So I was going through some of my grandmother’s pictures and found a few of me as a child. This was a good reminder to me that not all history is from other generations. It’s good to take a look at your own history.
All pictures taken at the home of Grandma and Grandpa Davis [Spud and Marian (Bohnsack) Davis] in Scales Mound, Illinois. My cousin Dan Davis bought the farm from them in the late 1990s/early 2000s. Last year, he tore down the old homestead to build a new house. The brick is being recycled.
I think my favorite pictures are:
- the one of me as a baby and my hair is sticking out as if I’ve been electrocuted.
- the pictures of me with cats. I’m pretty sure I’m torturing the poor devils with my love and affection.
