Family In Mississippi

Dick and I traveled about while we were in Mississippi, seeing relatives and historic sites.

Here is a general store in Philadelphia, Mississippi, that is still in business. My brother, his wife, Dick, and I visited it and ended up buying several things.

Here I am with my two sisters, Sarah and Iva.

Back in 1957, my siblings and cousins went swimming at a nearby lake. Afterward we had a picnic. Here I am with my cousin, David Sansing, eating watermelon.

Fifty-two years later at our Sansing Family reunion, my cousin David Sansing and I re-inact our side-by-side watermelon eating picture.

Since I've just shown you an old photograph of me, here is another one. It's my senior class portrait that appeared in our high school annual.

Visit with a Transformer

When we were in Philadelphia, Mississippi, we visited a Choctaw Indian Fair. There were cultural displays, food, crafts, and dances. We did not anticipate meeting up with a transformer.

Here I am talking with the transformer. It was nice but had a strange sounding voice.

My sister-in-law, Marilyn, came over to see the transformer, too. When it looked up, it noticed Dick taking our picture. The transformer told Dick that he had better treat us properly or it would teach Dick a lesson!
