Snapshot, 1956: Play Ball

These are my parents in 1956, engaged to be married, both poly sci majors at Doane College in Crete, Nebraska, taking a break from studies.

My mom was 5’10”, and my dad was 6’2″. He played high school and college football, and she played softball from the time she could pick up a bat until 1958, when I was born. I inherited her gorilla arms and his chin dimple, but sadly not their athletic abilities nor their height.

We’ve been going through lots of old family photos, both sides of our family, many of which neither of us has ever seen before – so do stay tuned.

Bright blessings, CJ
