More...whether you asked for it or not!

I wanted to post some more pics of this Dover Family of mine so that next week I can post abt. the other side. This pic is of my grandad, "Ted" Dover and my grandma Cleo. They had just gotten married, his second and her third(explains there being no white worn) and had gone to the park. I love the pics I have from this day because they seem so happy, carefree and sort of like teenagers in their poses. Here they are lying on a park bench, one of those narrow concrete benches, like a couple of 15 yr. olds! I just love it.
A few posts back I showed an antique store and told you the story abt. it being a Cotton Mill several years back...well here are the houses that surrounded it. My grandparents in the above pic both worked at the mill and this is my dad probably around 1948/49. Yes, I know I got my figure from him!

Just to clear up the redneck story from the last few posts, here is my great grandad, Sidney on the far right with my great grandmom, Cora in front of him. I just wanted you to know that he did get dressed up at times and didn't want you all to see the chicken killin image when you heard me talk of him. My grandad and grandma are next to them, grandad's sister Eunice and her husband "Red", and then my grandad's brother Grady and Nellie on the left end. I think this was a family reunion of sorts back in the 50's. I have so many memories of this family but sadly no one is left except my uncle Grady's second wife. Most of the children of this generation is here but they just don't care abt. getting together like I do, probably cause I am just so nosy and want to hear all of the stories and see all of the pics.
I have a lot more pics to post later today of something I made for a Lollishop ad and of all the sweet deals I got yesterday at the Friends of the Library Book Sale. For those that don't return, have a wonderful weekend!!

Hello Angela, I love your family photos. The newlyweds do look so happy. A treasure of a photo to have.
Your family photos showing the people you loved is how it should be. I too love to have reunions. Our last family reunion I was the 2nd oldest cousin there. LOL. How did that happen?

Have a great weekend...Jeanne

Your family does 'clean up' good, don't! So you thought that's all we would remember - the headless chickens? You are too cute!

Thank you for sharing the happy looking newlyweds and the others in your family.
