This photo was taken at my parents home at the farm in 1971.
Far Guy holding Snuffer our dog. The lady laughing is Far Guy’s Aunt Beryl…she was widowed in January of 1971 (Uncle Ron was just 52 years old when he died.) My Dad with a big grin on his face is handing Beryl a snow shovel with a poinsettia on it. My other baby brother ( age 11) and my sister (age 5) look on. I believe that Aunt Beryl had complained about an old beat up snow shovel.
Far Guy is holding Snuffers muzzle to keep her from barking…she was a great watch dog! She was just a few months old. She was a $5 mutt part Scottie that Far Guy bought at a garage sale for my birthday. ( Snuffer lived a good long time and helped raise our girls to like animals.)
I believe that this photo was taken on Christmas Eve 1971. Far Guy had a lot more hair back then…we were both college students at Moorhead State College now Minnesota State University Moorhead.
What a great picture. It made me smile....you have lots of good memories! Love the snow shovel! LOL!
Oh, my. Love this adorable pic. Reminds me of good times with my family of which most are gone.
I wondered what FG was doing with Snuffer's muzzle. Thanks for explaining. What a great picture, and you must have a huge collection of pictures, since you keep coming up with them from way back when. :-)
My husband bought me a scoop shovel for cleaning up snow or manure for my wedding gift. I still have it!
Snuffer looks like a hoot! I love the carefree laughter on everyone's faces! Wonderful memories.
The old(er) pictures are really fun!
I see pure joy in this old photo!
Wonderful memories in this photo!
Thank you for sharing such wonderful memories with us all. The undeniable, unrestrained joy on everyone’s faces is beautiful to see. Blessings always, Betsy
Love it! I think it's funny to look at your old and family pictures, I guess because I've been looking at them so long they feel like they are as familiar as my family.
Oh Connie, what a purely delightful picture with memories to go along with! 1971... that was a very good year and a good good Christmas!! Love, Andrea xoxo
Such a lovely photo with great memories attached
What a great photo! Joy all around.
Dig those side burns!
I love the picture! Everyone looks so happy. Snuffer was a cutie pie.
aww, I love this old picture and your memories of that time. Thanks for sharing!
So delightful to see everyone having a good time! Laughter is so wonderful! See how many good memories a picture like that brings back.
Looks like everyone is having a good time, except maybe Snuffer!
Pure love shining there...
You must get a kick out of remembering the stories behind these old photos.
Everyone seems to be in a great mood. Good memories.
It is hard to believe how far back is 1971. Everybody was having a good laugh with the new snow shovel. I am sure things were being said to cause all the laughter. Your younger siblings were young back then.
Snuffed is adorable. I thought he was a cat!
I love old photos, they bring back so many memories!
