60 Nebraskaland • May 2019 PORTRAITS FROM THE PAST I ran across the attached photo of my little brother Steve, right, and me with a pair of carp. The photo is from 1967. While it looks like we hooked the carp, our dad, Tony, shot them while bowfishing. Next to fishing, we liked Batman most! – Don Blankenau, Lincoln From left, my dad, Tom Eads; Bob Grier, former Nebraskaland Magazine regional editor; Barry Carlson; and Ozzie Randall in 1974. Bob and Barry went rattlesnake hunting with my dad and neighbor Ozzie. The article was in the August 1976 magazine titled "The Viper's Den." My dad passed away five years ago, and I have such memories of him and me going snake hunting. In fact, I still live where this photo was taken, and I still hunt with my kids. – Brenda Eads Fulk, Whitney Send contributions to: Portraits from the Past, Nebraskaland Magazine, P.O.
