I love old hands. They tell so much about a person. Your black and white is nice. :)

Thanks for your comments. This IS an amazing hand. My husband's great grandma is a true Rosie the Riveter. She worked as a sheet metal machinist fixing airplanes during WWII. She has faced discrimination since she was young from not being allowed to take Trigonometry since she was a girl to fighting for every raise or promotion even though her performance scores showed better than the men around her. She has raised 4 children has 28 grandchildren and more than 80 great grandchildren and she is still going strong. Yeah, inspiring is a great word for her.
