We often do look back at past times with a sense of longing and a feeling that life was somehow better. The photograph on this artist trading card is of my father when he was a little boy. He lived on a farm with his mother, father and sister. He attended a one-room schoolhouse and often tells us stories of playing in creeks on his way to and from school and sledding and skiing on hills near his home. The reality was that his family had very little money and had to rely on the land for their living. His parents rented a farm when he was little and inherited the elderly brothers who owned it so his mother had two extra mouths to feed and attend to as well as her own family. This is my entry for this week's Think Monday, Think ATC challenge.
