Some Mothers

My great-great grandmother, Mary Jane Walker. At Portage la Prairie, Manitoba.

Reta, who would the little girl standing in front of her have been?

My sister Karen with a portrait of our great-grandmother, Caroline Engene. Some serious genes going on between those two. Karen is at least 20 years older than the lady in the oval frame, but still the spittin' image:

The Wendy Klein print reminds me of Mom, because of the joyful noise those gals are making:


  1. Great photos! I love when the past comes back to "flaunt us".

  2. Haha! I love how Mom's just trying so hard to keep a straight face in that picture! Does look just exactly like her, though.

  3. She'll probably have my head for posting the picture, but I can't get over how much she looks like that grandmother of ours! Mom used to tell us that when she herself was a little girl, she would do anything her Grandma Benson asked her to, including drinking buttermilk, which she would not do for her own mother.

  4. She does look like your grandmother! I hope you had a happy Mother's Day!
