True Laughter

The year, 1950...the month is May...the smile is big...and the shirt says "Let's Hide".  It is a picture of my older brother as a young un', what a deal!

I came across this photograph last evening while looking through a group of family pictures.  It had never passed before my eyes, and I smiled as wide as Henry seemed to be smiling.  My older brother as a young child of one year of age.  Not many times do you get a chance to see your older brother in his life before you were born.  He certainly seems to have enjoyed his first year.

"Man that was a good one", he seems to be saying.  "Got another one to keep me laughing?"  It must have really been hard to keep those one year old kids laughing while you tried to get a good picture taken.

Well Henry, you got a good one taken here.  True laughter comes from within.


  1. I love it! My husband has the ability to get the kids laughing for photos, it is a special skill.

  2. This may be one of my all-time-favorite kid photos! How can you look at that face and NOT smile back?
    Jerry, I'm glad to have found your blog via GeneaBloggers. It'll be fun exploring your blog and learning, so keep 'em comin!

  3. Jerry, I just found your blog via Gini Webb's column at GeneaBloggers. Looking forward to taking a look around and seeing if your Jones lines cross any of those that married into my lines. Slim chance, I know, but fun checking!
