Silly Hair Day?

Back row, L-R: Frank Patrick, Ray Choitz, Marge Choitz, Louis “Bud” Choitz, Louis William Choitz
Front Row, L-R: Emily Patrick, Jerry Choitz, Alvera Choitz, Leila Patrick Youngs, Ron Choitz, Anna Marie Nielsen, Grace Choitz, Charlie Choitz.

I scanned this photo on January 29, 2009. I was in possession of my grandmother’s photo albums for a brief period — on loan from my Aunt Corrine. Even though I edited it a bit, I never really looked at it until today when I was trying to figure out who was who. I assumed that the boy in front was my cousin Ron Choitz and noticed his hair was standing up in the middle. I assumed the wind had come by just at the point the photographer was taking the photo. Studying the other faces, I noticed that the boy on the left in the middle row also had hair that was sticking up. Then I noticed the looks on the adults surrounding him. What a hoot!

Grandma Patrick is not pleased, nor is Aunt Alvera or the two men and possibly woman in the back row.
I think that Aunt Leila finds it rather humorous though. Maybe even Great Grandma Nielsen.
