A lovely photo of my maternal Grandmother, she was born in 1909. At this tender age she was innocent of all that she would face trying to raise a large family during the depression.

    Thanks Mani, you're right it was tough there where no food banks, just large gardens, wild fruit, & those chickens you don't like.

    Thanks for the Love & the comment Scandi, & yes that is me & my oldest son years ago. I thought I would use that photo after Mani & I talked about raising kids & the sacrifices that we make as parents. I worked two jobs welding & farming & when I got in at night I was sometimes more tired then the children.
