Still no progress on the Jennings/Lander watch on the right. The other two were easily dated, as both the Illinois and Elgin watch companies have websites with manufacturing dates listed by serial numbers. Watch #3 is much older than the first two.
As I make calls and network to put this latest family history-mystery behind me, I am discovering - both directly and indirectly - the difference between genuine relationships and those of convenience.
Anyway...lots to do this weekend. Here are a few pics from life as we know it in our family.
My youngest daughter was at the Grand Canyon this week.
Another "safe" location for a photo...
Digging through the boxes of family archives, found these gems.
Above: My sister and I in ~1959.
Below: ~20 years later.
Below: On my maternal grandfather's knee in ~1955.
Below: My paternal great-grandmother, Sarah Maude Stewart, circa 1897.
Some of the many visitors to our backyard SeedFest.
The hospital bed & wheelchair are GONE!
And finally...it's time for a haircut.
Have a good weekend.
