I saw one of the pictures in this post tonight when I was looking for something else last night and just couldn’t get it out of my mind today. You know what that means? It means that I had to blog about it.
It looks a bit cold as they are all bundled up. I am wondering if my aunt is just posing for the picture. Surely she wasn’t shoveling corn while wearing a dress and the light shoes that she had on. My dad and uncle are dressed properly for work with jeans, gloves and work shoes.
My dad looks a lot like my youngest brother in this picture.
What intrigues me about this picture is that my dad is holding a book. He knows how to relax when he has a break from work.
Of course, I had to check out the title of the book and find out more about it. The book is The Secret of the Cave by Arthur S. Maxwell. The book was written in 1920 and was made into a movie in 2006.
I will have to acquire a copy to read. My local library system does not have a copy, but it is available through interlibrary loan. I have added it to my reading list.
I am wondering why my dad is riding a cow. Is he wishing it was a horse?
I will have to check with him next time I call him.
The picture is also interesting as it looks like it has a ghost image from another picture in the background.
These pictures bring back good memories of visiting farms and also the time when I worked as a cowboy.
Would you ride a cow?
