Photo Friday - Grandpa Van Vorhis

Late Wednesday/early Thursday, I posted about the death of my grandfather.

Photo Fridays usually consist of photos of bells. I have more than a year's worth of bells. But instead of bells, I thought I would post some photos of my grandfather that I found during the visitation. It was very cool to see family resemblances between my great-grandfather, Grandpa, my dad, and my two sons. I even found a photo of me and my barn, which I mentioned in my last blog entry.

So check these out, and hopefully I will return to bells next Friday.


A crooked hat. I wear my hat this way, as well.
So does my father and my oldest son.

Check out the family resemblance. This is my dad as a toddler. Below is my
oldest son, at age 9 months or so. They look very much alike.


Me and my barn. I still have it.

who doesn't want his picture taken.

Here is a close-up of me, which my wife points out is the
same stance and attitudinal face that my youngest son has.
