My mom is the first on the left of these Oakley, KS beauties. I don't know who won, but the blond is certainly getting into the spirit of the race! Picture was taken ca 1944, and Mom would have been ca 14 years old. I don't know how well my mom could run, but when she was in her mid 70s, she won a watermelon seed spitting contest against a lot of young men. It was held in my backyard on July 4th! Cousin Ralph Trego, Jr. can you identify the other three girls?

Vicki Bever Doze May 11 · My mom with my dad. They were married in 1946, so I think this was taken in that year. Mom became LaVaughn Hudson Bever.

Vicki Bever Doze 7 hrs · This picture was taken at Fike Park in Colby, Kansas in 1949. In 1950, Mom became a young widow with two little girls. I don't know who cut my bangs. Lol! Naturally, I had my tongue sticking out! My sis Coleen on the left. We are 13 months apart. My mom is so young and I think she's cute here!
