Thanksgiving's Past (1950)


When we lived in Jerome Idaho, I don't ever remember having Thanksgiving at our house.  I think we always went out of town for Thanksgiving which for me  was the most exciting time in my life. It meant seeing cousins to play with and sleeping overnight  and eating wonderful food. .
I remember going to Payette, Idaho where my Grandmother Tomlinson and Aunt Louise and cousins Ardyth and Lee lived.  Aunt  Louise was a single mother who  taught school in Payette.  My mother and dad picked me up right when school was out and we drove what seemed like very late in the night before we arrived in Payette.  There were so many little towns to drive through and I was so excited to see my only cousins on my father's side.  It would always be a wonderful time and I didn't want it to end. Sadly, I don't have any pictures of Thanksgiving with Dad's side of the family.
Other years we would travel to Rupert, Idaho for Thanksgiving with Mother's side of the family, the Perrins. Mother's sister my Aunt Gladys and Uncle Reed lived on a farm in Rupert.   Or I remember traveling to Ucon, Idaho just north of Idaho Falls where my mother's sister Kerma and Uncle Bill lived on a farm.  The above pictures are Thanksgiving at Aunt Kerma's with lots of Aunts and Uncles and loads of cousins.   Wonderful memories.
