This is part of the Hardy clan at my grandparents house outside of Longview, Texas.  I look to be about five, so I would assume the year to be 1946 or 1947.  Left to right:  My dad R. C., my grandfather Henry H., my grandmother Addie, behind her my mother Ruth, Gary, my uncle Paul, behind him my uncle Bert, my cousin Cynthia sitting on my aunt Loreneís lap, and behind them Paulís wife Sally.  This entire area was an oil field.  I can remember being able to see a large number of derricks from their place, including one no more than 50 yards from the house.  As a boy I loved to visit here, since it gave me, a city boy, an opportunity to explore the oil derricks, woods and surrounding countryside.
