What can you do when both arms are broken? Not much typing, that’s for sure! With all the time I have to think, (ha,ha), I came up with an idea to keep this blog going with limited arm usage. That brings me to my new blog series: “The Picture Tells The Story.” I’ll choose a family photo and try to limit the words to 100. That might take me a day or three, with resting my arms and using one or two fingers. And mostly, correcting typos. So, here goes.
I’m starting this series with a Niehaus family photo to coincide with the Niehaus Reunion taking place on July 22, 2012, tomorrow.
Our group of spiffed-up young ladies above is gathered at St. Roch Catholic Church, Indianapolis, Indiana for the wedding of Charles Niehaus and Chloe Mae Turner on June 29, 1957. In the center back row is Ruth Niehaus, grandmother to all the cousins pictured and mother of the groom. We cousins are, left to right, Donna Niehaus, Diane Ellis, Kathleen Murphy (center front), Sharon Ellis, Nancy Niehaus (me, shortest one), Marilyn Niehaus and Martha Niehaus (my sister).
I think I can speak for all of us pictured by saying this was a special celebration day. Our Uncle Charles and Aunt Chloe Mae were caring people that we all loved.
