On July 1, 1942, I celebrated my 3rd birthday. This is just past six months later. This is the first photo that I am aware of with Nancy and I in the same photo.

Photo taken at club, at Margaret Brannan’s.

My comments:

A few days after this, the temperature is 15 below zero for a few days. This was Iowa, after all…

Additional late January notes:

Jack Bowman was preparing to join the Navy.
Mom notes getting 'new ration books' on a shopping trip in town.

Families are Forever! ;-)
