Great photo! I am trying to figure out the hair! The dress is pretty cool and she looks like she has her hands full for sure!

On another note, I tagged you on my blog! ;-) You can see it here

Thank you Msteri,
Isn't her hair interesting? At first I thought it might have been braided which I highly doubt! It must have been really tight bobby-pin curls. My mother loved to put those pins in our hair at night and in the goodness we had curls! Then of course there was "dippity do" to hold it down. Those were the days (the 1960's)!

Greetings! This is my first visit to your blog. I have enjoyed reading some of your posts, and looking at the terrific photos of your dogs and, of course, your ancestors.

The Family

The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together. ~Erma Bombeck

Genealogy Pox, author unknown


SYMPTOMS: Continual complaint as to need for names, dates and places. Patient has a blank expressions, sometimes deaf to spouse and children. Has no taste for work of any kind, except feverishly looking through records at libraries and courthouses.
Has a compulsion to write letters. Swears at mailman when he doesn't leave mail. Frequents strange places such as cemeteries, ruins, and remote desolate country areas. Makes secret night calls and hides phone bills from spouse. Mumbles to self. Has strange, faraway look in eyes.


TREATMENT: Medication is useless. This disease is not fatal, but gets progressively worse. Patient should attend genealogy workshops, subscribe to genealogical magazines and be given a quiet corner in the house where he/she can be alone.

REMARKS: The unusual nature of this disease is that the sicker the patient gets, the more he or she enjoys it!
