Levi and Stephen Do the Hula

This was created at JibJab. Janice Brown over at Cow Hampshire has challenged all the Genea-bloggers to show our humor gene. Here's two gentlemen (my great-great grandfathers) from McLean County, Illinois doing the Hula. Stephen Taylor (1814-1881) is the dark-headed one. Levi Lantz (1811-1887), an Amish man, is the other.

Very funny, but what would your great-great-grandmothers say?

That's a tough one. I suspect that Betsey put up with more than that from Stephen from what I've read about him. Barbara might not have appreciated that from Levi!

Betsy and Barbara have obviously put an end to Levi and Stephen worldly ways --- I can't seem to see nor hear them doing the Hula or anything else. Four tries --- so Betsy and Barbara have got them back under control. LOL!

Make that "fine" instead of "find." I shouldn't be trying to type when I'm not awake yet!
