The photo is my son and myself. Now days you can get a photo made to look old like this one. This photo was taken when this was the new look.

Harry S Truman was president when I was born and world war II had ended. I grew up in a time when lunch was put in a brown paper bag and a sandwich was wrapped with wax paper.

Finding out about the states sure made a difference because now I can picture it in my mind. Thank you! Guess I forgot where they lived. I was also surprised that Eunice and Bill want a divorce. I know they were so uncommon back then I wonder if they actually went thru with it.
