One day, my mother walked into a convenience store in a nearby town.  There were old pictures decorating the walls, and one caught her attention.  She had never seen the picture before, but she told him that it looked like her dad.  He removed it from the wall and looked on the back.  It read:  1. Lyall Gray  2. Paul Smith  3. Charlie Walker  In North Dakota about 1916

Paul Smith was my mother’s father.  Lyall was his brother-in-law, and Charlie was his uncle.  They men were threshing~harvesting oats.  Today, it takes one person on a combine to harvest oats.

The convenience store owner was nice enough to make a copy of the picture for my mom.  Later when he sold his store, he gave her the original picture.

Linking this to Jenny Matlock’s Alphabe-Thursday for the letter T.
