This is my mother's oldest Tom. By these pictures I think he was something of a ham when there was a camera in front of him.
His wife MaryJo was a ham also. They loved to pose for photographs.
The internet and blogging was after his time. He died in 1979, but I thought I would do him a favor I'm sure he would appreciate: Plaster his posing face to all in the world who stumbles across it.
By the way, the line of brothers and my father Tom is the 3rd from the right (can't you tell by the pose?) and my father, who has always been shy in front of a camera is on the far right.
