Back in June 2016, I started a new "series" of posts... if you will... 
 And so on Wednesdays; I've been posting an old photograph to inspire your creativity.
Write a poem!   
 Plot out a short story.
 Have inspiration for a piece of art or composition.... let your artistic soul shine.
--and occasionally I write my own sordid story or poem. 
 (you can click on the photos in this post to make it larger to see).


It was hard to catch the Williams' Sisters standing still.
Of course, keeping 6 girls in the same household dressed and fed would have been a feat for any parents;
 but John and Sylvia Williams were not ordinary parents.
Having 3 sets of twins was strange enough... and to have them so close together!
Being a strong Catholic family, they had determined to keep trying for a son, but it was not meant to be.
That said, many thought John was more than happy to have a home full of women.
All the girls were in scouts, then dance lessons, then swimming lessons...
but it was when they got to be older teens that they discovered water sports.
Always competitive, they signed up for a water ski show in Minocqua, Wisconsin.
Sylvia was not surprised when they won... and soon the girls were touring the nation, performing in such fantastic shows as the
Wisconsin State Show Tournament and the Steel Pier Show in New Jersey.

Soon enough... they were all married off, moving to all points across the nation to start their families... alas, summer ends for everyone.
But every year, at the Williams Family Reunions on Lake Michigan,
they were said to have been easily convinced to don their suits and glide across the waves far into their late 70s. You go, girls.


The story, of course, is made up.
But water skiing in Minocqua is very real, and still active today.
