Dale and "Sister".
We were in Lincoln this afternoon and stopped by to visit Dale and Marlene. She had knee surgery last week and is recuperating at home following 3 days in the hospital. Elaine and Dale never get together without some new childhood story surfacing. Today's story was when she and Dale were playing in the corn crib as kids and he climbed up into a storage area where Santa Claus had hid their new red coaster wagon. It was at that formidable age when little "Sister" faced reality. Elaine has done some writing about their growing up on the farm but it is amazing how these new stories surface when they are primed by their conversations that feed off each other. They both seem to regain a youthful sparkle as they talk about their childhood. I think it even shows through on this picture.
