I found this picture after my grandma, Anna (Jackson) Shellabarger, passed away, so I never got to ask her about it. All I know is she is at work in San Diego, California at the Naval Air Station where worked as a supply clerk. And, she’s having a good time.
Why the silly hat? I am not sure. I can make out the word “years” on the front. It could be her birthday or maybe it is her retirement. Could be she met a “years worked” milestone.
Whatever the reason, it’s neat to see her smiling and having fun. My grandma could be quite opinionated, but she also had the gift of contagious laughter. Life doesn’t always have to be serious even at work.
