The Forum has many, many readers. They cover a wide spread of ages. This picture is proof of that.

The older person is Everett Walkinshaw. He was 85 when this picture was taken in 2009.

The somewhat younger reader is Easton Thvedt. He's Everett's great-grandson. He was 2.

The photo was sent in by Leah Thvedt, Easton's mom. It was taken at her grandparents' farm at Argusville, N.D.

"Easton used to thumb through every page of The Forum every Sunday morning," Leah writes. "That was his thing. My grandpa (Everett) and the rest of the family thought it was so funny."

Leah's mother took the picture. Everett had just given Easton that day's paper "and he (Easton) couldn't wait to start reading." Or whatever he did, at age 2.

Everett now lives in the Bethany Retirement Center, Fargo, while Easton lives with his family in Reile's Acres, N.D.

So, since Neighbors hopes these two are still regularly reading The Forum: Hi, Everett and Easton! The Forum hopes you both are having a good day!
