i took this photo about 6 years ago with a disposable camera. I didn’t think it was anything, just another picture of my friends, until my dear friend Kyle, said it was awesome.. yes, it took someone to say it was “awesome” to see the true potential. Whatever, its a weird photo, but it captured the moment.
Painter Grant Wood’s sister Nan and his dentist, Dr. Byron McKeeby, his models for “American Gothic”.

Siobhan found herself walking the steps up to the front steps of the Grantwood house, a bag of leftovers in hand for the family. It’d been her mother’s request, Kid’s mom was a huge fan of her cooking and well, so was Kid. And given he was leaving soon, she thought maybe giving him some comfort food would be enough thank you for what he’d done for her this last week. Sure, he’d annoyed her for a lot of it, but he’d also been there for her. So Siobhan pressed on the bell, waiting for an answer. @kingkidgrantwood
