|Mom and "friend" - Dec. 2 1967|
My brother John and I both inherited the teasing playfulness personality of our father. Our other brother Isaac didn't.
Our dad often teased our Mom. She was usually a good sport about it.....most of the time. Every now and then the joke went a little too far like the time my father electrified the wooden toilet seat in the outhouse that my Mother was using. She almost knocked over that outhouse getting out of there. She almost killed my father too when she found out that he had just played another practical joke on her.

This series of pictures I have on this blog posting is from the time about twenty years ago, during one of Mom's visits to John and his family in Greenville, South Carolina. John took her to a zoo to visit the Spitting Camel. Oh I know my brother John. He wouldn't of have been too upset if the Spitting Camel put on a show for our Mother. Unfortunately for John but fortunately for our Mother, the Spitting Camel wasn't in a spitting mood the day Mom visited him.

Looking at this series of pictures again reminds me of how much we all miss Mom. She was a lot of fun and very good natured. Bill also liked to tease her and you know I did.
