Sketchy Thursdays - 1.6 - Grand Dad's Cookies.

Today I played with this sketch from Sketchy Thursdays.

Here is my take.
The sketch worked perfectly to tell the story of Grand Dad's Cookies. Since it is probably difficult to read here is the journaling in a nutshell. These are Granddad's cookies, they are called that b/c they were my Grandpa's fave. Recently my Grandma told me the story behind Grand Dad's Cookies and why they have no name. When they were courting during WWII my Grandma worked @ a bank. One of her co-workers had a brother overseas. She told Grandma about how she and her mom made these cookies for her brother and sent them to him. He always looked forward to getting them b/c they never arrived stale and they were always intact when they got to him, unlike cookies the other mothers sent their sons. My Grandma told Grandpa about them and he insisted she get the recipe and they have been his fave ever since. My Grandma never learned what they were called and that is why we call them Granddad's cookies.

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!!
