I don't even know where to begin with this photo except to say that it had to be on a 4-H tour sometime back in the early 1960s.
The other for sure is that it validates my oft-stated claims in books that Marianne was, indeed, a klutz and maybe lacking a little self-esteem. Can ya blame her?
After all, she's stuck between two queens here---Lana Sommerfeld Hanson was a Miss Sandpoint, and I'm thinking Susie Baldwin may have been among the Schweitzer Royalty at one time. Maybe even Nancy Patton (extreme right) too.
Let's just say I never made royalty and probably never will.
Now, let's go back to the left. I believe the little squirt is Connie Roberson standing next to her brother Charlie. They're Lana's nieces and nephews.
Moving on, we have Kathleen Brackney whose dad Tom ran the University of Idaho Experiment Station, now home to cross country skiing and a haunted forest. Next to Lana is Louise Holzemer, who still rides horses in parades.
Her dad Pete worked with my dad Harold for the city water department.
I'm trying to think of where this photo was taken. Looks like Best's dairy but very well could be somewhere else.
Anyway, we were a photogenic lot, to say the least.
|All I'm gonna say about this one is, "Betcha can't guess who!"|
|Jean Martin, I think this one's for you. Is this a decent photo of Traveler, your first horse. I'm thinking it is.|
|I have no idea who "Long Legs" is, but he sure is a tall drink of water, as my dad would say. Legs longer than a horse. Amazing.|
