like them :) They look so sweet I might not be able to resist giving them a hug if they were my grandmas.
