The Old, The New, The Poignant Happy Dance

Copyright 2014, CABS for Reflections From the Fence

My mother recently shared a small pile of old photos.  There are several real jewels in this little pile of memories and family.  Some I had prior copies, like this one - -

Old, cropped. No doubt fussed with a bit electronically.  In sad shape.

New (no cropping, enhancement and a bit of removal of white spots.)

Photo of my great grandfather, David Halterman; my brother, Donald Eugene Bowen II and, of course, Moi.

We are carrying bags of walnuts.

Family history and documentation has poignant moments, this is one.

Family history and documentation also has moments of pure joy, when we do the "happy dance", this is one.

Photo taken around 1960.

Love this, and am so glad there was another copy. What a nice memory, and with your brother is extra special.
