97: Email describing the photo "The girl holding the sign "Horsey Keep Your Tail Up" is Doris Berry. She was a friend of my sister, Sis, (or, Katy) who visited us on the farm. I think the year was around 1940, maybe some of you can pinpoint the time better. I'm backed up to Doris on the wagon. My sisters, Norma and Anna [Grandma Tolla to Dhea] are the 2 glamour gals in the forefront. Behind them is a neighbor boy, Carl Paulus, who spent much time at our house. My brother, Johnny is driving the horse and brother Jim is beside him. Sis took the picture (with her Brownie box camera) and many, many more of our old times together. She decorated the old wagon, "I'm the Belle of the Nineties" for our buggy ride that day. But really, our old barn, in the background, is the reason Norma found this picture and I blew it up. At the May Reunion, Linda asked me what the old barn looked like (before it burned down in 1946), so, here we have a view of the east side of the barn. You can see the old cement watering trough in the corner near the calf coming out the door. On the right of the picture is the old corn crib with the Butter-nut tree behind it. When the barn was burning, the firemen pushed it over so as to save the corn in it."
