Speaking of pictures, here is another old one. This time it's my grandparents with five of their six grandchildren. Jo, Bud and I are on the bench with them, and my older cousins from California, Bob and Ken, stand behind. The only one missing is the little fellow in the baby buggy in a preceding picture. Probably a Sunday afternoon - folks really used to dress up. Notice the rocks in the righthand corner of the picture. My grandfather had two rock fish ponds along that walk - and also a big v-shaped raised rock garden on the other side of the back yard. I remember their yard vividly - it was like a second home to me at their house. I probably mentioned in a post earlier that I grew up with an outhouse (makes you tough) and no telephone. How I loved taking a bath in Grandma's old clawfoot tub when I visited there - but she used Kirk's Hardwater Castile Soap and it made me itch!! Memories! And an added note, today my sister would have been 78 years old. See you next week!
