During the 18 years we were in the Washington D.C. area, we never missed a summer of getting back to visit family in Nebraska. We even came back for Christmas the first few years. This was taken during the summer of '74 when we were back and had a family reunion. All of my folks family were together at Souceks here in Seward. This was after 12 years in D.C. and the kids had moved through school or still in college. As is apparent, these were the days of long hair. I think it bothered Elaine and I more than the Grandparents. Elaine might have been able to go to work dressed as she is in the picture but I would have been sent home to change had I gone to work dressed like I am with the plaid trousers.
