We’ve come a long way baby!!!

As an artist I enjoy painting and photographing segments of rural life. Country living became a new world for me back in the sixties when we moved from Chicago, Illinois to East Tennessee. I want to capture what I now see before country living vanishes… at least in my area!

    Thank the Lord for indoor plumbing !!!
    My dad said they had to learn to whisle, as there was no lock on the door ! lol

    Great shot and treatment, Bob !!!

  • LOL, much truth in what you say George!!! When our family moved to Richland, Indiana in the late sixties, our new home wasn’t so new. For close to a year, we had the “comforts” of an outhouse. I must say, the fresh air kept the lungs pure! I’m glad you dad could whistle, I couldn’t blow between my teeth.

    Wow! People must have been much smaller then. I’d have to crawl to get in there, and I’m short.

  • Lol! Downsizing due to a low budget operation, I guess. Even the half moon on the door is just a quarter moon. Thanks for accepting my submission, regardless of its practical use, lol!
