Here’s my mother wearing a maternity smock, so another baby is on the way. Her children (left to right) are Susan, Cindy, Ginger and Owen. The soon-to-arrive child is Karen.
To the right is her mother-in-law, Cora (Joy) Martin. The photo shows them in Reading, Kansas, where Cora and Ren lived before they retired to Emporia. I heard that the Reading house became a cafe, but suffered so much damage in the 2011 tornado that it required demolition.
I have no idea why I’m wearing a stocking cap on what is obviously a spring day.
