Thanksgiving

Wednesday, November 28th, 2007

It was a great little visit. We stayed at Nic and Marti’s house in Indianapolis, camped in the two cold upstairs rooms which used to be David and Cally’s bedrooms. We ate, drank, talked, drove to family and ate, drank and talked some more.

All of the photos are below the line …

Camp Discovery

We stopped in Lafayette to check out Nic’s living and working accommodations. This photo shows our invasion (five people is a big group) to Nic’s shared office in the basement of the Lily building at Purdue. Nic and the other mad scientists were hard at work.

730 Miami Pass, 1942

I forgot that I had this photo. It is taken from Aunt Mary’s book detailing the construction of her house in Arkansas, with the comment, “The house that shadows me everywhere.” (paraphrasing here). This photo is circa 1942, but may be as late as 1944. I’m assuming earlier, since it is unlikely that both boys would be home at the same time except soon after enlisting.

In the photo are: Robin Steussy (21), Edwin Steussy (47), Helen Steussy (45), Calvin Steussy (19), Mary Shanahan neé Steussy (6).

The window in the upper right is to the small, enclosed bedroom where Calvin and Robin grew up.
