Sepia Saturday challenges bloggers to share family history through old photographs.
This week’s Sepia Saturday photo of a sweet family group comprised of Dad, Dog, and Boy inspires the imagination. What is that little cowboy thinking of doing with that lasso?
And what or whom was my cousin aiming at with that bow and arrow? He was grinning, but I’m not sure I would trust that grin.
Nevertheless, wasn’t Glenn cute in that Hopalong Cassidy cowboy outfit? Probably the only thing cuter though was the cowGIRL version that my cousin Bobbie got that Christmas.
Bobbie loved this costume. But she has one sad memory of that Christmas when they came to visit our grandparents. The house was heated by an oil furnace centrally vented through the floor between the living room and dining room. It was a rather sizeable floor vent. As kids we liked to stand on it and feel the warmth blowing up our clothes.
That vent could get hot though as Bobbie learned all too well. At some point while running through the house – maybe chasing Glenn – Bobbie dropped her little red plastic gun on the vent. And there it melted.
Hopalong over to Sepia Saturday to see what stories and photos the others have lassoed today.
