This was our Christmas card one year. The big black Holstein/Brown Swiss cow was the last milk cow I had on the place. I raised her from a baby.
That's me and grandson Arick on a roller coaster at World's of Fun.
On the back of this picture it says, "Grandad Allen standing up... brothers". Since it was written by my Aunt Ruth and she calls him grand-dad, I would assume that's my great-grandfather... my dad's grandpa. This is my mom with grandson Arick, who is 23 years old now. Judging by the box in the foreground, I think this is when he and his mom were getting ready to go to Germany to join my son. This is my dad's first wife, my sister's mother, as a child. She died giving birth to my brother. I don't know what I'm doing with this, and there's no name on the back. But due to the baby's resemblance to my grandson Arick (see above) and the date written on it, I think it's my ex-daughter-in-law. Arick's mom.
This is my son, Jim; I thought it was right out of basic training, but he commented: "That would have to have been after Germany because the white looking cord is a German Marksmanship medal, and the red and green one was a unit award from 3rd Infantry in Germany. I'm guessing that was when I came back because we had to wear the dress uniform to travel back then."
