Tonight, I was looking through an old photo album I have, and just found again. There were a few pictures I thought I might share with everybody. Kel, “the eldest” sibling, is often commenting, and talking about the horses we had. When we were growing up, we had five horses. They each had a unique personality, and none of them seemed to like me very much. One of them even gave me a black eye when I was in 1 st. or 2 nd. grade. I suppose it may have been because I was young, and not paying attention when I waked up behind him. He kicked me a good one, and somehow I managed to roll with it. I ended up down by those trees you can see beyond the horses, my eye swollen shut.
This view is off the back of the house, where we had a stone patio my father made. On the left side of the picture, you can see a little building. That was a miniature A frame that Dad fixed up for us all to play in. You can see the grass
We always had rabbits, I’m not sure when that started, because it was before my time. All of us were pretty involved with the 4H, and I am sure this was some event or gathering for that. beside me is our faithful dog, Poochie, who “followed” Kel home one day, and was never very far from us kids. If you notice in the background, there is an old yellow horse trailer. Beside that was an old military jeep, and an old grey Chevy pickup. These three vehicles, spawned more adventures in our youthful imaginations than you would believe. The jeep had become a rocket ship, taking us all to outer space, and “our” first landing on the moon. We had African safari’s, explored the arctic circle, and just about anything our minds would dream up. It always amazed me, for a Jeep that was up on cinder block, it sure went a lot of places.
One final picture to add some cooling to the summer heat.
