Johnny, the little cross-eyed guy on the left not carrying anything. Never did pull his own weight but he was fun to be around.There was another one of us added to the family a few years after this photo was taken. I'm guessing this was 1958, brother Jim came along in '62. He's got a birthday coming up real soon as well.
We had it good growing up. Hopefully, those of us remaining will continue to have it good as we grow old. They say you can tell when a guy is old because he keeps looking backwards, rather than forwards. I don't think I'm there yet but I do miss John and the fun we had growing up out in the country.
