Forty-Five Years Ago Today in Colorado.....
....I got one of the best sisters-in-law. My brother Ron married Ruth Anne Nicolaisen. And since we already had one Ruth Lynam (our mother) in the family, she was always known to us as Ruthie.
On a visit back to Iowa, July 18, 1968. I do believe that is Dad's old Model A setting out in the orchard just behind Ron's arm.
Mom had this photo labeled "Honeymoon Cottage". I remember Ruthie thinking it was great fun to have their picture taken in the outhouse.
No date on this one, though it is in with some 1969 photos. The way the car is packed, I'm wondering if that is when they moved back to Iowa from Colorado.
In addition to a great sister-in-law, in time I also got a couple wonderful nieces and an interesting nephew.
