When you don't have boots for snow always count on a Mom to make you a pair . Do you think kids today would wear these plastic bags and be happy to get to walk in snow . I doubt it but they were like gold to me . I could keep my feet dry and get to barn . No name brands back then and the cows didn't care either :-) Hopefully giving some of the kids today what life was like and we were happy without material things .

    Phil I hate to ask can you do anything with this one to bring it clearer ? I love this photo . The barn and Chicken coop in background , It just seems not as bright as it could be or something . Thank You and I understand if you can't :-)

    O.k., no problem, of course there is a limit of what I can do when a lot of the detail is not there. May have been overexposed because of the snow and the age had faded it. I can improve the contrast but I don't like to fix up faces too much because if I do, it may not look like the person anymore. Best I can do is improve the contrast mostly and see what happens !!~

    I don't think you could get them out the door wearing plastic bags. Cows didn't care if you had mismatched mitts, 2 layers of pants, & multiple layers of coats & sweaters either.
    You sure do look happy!

    Your right walksoft kids would tell you they would rather die than be seen in bags on feet today . You can see by all my footprints in area I thought they were the greatest !
