Strolling to Chicago

         As you know, I am somewhat intrigued by distant connections so to be in Chicago with two of my brothers at the same time is a long shot.

        Remember that we were born and raised on an isolated farm. We went to the local village with horse and wagon in the summer and horse and sleigh in the winter. We didn't get very far from home until in our teen years. Things changed rapidly as new cars were purchased, good roads built and people had some extra money to use for travelling.

       Both of my brothers have done some travelling. They both drove from Saskatchewan to Chicago and loved the drive.

      So here are my brothers and their wives arriving at my daughter's wedding at Morton Arboretum in Chicago. It was a fun time.


  1. Nice picture, Red. They do look like nice people, but since your brothers are related to YOU, I am not surprised. :-)

  2. Now , DJan, that's a compliment that will wake me up this morning . Thanks. I do love my brothers even though I have been away from them since 1957 when I left after high school. I seer them at least once a year which isn't enough.

  3. Hey Red! Tell us more about the wedding..that Arboretum is wonderful.. and Congrats on the new son in law! I bet your brothers were happy to see you too:)

  4. I just might do a wedding post. I'll wait until I get a few pictures. Thanks for your interest.
