These are fascinating! I love this thread.

It makes me wonder if my family ever had photos and what happened to them?

We have one of the very first color lithographs. (entitled The Knife Grinder)
it's french..given to my family in Germany during the war as a thank you gift.
They disappeared into the night. Took it to the Smithsonian and they didn't
want to buy it but they asked if we cared to donate it. No idea as to the value but it has senitmental meaning to me.

Forgot to add that this was given to my grandfather by his boss who was
Jewish. The boss took his family that same night and they just melted away some where. It always hung in my granparents living room. I was born on their couch right under the picture. That's why it has meaning to me. (Silly huh.)

I rode a pig once. There was nothing to hold on to. And then, when he got me on the ground he tried to eat me. It's not funny. To this day my brother laughs about it. I don't think it's near as funny as he does. hahaha
