Snapshots

I have had a picture in my mind of Scott, David and me at this stream "out west" for as long as I can remember. And I never really knew if it was an actual memory, or if I just dreamed it up. You can imagine how I felt when I found this photo a few years ago. I think I must have seen it at some point after the trip and it stayed in my mind.

For as long as I can remember, I have had a picture in my mind of Scott, David and me at this stream.  And I never really knew if it was an actual memory, or if I just dreamed it up.  You can imagine how I felt when I found this photo a few years ago.  I think I must have seen it at some point after the trip and it stayed in my mind. 

I found this picture with a couple others that were labeled "Black Hills" on the back.  I think this stream was near a cabin where we stayed in the Black Hills on a family road trip.

"A good snapshot..."

Addendum:  A note from my brother confirmed that the above picture was taken at a place "in or near" the Black Hills.  He wrote that we were staying at a motel that had cabins and there was a creek behind the cabins. 

We were on our way to Wyoming (I think) where Mom and Dad - and probably David - were working with Muggs Townsend's concession stands at the rodeos. 

Here are a couple more pictures - the first one is from that same trip and I'm quite sure the second one is too.

Jane, David and Scott - on the way to Douglas Wyoming (I think) to work at Muggs Townsend's concession stands. Well, I sat in the Grand Stand and ate hot dogs, but everyone else worked.

Black Hills, South Dakota

I've always loved this picture - partly because the people on the stools are having so much fun.  That's my mom behind the counter on the right and Walt (Speed) is behind the counter on the left.  The caption was written on the back of the picture.
