  1. What a wonderful sepia photograph! And two great beards.

  2. I browsed through several of your posts - what interesting family history. The mourning photo of your 2nd great-grandfather and his two tiny girls is sad and beautiful at the same time.

  3. I look at them, and then I look at the photo of you on the sidebar, and I can just imagine how they would have loved to know about your life - and how fascinating it would have been for them.

  4. ah, to grow such a beard!!
    i've been growing my goatee for a couple of years but keep on trimming it here and there. looks like i'll never have the patience to grow it to the desire lenght. man, that sounded just so girlish!!!...
