I wonder if they were married? or brother and sister and I wonder why they were not photographed together?

Hanson..Ha! like looking for a needle in a haystack..although the name Meta is not too common is it?

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

  1. A very small needle in a large haystack.

    Meta has very nice legs. :)

    I suspect the two were alone - so they took each other's pictures.

  2. Meta is a German nickname for Margaret. Perhaps this is the family in the photo...note Margaret's father is German.

    Notice they have a live in nephew...Leo Bell and live in Detroit Lakes, Becker, Minnesota!

  3. Interesting pose Meta has. I wonder if she thought she was looking natural, as in admiring the grass or something.

  4. He looks to be in pain. Perhaps it could be those tight shoes that appear to be very tightly laced.
