Since my Dad comes from such a large family(he was number 10 of 14) I have lots of cousins.
When I look through the old photos every week for one to feature you never can tell which one will strike my fancy.
This week two of my cousins had birthdays and I just happened upon an old photo of them.
The littlest guy in front was 67 and his older sister was 75, they share the same birthday.
My Uncle Jalmer and Aunt Jenny had four children. The baseball hat cousin on the left is Chuckie ( we wood carve with him every week), Gerald (last week he was married for 50 years), Arthur the littlest one in the front and Evelyn the oldest. This photo was most likely taken in the spring of 1948 maybe 1949.
Another reason for featuring this photo is that Veteran’s Day is approaching. All three of these boys were in the Armed Forces.
Art stayed in the Armed Forces a lot longer than his brothers.
They all came back home, married and had families and are enjoying being grandparents.
So I have cousins that are veterans, it is who they are…honorable men that defended our country. Thanks guys! They are some of my bestest cousins:)
