Fashion Friday

I almost did it again - forgot that it was Friday. OMG, a week flies by so quickly anymore - I cannot believe it. These two ladies are not all dressed up like the ladies that came before us, but we don't look too bad. I am with my sister, Jo, who has come over to Ft. Madison from Chillicothe to visit on a Sunday. Both of us are dressed in pants and blouses with nothing outstanding about our attire. About the time we moved our family away from the home town, Jo had started losing weight. I hadn't seen her for quite a while (back then it seemed like there was such a long distance between the towns and now it's nothing) and when I did, I could hardly believe how different and how wonderful she looked. She never did gain her weight back and was always a classy looking lady. I miss her - she left us way too early. You can see the hill in our back yard with the inevitable clothesline and our cinderblock fireplace. We used to do a lot of burning - everyone did. The little fellow coming up the hill is Bill, our son. Must have been a warm day in the spring judging from the fact that there weren't many leaves to be seen on the trees across the creek.
