|"Tootie" in the Pond |
Down Under at 286 Montello Street
So...why is this one of my "faves?"
First of all, it's a classic "Tootie" picture. A girl and her dog. The pond. And the hair! What's with the hair?! Whew! I think those are curlers. I hope they are curlers. Not sure which dog. I'm sure she could tell you.
But another reason why I like this picture and am posting it, is because it remind you of how things used to look down below. Wide open, grass low (thanks to the sheep), wall and fence in better shape, and the tree. I wonder what happened to the tree.
6 months from now, God willing, we will make a beginning of trying to "fix up" the back. It will never be what it was, and that's okay. That's a memory, and mostly good, I'm sure. A lot of blood, sweat, and tears went into it all, and we think it would make Grampa and Granny happy to know we are trying to keep it alive and well.
And by the way - we can always use a little help. Bring your work clothes and pond shoes!
