Day 1559: Thank Goodness for old photos!

"Aunt Martha at 18", photo, collage & digital

You say "November 1st", I say "Aunt Martha."
That's just how my mind works.
I love this picture of my Mom's second oldest sister, 
high school graduate, Martha.


And, this picture of three of the family's four teachers.

Aunt Martha, Aunt Pauline & Aunt Fern

Originally ten children grew up on the Beatty farm.

Aunt Martha was a master teacher her whole life, 
and retired & married Uncle Jewell.

Aunt Martha was an artist & a great lady, 
with a wonderful sense of humor.
One of the very best, ever.  
I miss her so.

Happy Birthday Aunt Martha!
