Drive north.

Near Lodi, Wisconsin, October 1989. It's a nice getaway.

Before the Ceremony

Melrose Park, Illinois, June 1989. Members of Vėtra, the Connecticut folkdance group with which Mr. Irene performed, gather outside the church before our wedding. Vėtra later did a few numbers at the reception.

Door County, Wisconsin, October 1985. It's not monotonous.


Near Erlangen, German, about 1944. By the time this woman—a medical-school classmate of my Mom's—gave Mom this snapshot, the woman's husband had long departed for the Eastern Front.

A Closer Look (Part 83)

Panemunėlis, Lithuania, about 1902 to 1904. This is Bronislava. Bronislava was the wife of my Dad's paternal uncle Kazimieras. Bronislava was the mother of Henry and Vytas. That also makes her my Kaunas Cousin's Great-Grandmother.

Here's the original post.

Scooter Reunion

Lugano, Switzerland, July 1971. I think it's charming that "vespa" is the Italian word for "wasp."


Kaunas, Lithuanian Soviet Socialist Republic, 1958. My Dad's older cousin, Henry, admires his Granddaughter, my Kaunas Cousin.

In-the-Woods Reunion

Thatcher Woods, Cook County Forest Preserve, September 24, 2016. Mr. Irene headed back last weekend to the Chicago area for a high-school reunion. He stopped at Thatcher Woods to revisit some memories, and he was happy to find the place in great shape.

A Closer Look (Part 81)

Palanga, Lithuania, about 1920. What a serious fellow!
