Today’s picture shows Dad’s father, Warren. If I shaved my beard and mustache I could just about use this as a current picture for myself. I guess from what Dad told me, his real name is James Warren. It would help if his family went by the names their parents gave them instead of feeling they had to be creative. Maybe I should go by Alan, but then I might get confused with Linda’s part time boyfriend and if Derek went by Warren, then we’d really be confused. The earlier picture was Dad’s grandfather, John Knowles. At this point I am speculating that Dad’s great-grandfather was named Charles.
In other news, it has been raining lately so I haven’t gotten out to take pictures much. We need some visitors to come and bring some sunshine to us. The good news is that after mowing the lawn, the deer seem to be content with the pasture next door. I guess that serves as a good reminder, if I see deer in the yard, it’s time to mow the lawn again.
