I'm Taking the Day Off

But I wanted to share a very special picture with you.  It's one that is from an album that my dad gave to each of us for Christmas many years ago.  All of the pictures were taken by him and he found appropriate prose or poetry to tell the story of the photo image.  It's a wonderful album and a cherished treasure.

Today just happens to be the first day of Autumn and Iowa is totally gorgeous in the Fall.  I don't remember the exact location but this photo was taken somewhere near my aunt's farm.  The photo is old as it was taken sometime in 1960.

Enjoy your first day of Autumn and thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,



  1. What an absolute treasure....
    Likewise, I treasure anything my father wrote to me in his own handwriting. It's his essence.
    Thank you for sharing.

    1. Thanks, Barb. It is a treasure. All the photos in the album are his. He found prose or poetry to complement the photo. When he couldn't find anything, he wrote his own.
