On August 25, 1929, 82 years ago, a baby girl was born to Vernon and Thelma Kirkland. She was delivered at home in a little place called Leary, Texas.

These two photos were made November, 1929. The back ground in one shot shows where we lived then. The backside of nowhere.
My parents and we three girls. Notice our dresses. All made from flour/feed sacks.
Another shot of us later in life.
These are my early school days during 1930-40. Note those hair styles.

I graduated in 1948 from The Atlanta, Texas high school.
An early photo of my husband, Noah and I.
Later, this precious child, which was the love of our life, appeared. Our son, Terry.

As time went on, our family changed. Our son,Terry, grew up and our granddaughter, Carie joined us.

She informed me you had to be over 18 to purchase for some reason. I forgot what she said as I was so surprised.
