My Siblings

Oh, the seventies! Here are my siblings and I posing for a picture. Me with the big hair and cigarette. I smoked for a long, long, long time but will soon reach my 18th anniversary of being a non smoker. It was a terrible habit, but I did enjoy smoking and back when I started there was nothing much negative about it. The main reason I quit - although knew it was not good at all - was there was no place to smoke anymore. So with the help of the patch, I was able to quit and I am so very glad I did. As for the big hair, I saw a cute caption to an old picture where the gal had a similar hair style and it was "The higher the hair, the closer to God".
Here are the kids - and my brother thinks he is one of them! Sherry and Bill, Bud, Mike (Bud and Dot's son) and Dan and Craig, my sister's boys. Oh, so many years ago.

  1. Well wasn't Sherry the rose between many thorns. Was she the only girl? How lucky was she to always have the watchful eye of so many boy cousins and one brother. Then if I am correct she had only girls. Isn't it funny how that seems to run in families like that. I grew up with a family that wanted a girl so very badly and had 5 boys. When the last was born he turned up a Robert, but in this tough family they always picked on him by calling him Roberta. Oh they did have great yard fights in the neighborhood that family of all boys. Dad would always come out of the house after a fashion and they would all just scatter like field mice. lol
