Surely NOT a Wordless Wednesday

My Great-Great Aunt Nell & 11 of my cousins in some form or fashion. 1953. This is one of those pictures that my great-uncles sends out to his kids every day (!). When it’s our “branch” of the tree, he sends it to us, too. He hasn’t sent one in awhile and I realized he […]

My One & Only American Idol Recap
