In the top photo are my mother and two of her brothers. From left you'll see Albert Flanders (1918-2002), Ruby Flanders (1925-1990) and Mervin Flanders (1921-2007). In the second photo I've posted a picture of my half-sister, the daughter of my mother and her second husband. She looks so much like our mother in the photo above.
I have a lot of pictures from my mother's high school photo album that show her just out having fun with her friends. You can see above that she (Ruby Flanders 1925-1990) and her cousin Betty Flanders (1926-2010) are posing at a monument that I know is at Pawnee Rock, KS.
Posted below are many pictures showing my mom having fun with cousins and friends on the railroad tracks, depot or on train cars! I guess in the early 1940s you'd have fun wherever you could find it!
