I admire your imaginative way to keep busy in a productive (usefull) way!
I would be pleased if you sent me the postcard. Sorry I have been so slow to reply to your interesting presentation. Plz find enclosed two $5’s to cover your incidentals.
My Dad was born in 1900 (Reuben F) I was born in 1930—My oldest son (Eric) was born in 1960 – Go figure!? I am Rueben F Jr. The boys in the photo are all brothers. I was acquainted with every uncle except Paul.
Thanks for the piece of history.
P.S. Jesus loves you!
I sent off the postcard with a note that said “Jesus loves you too!”
Thanks for stopping by.
Considering Rueben, Jr's age, I hope he has someone who would love to have this when he passes. Wonderful picture!ReplyDelete

Forget the mayhem. That was 29 years worth of pregnancy!Delete
I thought about that too...and cooking:)Delete
