John Mathew Winters and Delpha June Bartel

Pictures of my maternal Grandparents graciously given me by my Aunt Carol. Grandpa Johnny was one of ten children, Grandma June an only child. I have very few memories of them, but I can hear their voices. I can hear my Grandpa Johnny singing "Three Little Fishes". I can hear my Grandmother laughing, my Grandfather begins laughing too. I was just a little girl, sitting in the backseat with my brother, but I remember thinking how fun they were and I wished that I could be with them more often.


Three Little Fishies

Down in the meadow in a little bitty pool
Swam three little fishies and a mama fishie too
"Swim" said the mama fishie, "Swim if you can"
And they swam and they swam all over the dam

Boop boop dit-tem dat-tem what-tem Chu!
Boop boop dit-tem dat-tem what-tem Chu!
Boop boop dit-tem dat-tem what-tem Chu!
And they swam and they swam all over the dam

"Stop" said the mama fishie, "or you will get lost"
The three little fishies didn't wanna be bossed
The three little fishies went off on a spree
And they swam and they swam right out to the sea

Boop boop dit-tem dat-tem what-tem Chu!
Boop boop dit-tem dat-tem what-tem Chu!
Boop boop dit-tem dat-tem what-tem Chu!
And they swam and they swam right out to the sea

"Whee!" yelled the little fishies, "Here's a lot of fun
We'll swim in the sea till the day is done"
They swam and they swam, and it was a lark
Till all of a sudden they saw a shark!

Boop boop dit-tem dat-tem what-tem Chu!
Boop boop dit-tem dat-tem what-tem Chu!
Boop boop dit-tem dat-tem what-tem Chu!
Till all of a sudden they saw a shark!

"Help!" cried the little fishies, "Gee! look at all the whales!"
And quick as they could, they turned on their tails
And back to the pool in the meadow they swam
And they swam and they swam back over the dam

Boop boop dit-tem dat-tem what-tem Chu!
Boop boop dit-tem dat-tem what-tem Chu!
Boop boop dit-tem dat-tem what-tem Chu!
And they swam and they swam back over the dam.

Wow! Thanks for doing the first monthly special so quickly! That looks so cool (I especially like how the airplane and the horse squares counterbalance the head shots)!

This turned out great! It's very cool to see "old" photos this way.
