This week my mom turns 79. Look at this sweet picture of her when she was little. She was her parents' first child and there are many, many pictures of her taken in Wheaton, Kansas. Studio photography must have been very popular in the early 1930s. Her family also took many snapshots. What mom will mention about this picture is her ringlets. The agony of having those combed is an unpleasant memory of her childhood. But aren't they so so cute.....Mom was named Lou Ellen, allegedly after Lou Gehrig, a favorite of her baseball-loving father.
