    My grandparents Mina, millineress and Jerome Lee Martin, cowboy. These would have been shown in theaters in Laramie and Casper, WY

    I still have a couple of her cellophane hats, but lost the beautiful leghorn years ago.

    Cracked, but just the protective glass, not the graphic layer - the yellow bands are from my vintage x-ray lightbox


    I've posted on Grandaddy Lee's various exploits in the Golden west before... If you're interested in cowboys, he's the real deal :)


    Here they are, she on her third marriage, he on his second second. They met in a rough mining town, Thermopolis.

    He was a lawman and she was making do with a mentally unstable husband. They stayed in touch and... :)?


    Two middle aged folks with lifetimes behind them, soon to adopt a foundling, Juanita Lorraine. My mother <3

    Figtree3 What would you do if you weren't afraid?

    It's great that you have these, @scoutshouse ! I remember you telling some stories about your grandfather, and just went back to find a couple of them...

    Everyone, thanks for your comments :) I really enjoy sharing as I sort, given time.

    My dream is to have the time to transcribe all Grandaddy Lee's journals and correspondence, and scan all the images. I came across these looking though negatives, which need to be scanned (somehow?).

    I wish it could be my full time job. :(

    The "snappy" hat remark, yes :) + the pavlovian cue, "Before shopping for your next hat" @Debora
