I’ve been digging through the old family archives and came up with this gem of a photograph:
It was probably taken around the turn of the last century at the Civil War monument in Washington Park in Michigan City, Indiana. At the top is my great-grandfather, George Warrington. At the bottom, with his tongue stuck out, is my grandfather Chet, whose exploits in the sky I document here. Evidently he isn’t as enthused with the “great old time” as his elders were.
For the most part child discipline was stricter in those days than now, but there were exceptions, and Chet was one of them, abetted by his mother, as Chet was their only child.
