every picture tells a story


Maybe I could get my big sister to tell me this one.

I bet we had Mom’s homemade pumpkin pie from that pumpkin.  I can remember my mom cooking the insides of the carved pumpkins as part of the Halloween tradition.

Looks like it was nice sunny 1950's October day.  The pumpkin was probably the reason for the picture that day.

Today the picture’s story tells me so much more.

Happy Halloween

Are you the little guy?

yes, that's my older brother and sister. I would not be surprised if mom put our sister between us so we didn't start punching each other. I think we get along better now than back then but I might be biased since I was usually on the losing end.

Very frugal of your mother. Usually by the time pumpkins get to carving size, they are a little stringy (pie pumpkins are much smaller). I do usually cook the seeds form the jack-o-lanterns, though.

I love old family photos. They all hold a story.

That was dad's truck. He went through a few work trucks. But at the time you never think this falling apart thing is going to be a classic someday.

Frugal yes. That was a common trend for the generation that went through the great depression.
