I mentioned I might not post due to a family reunion. We enjoyed spending time with my Grandpa and Grandma Hoover, their eleven children, all but four of their grandchildren, and many great grandchildren for about 250 people total. But I can’t resist sharing two unique photos that might not be common at every family gathering.
The twins in the family:
My nephew Tony was sick so his twin Zach is alone in the striped shirt. There are seven sets of great-grandchildren twins!
The “I had heart surgery as a baby” group:
Almost certainly these three would not have survived long without surgery, my niece Lucia being the most recent.
What a blessing!
(Sadly, no word on the train conductor. I do have a few other leads if I never hear back. One of my leads informed me that the mystery person is a conductor, not an engineer.)
