Only The Shadow Knows
This page will be of absolutely no interest to anyone except those who shared the experience, and those who share my offbeat sense of humor. But the old lurking shadow syndrome has remained with me thru the years. Whenever we were lined up, stood up, set up, (I even have one of me where they tied me in a chair!) anyway...to get our picture taken, we had to face the sun, or the ole nemesis, The Shadow would have his way with our snapshot. Upon reflection today, I think we simply got 2 for 1!!
My cousin Kenneth Gilley. This was taken in front of Grandma Streetman's house. You can see just the corner of her porch. "The Shadow" is his Mother, Frances Lollette, lovingly remembered as Auntie.

where he was cut from a fall on a fruit jar
