Well, today is my birthday and Friday is Larry's. We will be 135. You can figure out our ages using algebra. X + Y = 135 and X + 1 = Y ! So, X + X + 1 = 135! So 2 X = 135 - 1! Lots of folks say they don't use algebra, but I always have. When I am trying to figure out an unknown, I often write out a formula. I liked algebra but never took very many high level math classes. I did take algebra in college. I also often use A squared + B squared = C squared! Guess I am a little weird!
I saw this picture on the Newton County History site. it was taken in 1910. The family lived on the Little Buffalo River! Looks like they are logging. I love the picture and wonder who it is! The site did not say.
