My maternal aunt wanted to know who those women are on the banner above. I told her they are members of a tug-of-war team in some state like Wisconsin. Then she wanted to know why I used a picture of total strangers. I told her that I thought it was funny.
And then she upped the ante and said something like, “I’ll show you funny.”
And she did. Among those that she e-mailed was this photo of her grandfather — my great-grandfather.
