Friday Family Fotos!

Here is my good lookin husband when he was young and hot!  He must have been about a Jr. in high school here. so about 1961.  He said this was at the MN Jr. Livestock show at South St.Paul.   Love that flat top!



This next picture is in 1960 - (it was marked on the back).  Taken at MN Winter Show at Crookston.  His best friend Wayne  in the middle now lives at North Pole, Alaska.  We don't get to see him often, but when we do - it's a lot of laughs!  He was the one always getting into fights, and my nice guy husband, was the peace maker!    Some day we want to visit him and family in Alaska.
This was taken in the spring 1948, in Nebraska.  Their farm was near Ceresco, NE.  Hubby is the 3rd child, and he was 4 years old at that time.  His younger sister Kathy (age 2) didn't hold a pig, and still doesn't like them.  His older brother lives in Wisc. and older sister Jane lives in Minnesota, but winters a few months in Arizona (lucky girl). 

Looks like my husbands love for livestock started very young - and continues!  I'm going to Louisiana next week to spend a week at our daughters so I can babysit for Renee, and Steve can't come with because farrowing season started on Feb 1.  So he has to stay home and baby sit with his baby piggies coming now.

Oh The header picture is also of Steve when he was little! His pig rocker, which we're trying to find out if it's still around (possibly at Aunt Loretta's) and if we can get it back. I couldn't get any printing up there in the header to look right without covering up the photo.

Cool photos, you know I actually remember him looking like that..flat top, white socks and penny loafers! I love the photo of the four oldest kids..even though Kathy isn't holding a little pig...it is a wonderfully expressive photo and tells a story!! Good job, I really enjoyed this look back at old photos:)

It is fun to look back at old photos. Reminds me of old photos of my hubby and his growing up years on the farm raising pigs. Long days, lots of work, but he loved it.
