i *heart* my family: the greats

This is my paternal Great Grandfather (Everett) and his brother, my Great-Great Uncle, Tex.  Apparently these two were quite the characters — adding a bit of spice to life.  Of course I never knew them, but I love hearing stories about Everett’s “gumption” (a.k.a. stubbornness).  I also like that their baby photos could be used as props in a horror film.


  1. Great pictures! – wonderful! and your comment on their baby pictures cracked me up. (no, I am not going to write “laugh out loud.” I am rebelling against IM language and instead using old, dated phrases like “cracked me up.”)!
