thank you, thank you, thank you to all of the montgomery family, for allowing me to experience your family's stories, smiles, and laughter.




  1. Lenny - these are SO great! Please send them to me on a disk. You made the day just a BIT more fun and crazy!

  2. Hi, Cindy!

    You did a GREAT job with the organization, the slideshow/video, etc., along with helping me feel "at home" with the Montgomery family.

    With any of these pictures, you should be able to:

    1. left-click to enlarge, and/or
    2. right-click to SAVE, directly to your computer's default "pictures" file.

    Let me know if that doesn't work, and i'll get you copies, as desired.


  3. Len,

    Thank you so much for sharing in the "Montgomery Ward". It is amazing how the Montgomery Ward mirrors the Martineau Mental Institute.

    The common factor in both is love and laughter, what more could anyone ask for.

    Welcome to the family, we all love you!


  4. Hey, Len and Jean, and all the Montgomery family!!!

    Looks like you had a GREAT time at your reunion! I see so many similarities ...I'm thinking Montandneau ...

    Miss you lots,
    xoxoxo, me

  5. Clare & Jean,

    If the Mont-and-neaus ever met, it might be difficult to tell the "normal" pictures from the "let's get crazy" pictures...

    :) Len
