Up, Up, She Climbed

Greta says, "Clayton look!"

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.
