Let me preface my post with: it wasn’t easy to get my grandpa to participate with my grandma in this video. He would have rather been working and “doesn’t like being interviewed”, but I am so thankful that he took the time to join my grandma to film this. I also made sure to film this after church, so they were dressed appropriately, as you will learn in the video… one of the only days they get dressed up for is Sunday church.
This past Sunday I decided to ask my Grandparents a series of questions about their lives. I thought this video would serve as a memory of the two of them for our family to cherish forever. Going through the questions and watching it back, I could have asked hundreds of more questions and realized how incredibly special it is to have them on video. To have the opportunity to ask them questions I would have never known about is truly a privilege.
Where did you work growing up? What do you do now?
What is one of your favorite moments about your childhood?
How did you two meet?
Describe to us the 60’s.
What tough times have you lived through in this world?
How much did it cost to get gas when you two got married?
Where did you both go to school?
What is your favorite color?
What is your favorite food?
What is your favorite alcoholic beverage? What is your favorite non-alcoholic beverage?
How long have you been married?
Who is your best friend?
What is your favorite hobby as an adult?
What was the best/most important day of your life and why?
What family member were you closest with growing up?
What was your favorite thing to do as a kid?
Where were you born?
How many siblings do you have and how far apart are they?
Did you date anyone else before getting married?
What is the most rewarding thing about living on the farm?
What has been the most challenging thing about living on the farm?
Who is your favorite daughter?
I am definitely not a video editor or interviewer, as you can tell by the video quality; but I want to say a major THANK YOU to my grandparents who endured through this with me. I know we will all look back one day on this and be thankful to have it.
