IMG_9844bThe owls that Aunt Jack made are still hanging in there, a bit worse for wear, but they reappear each Christmas, and find a safe spot deep within the branches of our tree.  These are an example of decorations older than I am!

Click here for previous discussions of the owls.

Summer 1964

Helen and Clark’s yard was always a marvel.  Here they are with the dahlias.



That looks like Helen, Jack and Reba picking flowers:


Aunt Jack’s house, on South Main, in Warrenton.  The house was built by her sister Lulu (Aunt Lu) and Gavin Catto.  Aunt Jack was Leona Wible.  This is what the house looked like in 1999.

These pictures below were taken in 2012.  Obviously someone was fixing it up.  The sun porch is now closed off.

You can understand from these pictures why I will miss that porch! I don’t remember the inside of the house.

Summer of 1960 picnic near Saddle Mountain.  Helen, Aunt Jack, Reba, Marie and Clark.

img109 img105 img110That’s an almost 2 year old me getting decorated by Carolyn!  Aunt Jack looking bemused.  It’s probably too soon for Mom to know she’s pregnant with Mark.

img104 img103 img102I’ll let someone else fill in all the names of the relatives! Is that Kathy with Clark?  Marie, Lina and Will, I suspect.  I’d be guessing with the rest.

Aunt Jack at her house.  There’s one of the owls hanging from the light, just like the owls most of us grew up with hiding in our Christmas trees.  The needlepoint picture is very similar to one I have (hanging in the bathroom).


Here’s Reba helping her with some project!  And a sock monkey on the shelf.
