Wistful Wednesday : Far Guys Parents Through the Years

Marvin and Evelyn Unknown Year Far Guys parents..Marvin and Evelyn.  This may have been taken the winter before they were marred ..or the winter after.  I believe the car is an Overland but I am not sure of the year.  Far Guys Dad always did like dogs ..his hand is reaching down to stop the two dogs from scuffling or jumping up on him.  I wish I knew where this photo was taken..I will guess that since Evelyn is not wearing a coat that it was taken at her home place. M, E oct 1940 Here is the happy couple on October 26, 1940. I believe that this is their wedding photo. Evelyn kept a dark velvety dress in her cedar chest for years. I wonder what happened to it?  Perhaps Far Guy’s sister has it.

M and E 30 Anniv, 1970

This is their 30th Anniversary in 1970.  This swanky lamp hung in their living room for years and then in their apartment. It was a anniversary gift from Far Guy and his sister.  It now hangs in our daughter Jennifer's new old house in Fisher, Minnesota.

Marvin and Evelyns 50th Anniversary They celebrated their Fiftieth wedding Anniversary in 1990, and would spend almost another four years together before Marvin would leave her all alone.

M and E 1994  Summer of 1994.

This was taken at our resort sometime during June or July of 1994..It is one of the last photos that I have of them together. That was sixteen years ago..hardly seems like that long ago..but time marches on:)
