I found this under a tall tree. When was this taken? All the good ol’ days captured in one shot. The photo is mounted on construction paper and laminated as to seal in the memories.

Freddy?

My dad bought some property in this little town called Iola. There was an old barn and farmhouse on the property and I have found lots of cool antiques in the barn. I was helping to take the old sheet-rock off the walls and this fell next to me in the biggest bedroom.
