Our ancestors were as tough as nails - and if you had parents from "the greatest generation" you know this! So this photo made me laugh. Doesn't Cora Bell look like she's saying "Get away from me, corona virus, no place for you here!"?

They were my parents. They didn't take any c*** and I never gave them any. Greatest generation ever. 🙂❤

Actually it looks like she's about to kill a snake. But yes, people were tough as nails in those days. They had to be, or they didn't survive.

Back then, everyone, including women worked hard. Today all these young girls do is get ther nails and hair weaves done.

Well, that generation said they wanted their kids & grandkids to have it better than they did. So, I guess they succeeded.

My great-grandparents were that generation. I wouldn't be the same without the salt of the earth that they were.

Sometimes if given too many choices it makes you weak, who wouldn’t choose the gas powered mower over a push mover

My grandparents on my dad's side were share croppers in the Arkansas delta in the depression. My Mom was in France and suffered during WW2. THey had Nazi soldiers staying in their house.

They were tough. Check out pioneer cemeteries. Whole families died within days of each other during epidemics. mass graves in some places because of the overwhelming number of dead. The survivors did not whine about what they did during the epidemics or the depression . At least not the ones i talked to and that was a lot My grandmother owned a nursing home and I got to play there a lot and listen to the stories and it was all about survival and pride at how they did it.

Born in 1868, during the administration of Andrew Johnson, Lincoln's Vice President. Died just after Pearl Harbor in 1941, FDR's 3rd administration. She witnessed some amazing changes!

I did not scroll down all the way. So, at first I thought this person to be a man. Guess you're right, on your "Tough as Nails" comment, AncientFaces.
