Hold Mouse Over Picture For Details

Mom has been going through old pictures recently.  She's had me scan them, clean them up and make re-prints.  She doesn't know it - but I really enjoy doing it.  It's always a challange to take a picture with corner torn off and fix it so no one notices.....    Anywho - I figured I'd share the pictures here.  Let me know if you find any missing or incorrect names.
