Two pictures with the only connection being that they were taken while we lived in Ft. Madison. This first one was most definitely taken at Christmas time, since I normally didn't have little dabs of cotton snow and glitzy window pane separations in the front window. Our little neighbor girls, Melinda and Jan, must have each found a new bike under their tree from Santa. Sherry is looking so cute in her plaid dress and saddle shoes and is holding a pretty little doll that she must have found from Santa. In fact, I think it must be the little Betsy McCall that is still around someplace. It was so darling and had some very cute clothes. Bill is all smiles as he has pulled his pistols out of the holster. Looks like they are tied around his leg, too. Cowboys need guns if they are going to fight Indians. Cops and Robbers was another game kids played - probably pretty tame in comparison to some of the video games nowadays.
