I remember knowing that they lived a couple blocks from us in St Cloud and that when I was older, I'd be able to walk there...but then they moved to the other end of the earth. Would we ever see them again? Where exactly was Montana, anyway?
These pics were taken after that move. Uncle T was hired by a wheat farmer near Denton, Montana, w-a-a-a-y out on the prairie. There was a creek on the property, but there were also rattle snakes and probably bears and wolves. (We watched the Lone Ranger, after all). We visited once, and it was scary. We didn't see any varmints, but we might have.
We DID have matching pedal pusher outfits that mom made, and Uncle Tader gave us each a whole silver dollar--a huge amount of money. They didn't seem rich, but if he could just give away that much money.....wow.
(Marion was crying in this pic cuz her leg touched the red-hot tail pipe of the car. Poor lil kid!)
