The top picture is another picture from my very first roll of film. And the second one is priceless beyond any measure. Louise and I figured out this dress is the same one Louise wore in her famous first-day-of school photo. The posing by the poor lilac bush was intentional and I remember it clearly, but what else was there? And the first year or two Dad grew sugar beets right up to the back porch in an attempt to earn whatever extra pennies could be earned by doing so. We never knew how hard our parents struggled. But then we had cats.
