Sepia Saturday challenges bloggers to share family history through old photographs.
This week’s Sepia Saturday prompt suggests any number of alliterative possibilities including brushes, bellies, British bobbies, bums, and beards. Unfortunately – or not – I come from a long line of clean-shaven men. But there are a few memorable beards.
There is a DISTINGUISHED beard:
Some GOAT beards:
Some GRIZZLEY beards:
|Unknown -- I suspect he is a Davis,|
maybe my 2X great grandfather Mitchell Davis
|Family of Daniel and Lydia Kohne|
|Family of Adam and Caroline Kohne|
my husband's great grandparents
(the littlest girl is his grandmother)
And even some FAKE beards:
I don’t know where I had been – grocery store probably, but this is the scene I came home to in August of 1993.
Masking tape beards and rolled paper cigarettes always make a game of cards more fun. (And for the record, the beer was NOT opened, thank-goodness.)
Whether the idea sprang from boredom or mischief, those girls set the bar high on creativity.
For more beards and maybe some bellies and bobbies, get your bum over to Sepia Saturday.
