If you got the picture, there was a note on the back that it was taken to send to her cousins in Denmark.  Grandmother Skow took the girls back to Denmark when your grandmother was about 3 or 4. I gather that grandpa Skow would get about 3 sheets in the wind and turn as mean as an acre of snakes.  Your grandmother kept up a correspondence with her cousins in Denmark after she came back to Iowa. In particular with Randi Blond's mother. The fact of the matter is that after World War 2 things were not to good in Denmark, and the folks use to send CARE packages over there to your grandmother's kin about ever month for a year os two.  CARE was a good think, a non-government relief and aid program that kept alot of folks across the pond from starving to death after the war.
