Smile Photo- Prissy & Prissier


The last couple of weeks, I’ve been sharing some photos that always make me smile.

Here’s another.

It’s a picture of my cousin, Lona, (on the left) and me. We were probably around two years old when this was taken. One of us is about six weeks older than the other; mum’s the word on who’s older.

This was taken in the yard at my Grandma’s little store in Bacon’s Castle. That’s Grandma’s car in the background. I’m guessing that my Daddy made the adirondack chair we’re standing in; he was famous for those chairs.

These are things I wonder about when I look at this picture and smile:

Why is there a towel or some sort of cloth in the chair under our feet? Maybe to keep our shoes from scratching the paint? I can’t imagine that Grandma or either of our Mamas were that particular about the chair.

And what in the world do you suppose we were laughing at?

I wonder who took the photo. Definitely someone in the family. And I wonder if they posed us with our hands and arms in the same position, or if that was happenstance?

I won’t ever know those answers.  I just know that Lona and I are still sharing laughs all these years later.

Just another picture that makes me smile. Every time.
