The weather is finally cooling down here in SW Virginia, we have only been in the 80's this week and the mornings have been just delightfully cool! I am so thankful!!
Last night while I was sorting through some old photos, I came upon several pictures that had something in common.. Let's see if you can tell what it is! LOL!!
This one is dated 1967. I would have been 6 years old. Check out those high water pants and Pixie hair cut!
This one is dated 1969. 8 years old in this picture. That's my Grandma's doll I was holding, still got on high waters!
This one's not dated but I think I am about 16 in this picture. I remember those shoes. I had to have them for track and they cost $15.00! Dad was appalled! He said I better make them last until I finished high school.
This one is dated 1980. I would have been 19.. Ha! I still have on those shoes!
This one says 1985. That's my sister with me.
Apparently I had a "thing" for that tree! It lived along the creek bank at my Grandparents farm and I spent a great amount of time not only at their farm, but walking the creek banks with my Grandmother who loved to get outside and walk. We would fish, swim, pick up interesting rocks and plants, and maybe grab a pail of sandy dirt for me to take back to the house and make mud pies with. Sometimes we went looking for teaberry plants. We loved chewing them and sometimes Grandma would make tea from the leaves to settle my stomach.
I would give anything to walk along that creek bank today and get my picture made in that tree. Wonder if it's still there?? The farm was sold when my Grandfather passed away and Grandma moved closer to town to be near us.
Just a trip down memory lane today or rather down Kimberling Creek!!
