Special Picture # 198 – Lad and Marian’s Twins – Fall of 1947


This picture of me and my twin brother, Doug, appears to have been taken in the fall of 1947. At that time we would have been about 16 months old. We were Lad and Marian’s first attempt to become parents and at this time, my younger brother, Greg, would have been about 3 or 4 months old.

      Arla – Thank you. I have a bunch (100’s) of my Dad’s slides, even some of you at an early age ! I’ll send you any pictures of you as I scan them. :)

      Arla – Did you notice the harness on me, but not on Doug? I just can’t imagine why !!!! (sarcastically) I was always the more ambitious one – I guess that’s why I survived for 24 minutes in the womb after my brother was born and Mom was taken out of the delivery room. I only weighed a little over 4 lbs. but that was my first test of survival.

    How fun! Was this the first time you’d seen this picture?

      Mrs. P. – Actually, no. This is one of hundreds of my fathers slides. They are all on my computer but many of then are pictures from a time after the letters end and will not be a part of my blog. I was printing out one picture of Dan’s wife and me when I was about a year old. I wanted to send it to her with a 91 1/2 Birthday card. I ended up printing over 100 pictures.
      The odd thing is that I can look at them on my computer, but I can’t copy them to an email or my blog. I have to print them and then scam them to be able to use them anywhere else. So I started printing and just kept going. Lad loved to take pictures and there are about a dozen of both of us taken on this day.
      I only printed 3, but I will be sharing quite a few of these pictures on the weekends..
      My children haven’t seen childhood pictures of me because the pictures were all slides my Dad had in California. I printed a lot of them to show my daughters.
      I’m glad you liked it.

        I know people don’t always like to collect pictures of themselves but this is a marvelous collection of the next generation…no pun intended. Perhaps your project will inspire others to continue the family history/story…at least in photos. They say a picture is worth a thousand words.

          Mrs. P. – That is one of the goals I set at the very beginning of thes Blog. I want those who read it to realize that once the older generation passes on, their stories are lost forever, unless someone writes them down. Then they will continue to inspire others to record their life stories for their children, grandchildren and all those to come. :)

            I’m with you on this. I did try to get as much info from my dad before he passed but since then I have had a few of those, “I should have asked him about ___” moments. I was so interested in his early life before being married, I failed to ask his viewpoint as a father raising three girls o his own.
