My First theme Day (My Corner)

June 1, 2008

Photo Shot at 10:53

I am so excited shooting this because This will be my First Theme Photo Here at City Daily Photo! This is a shot of our Local Shop. This is our Family Business. New General Lumber and Hardware was established early 1960's by My Chinese Grandpa Que Chua Le and My Filipino Grandma who's in the Photo above. This is the main reason why we live accordingly right now. By this business, My grandma has sent almost all of us her Grandchildren to school until College. They have 7 Children and roughly 20 Grand Children.

I have already featured the Facade of our Lumber and I have re-posted the photo below this entry, Our house is located on the second floor of the Building and a rooftop on the third plus a view deck on the Fourth. I'm really proud of My Grandma and Grandpa Because they really did a good job Establishing not just a big business like this but a Big Family like ours! They really are one of my role models!

By the way, links for the other participants for the Theme Day can be seen below the second photo! More power to Every Daily Photo Blog around the Globe!

Interestingly, I also grew up in a shop! And I also posted my family shop for today's theme day.

Happy Theme Day!

You're lolo and lola were really efficient to have established a store for the kids (support) and the neighborhood as well (supplies)!

Welcome to theme day! This is such a lovely and loving post! I love your home: the colors, the vibrant life all around it. It's amazing what grandparents do for their families, isn't it?

Chuck Pefley said...

Steve, you are lucky indeed to have such wonderful role models who have provided not only inspiration and direction, but also a livelihood for you to grow into. Frankly, I can't imagine anything more useful than a good hardware store. Lucky, lucky man!

And congratulations on your first theme day, as well as your recent 50th daily photo posting!

Dan said...

Thanks for your visit to my blog and your kind comments!

Beautiful pic today, I love the vivacious colors and the energy and enthusiasm that pours from your grandmother.

I hope you tell them how much you appreciate them and what they have done for you and your family. It is a wonderful family story and one that will shape yours and future generations.
