Mom and the House

Here's my Mom, taken sometime in the 1960s, I would think, probably somewhere in Manitoba. This is one of my favourite photos of Mom; she looks beautiful and the house in the background is very evocative. Even the damage to the negative adds a little something, although I do wish I were skilled enough to repair it. (It looks a lot better now that it did before I took a stab at correcting it, but it's far from finished.)

Happy Birthday, Mom!

Such a great image. This is taken in front of the "shack" that Uncle Dave and. Aunt Blanche lived in until they built a new house. They farmed near Dodsland,Sask. Bill Turk took us over to the old building this past Oct. It really has deteriorated.
