Big and Small.
Both of my first cousins are small here. They are about the same age, under 4 years old and you can see Gene is showing his cousin Jeanette that he can touch the top of her head
My great grandma Driver shows off her second family. The smallest is required to stand and the one boy in the middle is standing on the chair. I never thought of it before but I bet Grandma Driver was originally sitting in the chair and the kids were not cooperating. You can see grandma pointing to the camera telling the girl she is holding to look that way.
It is a complicated story but this is my great grandma Driver's second family. My grandfather Brown was in her first family of two boys. This second family are all half cousins of mine, twice removed. Those young kids in the photos all still live in the Osceola, Iowa area.
While looking for big and small photos I ran across this photo of me. It would fit the theme if I showed a 65 year old man next to it but that isn't going to happen. It is 1953 in the summer and we moved from this rented farm during the coming winter during a rain storm. The roads were dirt back then so we moved by tractor and wagon slipping and sliding on mud roads. The photo's intention was to show the watermelon juice running down by belly. I can see that I wasn't allowed to eat it in the house. I wonder if they kept me in a shed outside as to not to make a mess in the house when I eat.
