More of Kenneth at work

Another serious Kenneth photo:Here, my grandfather looks serious while reading. The photo was taken in the apartment Kenneth and Ruthe lived in in Booneville, Missouri.

Outdoor cooking

I've never been clear on this picture. Ruthe and Kent are looking at the pan (with a different top) sitting on the grill. But they stand far off, as if expecting danger.

I meant to post yesterday to wish Kent and Pat a happy anniversary, but I forgot! Argh! So happy belated anniversary to them.

Update: read the comments for an explanation of what's happening. I knew my mother would come through with an explanation

Bradley weddings

I have only been to one Bradley wedding (um ... other than mine), but I'm told they're always a good time. A picture from the Cook-Bradley wedding:

Ann dances with her father, William Cook, at her wedding.

I post this today to wish Ann a happy birthday!

Georgia and John Meeker, my great-grandparents, at Ruthe Meeker and Kenneth Cooper's wedding ... looking very serious (it was their youngest daughter's wedding, after all)

Fun with groceries

Not actually a picture of relatives, but rather a glimpse of life here in Casa BrIsaacson:

Often, I will discover that extra items have been added to my grocery list. This week I put olive oil on the list. I later discovered that someone (ahem) had put Popeye on the list immediately below olive oil.

So, imagine my surprise when at the store I actually discovered a can of Popeye spinach.

Now we have the complete set. (Yes that's a big thing of olive oil, but we use a lot of it around her.)

In Tokyo

My mother at the Hachiko statue outside of the Shibuya train station. A picture from our trip to Japan, June 2007.
