Once in a while I like to get out the old albums and find a black and white photo from long ago and far away. These are photos that are previously unused on this blog, and photos that needed a bit of tweaking from iPhoto. I scanned then tweaked. These were taken circa 1949. I'm only guessing, because the date wasn't written on the back, but I can estimate from the respective ages of the subjects. And not that Lillie looks to be about 35. It's the ages of the children that gives me the most information. Since I know their birthdates, well you know the rest.
The photo was taken at Richard Anderson's farm in Burnett County. I know the place well, although it really only currently exists in my memory. The photographers are easy enough to surmise. It looks like they (we) were having a good time.
Another 1949 photo within minutes of the previous one. Without the dog. Does anyone remember its name?? Notice the stylish suspenders.
Not much else to say. I'm going for a walk in the sunshine and reflect on the state of the world and to appreciate the falling leaves and the miracle that I'm here to witness them. And that I'm still hitting my sliced backhand with some alacrity.
