Little Sisters

Here is a picture of Jo and I at a picnic long, long ago. I love the overalls and bandana neckerchiefs. Joey was probably only about 18 months or so - it was probably near the time my brother was born. They were only 19 months apart in age. She always said that she could remember something about that picnic - that no one remembered to bring paper plates and that our grandpa, who was a salesman for Thomas & Clark, who sold cookies and crackers, got some cardboard boxes and used them for the food. I don't remember that at all but she always insisted she did. This picture is tinted with oils - there was no color photography back in the old days! (Click to enlarge)
