Full Circle 130

This Full Circle began with a comment by Sallysmom ,  “Could this be the Fred Bleese from Photo Number 1819?”  Well that Fred Bleese Photo went Full Circle 111 to Elizabeth….so I emailed her.

I emailed Elizabeth the names on the photos.

Elizabeth wrote:

Connie, those are some familiar names as well. Could you send them with the others? Thanks again for this service you do. Elizabeth

I mailed them off:

Thanks Connie, the photos arrived the other day. Elizabeth

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Oh, my. Isn't this wonderful? So many great pictures returned to loved ones.

  2. Well done!

    I love the "new" photos, too. No doubt they are graduation portraits and were sent to Aunts & Uncles.

  3. Oh my goodness!! A grand slam home run!

  4. That was quite a haul......good job.

  5. What a bonanza! I think Tired Teacher is right: someone's aunt and uncle must have lived in the Detroit Lakes vicinity. With all the photos you've posted over the years, it's a wonder you can keep track of all these names. Glad Sallysmom thought of that!
