The prompt this week shows Doris Day and Bert Bacharack playing tennis in 1971.
My photo shows a family in the Jimtown area of Washington County, Kentucky
playing lawn croquet.
Photo from Washington County Kentucky Bicentennial History
This was a well known and welcoming family in the area.
Birth dates in this family photo range from 1876 to 1899.
Croquet courses were popular all over the state of Ky. until just recently.
They were about as popular as horseshoes.
Sports of all kinds were encouraged all over the county around this time to help soothe the wounds of the WW I and other social biggies going on.
Our family still plays croquet occasionally under the shade of our huge oak trees.
go here for more fun stores about whatever.
