Old Photo


Blogs and Blogging...



I wrote a blog post last August titled "Getting The Mail." It was about the interest that the daily mail brought to our lives while I was growing up, and at the end of the post, I mentioned that somewhere I had an old photo of me opening our mailbox.

I happened to find that photo this evening while I was looking for a different one, so I've uploaded it to the "Getting The Mail" post. I mention this particularly for the Heeler who had written in his comment, "Like to see the brownie photo though."

VERY evocative. Time, place, and poetry in the image.

In that photo, I think I'm wearing the dress that I had to sew in Home Economics class. It was just a straight dress without a waistband that was called a "shift". The bouffant hairdo was very 1960's too.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
