This is just one of the old family photos I found in the trunk last winter.
This one is clearly marked. Tommy and Tippy. That would be Far Guy’s cousin Tom H. I think this photo was taken in about 1942. So someone might be approaching seventy or seventy one.
A little boy and a small puppy, old photos don’t get much better than that.
The grass is long in many of the old photos. People weren’t as fussy with their lawns. They were busy working in the fields and gardens trying to get enough food grown and put up to make the winter. Maybe they cut it with a rotary mower if they could afford one. Some people may have put their goats or sheep out to graze on the lawn. Now that is a win win situation mowing and fertilizing at the same time:)
