Mom gave it to me years ago. I have it in a double frame with their wedding picture on the bookshelves between the living room and dining room, so I see it all the time. I'll send it to you, in fact, I'll send them both to you.

I love your picture!!!
Were you in Illinois in that picture?
We lived in Elmhurst Illinois when I was little. Then we moved to Wheaton.

Can you share what town that photo was taken in?

No, that picture was taken in Findlay, Ohio. I've only lived in Illinois for about 2 1/2 years.

I was born and raised in Ohio, lived in KY 4 years, PA 2 years, back in OH 3 years, and now in IL. That's a lot of moving and doesn't include all the house moves in between.

That's a lot of the reason I decided to blog and why I called my blog what I did; I have friends in a lot of places and I long for all of them at one time or another. . .

I think that picture must've been taken around 1960. I turn 50 this month and I look to be around 5 years old.

Wheaton's not far from where I live now. My son has a friend who goes to Wheaton--what a beautiful campus! I think Wheaton is one of the most charming towns in this area.

I should've proof read that comment:

I turn 50 this month and I look to be around 5 years old in the picture.

I promise you I don't look five years old! I hope I don't look 50, though. . .
