    Rock mentioned posting a thread of our pics at any age.

    Here are two of me. My baby pic and me last week.

    Hi Patti

    Well, weren't you a cutie! And still are. I can't decide if those are State
    Trooper glasses or movie star glasses. Very fetching.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks, Rock. The one of me now happens to be a good pic. Normally I look wretched.

    Have Gordon post some pics of you.

    Don't have any pics of me, Patti. I used to have some photo albums and school
    yearbooks. But I've moved about two dozen times. Every time I move I throw
    stuff away. Not much point in posting a current picture. I now look like a
    homeless guy. Frighten the horses and children.

    I used to be a blonde myself. The white blonde little kids in Minn frequently
    display. And then, typically, as I got older my hair got browner. And
    less of it. Nowadays I just rely on my inner beauty.

    There was an old pic of me around that I saw a few years back when I
    was looking for my passport. If I find it, I'll post it. Okee Dokee?

    Okee Dokee. I say that all the time myself.

    My blonde hair turned light brown, too, in my early twenties. Been dying it ever since. I have green eyes.

    I'm Irish and German, a tad English, and one part Cherokee.

    I'm the Irish that came down from Scotland, and were unwanted in Ireland. I'm thinking the Ulsters.

    My hubby is Swedish and German. Has green eyes.

    Did you see on the Fannie Flagg thread that I edited my post to add the amazing documentary that I like about the building of the Hoover Dam? Gonna watch it sometime tonight, it's on YouTube. I put the link to it on that thread.

    Hi Patti

    Yes, I read your post. I saw a documentary about Hoover Dam at Hoover Dam
    in 1968. That was when I was living in nearby Las Vegas. In the little
    town of Henderson, between Las Vegas and Hoover Dam I ran into a fellow
    from my hometown in Minnesota. How likely was that?

    I read Henderson is no longer tiny. Now the second largest city in
    Nevada. I remember when it had ten cent crap tables.

    Maybe some of our ancestors were acquainted. I have ancestors
    from Norway, Germany, England, Wales, Ireland, and Scotland. Have
    books about some of them. Know little about others. Some of the
    family show up in the history of the old West and in the story of
    the Lincoln Assassination.

    I hunted around for a picture to post. Found one in a big envelope full
    of old letters, unused post cards, and a few pictures. Am now working
    to find someone or someway to get it posted. Maybe Gordon's
    brother will know how.
