A Get Well Wish for Steve

How I wish these days didn't come - illness is for someone else, but not for dearly loved ones. Today's wish for Steve is for a speedy recovery, lots of rest, and sunshine .
These photos of days long ago hold wonderful memories; ok, not of the time the photos were taken, but of the little boy who always had a twinkle in his eye, and who always seemed to enjoy a new adventure - and who grew up to still have that twinkle in his eye and to believe that anything is possible.
May your positive outlook carry you through to renewed good health and strength. Wish I had some comic books to send your way. I love you, brother dear.

CROW BAIT.  Needs no further expaination.
OLD BIIDDIES.  Likewise tells it's own story.
LOBLOLLY. A combination of LOB, a bubbling mass of porridge and LOLLY, a British word for soup.  A southern term for a mud hole.
RUPPER BAIT.  Or was it ripper bait? a term for fish bait.

John and Anna Mach Photos

These 2 pictures have been posted previously and separately.  After spending the evening on the phone with Shannon and comparing these two photos, we are convinced the lady is one and the same, just at different stages of life.  We are also convined that thebottom photo is John and Anna due to the clue left by Eva.  "your Grandmother and Grandfather......died in 1893"  which is the same time frame of the passing of John and Anna.  Hello, Grandma Anna!  And Grandpa John!

The storm was supposed to pass us by and we got 25 inches total. Today it was supposed to snow and we got that nasty ole sunshine.
