When it came time to do a post for today's
I did not have a photo to use.
As I was looking online for some ideas and begging my muse to help me come up with an idea, it happened.
I wished that I had a photo of my grandparents farm where I had so much fun while growing up.
I remembered that I had a sketch in my sketchbook of the farm
Lone Oak Farm
and had the capability to make that sketch into a sepia photo.
This sketch shows the farm where my father grew up and where he lived when he married my mom.
It shows the Lone Oak, house, the barn and the root cellar which was my favorite place.
My gm kept the milk there and we made cheese and butter and cottage cheese.
I can still smell that root cellar and it will probably remain the most favorite spot of my entire childhood.
I loved to spend time in that barn too.
My gf would let me ride the old mule as he would plow.
I could hardly get my legs across his wide back.
My mom was scared for me to ride that mule, but no way was I gonna give it up.
Go here for more Sepia Saturday
Check out some of the great posts and maybe next week you may decide to join us.
Beautiful, beautiful, baby.
Sweet 16 today.
Love you Papaw and Mamaw
