Beautiful family .... Yours looked like ours ... I was born in 1958. Wow. Loved the motorcycles, cub scouting, travel, fishing camping, lots of holidays and family. I grew up in TEXAS. Again thanks.

Just loved your photos. You grew up much as I did, my Dad was a federal firefighter and a chief master sgt in the air force reserve. Looking at your "life" I am now going to start a photo album of my own. My mom has passed as all of the grandparents so I really have to get started as I am not getting any younger (53). Again, loved your pictures and hope all of your family are doing well.

Your family is an inspiration. This year my family started camping. I have a wonderful husband and 3 children (6 and 4 yr. old). We have been going to different parks and taking many pictures. My husband now has a canoe and we are trying to teach our kids fishing. Looking at the history of your family, is a great motivation to make camping a tradition for my family. God Bless you and your family.

I happened upon your site while searching for images of New Mexico road signs. This is a great testament to your family and I loved the pictures from the 50's. Thanks for making me smile!

I feel like I know your family. My dad was a pilot in the Army. My parents started off with a trailer and later moved into a house. We had more than one Charlie Brown Christmas tree. My parents lived at Mineral Wells, TX; I went to Carroll High in Ozark, Alabama. I’ve been to the beach in Panama City, FL. My father and husband both graduated from flight school and advanced aviator’s course at Ft. Rucker, AL. My son, Marco, was in Boy Scouts; he did that Pinewood Derby thing with his dad, Tom. Oh, and Marco was a swimmer. We spent some time in Alabama, but Texas feels like home.

My husband and son both graduated from West Point. Tom did the first Gulf War and now Marco is doing “Operation Iraqi Freedom.”

Yeah, I paint. I haven’t had a “studio” since Alabama, but that doesn’t matter since I haven’t felt like painting much. I don’t do shows. My paintings are too abstract and too weird for shows (beyond P.G.).

Oh, yes, and we are Catholic!

Unfortunately, our family didn’t have a happy ending. My parents got divorced when Dad came home from ‘Nam. Mom left. I was the oldest of 5; the youngest died in a car accident when she was 19. I helped to raise my siblings since my dad put me in charge of the house, finances, homework, discipline, shopping, gardening and cooking, etc., etc. Oh, yeah, and by the time I was 16, I was the bread winner of the family because my father either would not or could not hold down a full-time job. He kept quitting.

My mother is a controlling brat. (I’m being polite with that B word.) I don’t have a lot to do with her. My dad kicked me out of his life when I was 20 because he didn’t like my fiancé and wanted me to be his slave for life. I don’t have anything to do with him. We have some SERIOUS relationship issues in our family.

I’m very happy you are happy. Good-luck. God Bless.

We even have relatives in MN! (They belong on my husband’s side.)

My dad flew Chinooks and my husband flew Apaches. (Of course, they started out with a Bell helicopter just like your dad.) --- I had a bunny for a pet while dad was in ‘Nam.

Our vacation spot was Yosemite. --

Wow, what an awesome couple on the beach with the "Dive In" shirts and their "Yacht" waiting in the background! I especially like the cute blonde chick in the "Pilots do it better shirt"!!! What fun times your family has had over the past 50 years...
Congratulations on a life well lived!
