Here are Sally, our friend Janice Howe, Peggy, and Katie (front row) smiling in the afternoon sun on our back porch in Bismarck. (Don't know where Tom is...maybe taking a nap--he'd be about two?) Peggy looks to be about 7 (the missing teeth are always a giveaway for 7-year-olds), so Sally would be 6, and Katie about 4. Janice lived down the road from our place, and sometimes she'd get off the school bus with the kids after school. They'd hang out together until I gave her a ride home. Other days, Sally and Peggy would get off the bus at Janice's and play. One time Sally came home wide-eyed after hearing the folks at Janice's talk about "Rimrock Rosie," the western ND version of Big Foot. Rimrock Rosie was reputed to live on the high ground east of town. Brrrrr!!! Janice's family always told amazing stories!!
Janice lives in South Dakota at Crow Creek, where she's planning her wedding next month. Best wishes, Janice! I'm so glad I found your photo after all these months of searching. I guess it really does pay to move to another dwelling, even though moving is a big pain! I hope your wedding day is as beautiful as you are.
