Treasure Chest Thursday - Life on the farm

Treasure Chest Thursday - Life on the farm
 Sometimes the quietest moments can be the most precious... perhaps that is why I am, today, choosing this photo of a quiet moment - a summer of 1956, we had been baling hay, I think. Taking a rest is ok, when you have doing your work well. Here my Dad is resting in the shade of a tree by the barn. I don't recall who the other person was, helping; may be his brother, Toots, actually. I had been, but I went inside, and got my camera.

Families are Forever!  ;-)


  1. this is a great picture. Makes me want to be on the family farm in Quebec.
