This picture has beenhanging on my wall for many years without a clue as to who theywere. If it hadn't been for Karen sending me the above picture ofMalinda Shepherd, I still wouldn't know who they were. But lookclosely at #18 in the back row to the left of the porch post.THAT is Malinda Shepherd without her glasses! Malinda is what Iwould call as plain as a fence post, but she certainly had somegood looking kids!

But had I not found mycousin, Jim Clark, I still would not be able to identify the restof this "herd". Jim has done a marvelous job ofidentifying most of them.
