Monochrome Weekly

As tomorrow is Mabon and my Aunt's birthday, I decided posting my Mono today so I won't miss it anymore! :o)



(click to enlarge!)
This is my late dad, Delcio (on the left), around 1950, with his brothers and friends, enjoying a sunny day at their farm's falls. His family used to swim in this waterfalls for ages. literally. My dad used moustache for years, and only left it in the 70s. He looks so healthy and strong here! :o) A lovely photo my mom loves.

What a great swimming hole, and to have it on the family farm is amazing. It's nice to have a family history in one place like that. We've moved so many times it has been hard to get a tie to the land until our cabin on the lake came by. - Margy
