4-12-17


Back in June 2016, I started a new "series" of posts... if you will... 
 And so on Wednesdays; I've been posting an old photograph to inspire your creativity.
Write a poem!   
 Plot out a short story.
 Have inspiration for a piece of art or composition.... let your artistic soul shine.
--and occasionally I write my own sordid story or poem. 
 (you can click on the photos in this post to make it larger to see).

Today I don't have a story so much as a recollection.
Actually... several.
After all, I think most of us remember when our parents would make us all get in our "Sunday Best"
... especially for Easter. For guys, this usually meant a new suit or tie.
For the girls... at least in my family... it was a dress and a hat.
I love hats, and somewhere along the way got out of the habit of wearing them.
I'm thinking it's time to change that.

I don't know anything about these girls, save for the fact that
I have several photos of them growing up through the years that were in an album
I purchased at an antique shop several years ago.
I know the youngest daughter in the front, must have just gotten glasses,
because they are missing in earlier photographs of her. I also know she had a pet pig that she bottle fed.
At any rate, none of the sisters look thrilled to be all dressed up.
Seems like they would rather be back on the farm...
