Last week I told you all about the deer that hung in the stairway at Far Guys childhood home for many years. It is now upstairs in our home.
Then I found photos of many members of the family with the deer. Now this would have been totally normal in the 1950’s and beyond if you were part of a hunting family. I was always excited when my Dad came home with a deer and we wanted to have our photographs taken with it too!
Cousin Jay, Far Guy and Far Guys Dad.
Far Guys sister..I can just hear Far Guys Mother saying “Janice put your scarf on before going outside with that deer.”
This sure looks like cousin Bonnie to me..high-water pants and all. Look at that.. no snow boots either…no wonder she likes to escape to Florida in the winter.
It was fun for me to find all these old photos in an old hunting and fishing photo album that belonged to Far Guys Dad. I am in the process of scanning them…just one of my many projects:)
