This set of sepias is a tribute to my mostly glamorous Aunt Cleta.
I think this is her high school graduation picture.
Dressed up and looking so pretty -
This is Aunt Cleta with my Uncle Rex, around the time they got married. She was very young, and Uncle Rex was older, he had already been off to the Navy, serving during WWII. They look really happy together, don't they?
Aunt Cleta was glamourous but she was also fearless - she is posing with a pile of dead coyotes. They were farmers and coyotes are predators to farm animals so it was very normal for farmers to hunt coyotes.
One Christmas - I love all the icicles on the Oklahoma cedar tree.
I'd guess she is dressed up for a party in this one
Cleta and Rex - probably after a long day of farm work
here she is wearing a very pretty long hostess skirt
Aunt Cleta passed away of brain cancer in the early 1980's. Uncle Rex just moved into a retirement home - but not because of his health, for less to do taking care of a home and for all the social activities at the retirement home. He still goes dancing most every Saturday night and bakes the best pies and biscuits.
