I got a message from my brother earlier tonight wondering if I had a picture of someone. This sent my mind wandering back to growing up in Ashland, Kansas and some of the people that were part of our congregation.
Here is a picture of the church building. I have many memories of mowing the lawn around this building, which is what I was getting ready to do when this picture was taken. If you look closely you can see the lawnmower on the far right.
Here I am with Alfred Park and George Vandeveer. I learned so much from these men. The planter that we are sitting on was part of the addition to the building. There was just enough bricks left for the planter.
I think my hair is just as bushy now as back then when this picture was taken. Of course, the shirt fits a bit tighter though.
I was looking for a picture like this when I wrote Family Friends VIII – Leland Vandeveer. You can read more about the Vandeveers in that post.
An interesting trip down memory lane tonight.
