Family history

I posted this to my personal blog, and thought I'd share it here as well. This is a short film taken by my parents when my brother Bob and I were little kids. This is pre WWII.

And here are a couple family photos of us as kids too.

My mother was an Iowa farm girl who left the farm to go to college to become a teacher. She and my dad met when she was visiting a friend in Nevada, where my dad worked in a mine/mill. She left her career behind for marriage until we were older.

It's a great treat for me to see them so young and loving. And also great to see the animals that were cared for so tenderly until it was time to eat them. That's just the way it was.

Dad was the only one that liked the geese. While I didn't mind a little duck biting my finger, I did not like being chased or bit by a goose.
