Great Depression Photos

Many have questioned my choice in mastheads. There seems to be some mourning of the loss of the goat shearing pic. I could put it back if everyone wants that. No big deal. But this photo is of my mother's side of the family, right before the Great Depression. There is only 8 kids in the photo, there was a total of 11 kids.

I love old photos like that. My parents were married in 1932, and Mother had many stories about hard times.

I love the old pics too...we don't have them in our family [lost to fire/flood] and it is neat to be able to see other's faminlies.

I do miss the sheep, but enjoy old pictures too. Besides, it's YOUR blog! :)

My maternal grandparents came from families withy 13 kids and 11 kids. So there are tons of great aunts and uncles.

I like them both... but am partial to the old pics!

I like the sheep; however, I am enjoying the new picture and template (eye candy, Mmmmm).
