This first picture is of my grandpa (my Mother's Dad) holding me. He was the one that worked as an engineer on the PRR. I just love and cherish this picture. He was a great man!! By the way, do you see the down-spout on the corner of the house that takes water from the roof gutters and stores it in a wooden rain barrel? I remember that one of the things they used rain water for was to wash their hair. They had multiple rain barrels. This great man lived until I was grown up and on my own.
OK, let's go back a little further in time. This next picture is of me getting a little sun. Since I see suspenders on the fellow in the background, I will assume it is my Grandpa who always wore suspenders.
Since both sets of my grandparents lived along the Allegheny River, (my Dad's parents lived in Foxburg and my Mom's parents, where these pictures were taken, lived in Phillipston) it would be good if I knew how to swim. So, this last picture is me practicing my swimming style:
