The rest of the story

As we sat around the table, the subject of the photo came up. Where was that taken? Oh, that was at the farmhouse. But, what year? How old were you? Which one is you? Who is that? Where is your sister?

Well, the magic of Photoshop and other such tools that can be used to manipulate and change the past in ways we never imagined had created a bit of a conundrum when it came to identifying the small children in the Christmas photo.

So… I went on a search after my mother said, “you cut those girls off.” What, me….? Well, yes I did. I had used that photograph to create a cover for a short story I wrote for a Christmas Card many years ago. So, here is the original wonderful whole photograph. I don’t know who took it – but I think that is my dad to the right and a wonderful old TV to the left. Note the greeting cards hanging behind the tree. Christmas love and joy from all of us to all of you…

Christmas at Grandma and Grandpa Kaseman's farm house, circa 1959. Edward and Christina Kaseman's grandchildren. (Back, l-r) Dennis Schwind, Rickey Kaseman, Brunella Schwind. (middle) Douglas Schwind, (front l-r) Debbie Kaseman, Steven Schwind, and Susan Kaseman. The two little heads, we surmise, are Tamara Kaseman and Christina Kaseman. Love the television.
