Talk about a bunch of Okies


That would be my Aunt Linda, Mom, Pops and Cousin Eugene, probably about 1966 right after Pop’s first tour with the Cav. I’m judging the date by the fact their all drinking Oly and the only time I can remember Pops drinking that was when he was stationed at Ft. Lewis. Uncle Ed and Aunt Linda must’ve drove up with Cousin Eugene to visit and maybe get in some hunting or fishing.
Notice that Pops is the only one not smiling? I guess I take that from him.

Stole this from Mom’s FB page.
