I was poking through the many pictures my cousin has added to our family tree site and came upon this one, a photo I had never seen. I'm glad I now have it, because it reminds me of all the years I milked cows.
It must have been taken in 1991 when Pauline, her husband, and their youngest daughter visited us. That's my mom's pickup truck parked in front of the mobile home in which she lived (our renters live there now).
For years I milked by hand, but by the time this picture was taken I was using bucket milkers. Cliff built that cart for me to transport all my stuff to the barn.
I never, ever wore shoes at home. The only reason I wear shoes these days is the curse of plantar fasciitis.
Yep, that's the real me. In 1991.
Thanks for the laugh, Pauline. When Cliff gets up, he's going to love this!
