Ann And Judy
This photo was almost beyond redemption and was difficult to clean. This version is the best I could do. I might not have posted it except Uncle Norman's photo shoot would have been incomplete without it. Now Ann is strangling the poor cat and Judy is chewing on her elbow. Is Ann crying or laughing? I remember clearly the day Norman took these pictures, lining us up in the sugar beets by the back door. The year Uncle Norman and Aunt Cindy were there working with Dad on the farm was a great year for us kids. He was fun to be around, took us to Lovell and Powell to the movies, and worked with us in the beet fields and at haying time. It was the first and only time we ever were able to spend time with one of our uncles, and the time was over all too quickly. Penrose was really a quite lonely place to grow up, since there were no other children our age that we could play with and grow up with.
