FRENCH WAR BRIDE: This year will mark 63 years since my friend Blanche Higley (then Pinguet) came to the United States from her native France. She arrived to marry and start a life with Ernest Higley, an American soldier, after World War II. (Ernest and my husband are cousins.) I wanted to share her story and this photograph with other readers.
STILL STANDING: A rare sight today, an old 1929 outhouse can be found near Rhineland, Missouri, and this old log shed, which may have been used as a corn crib, can be spotted near Americus, Missouri. Marie Lauer - Rhineland, Missouri
