    Hey, here's another cute dog! But this time the grass is nicely cut, and there is even a well-trimmed hedge. And, near the hedge, might that be “Grandpa” wearing a fedora?

    Behind and to the left of the handsome blond boy [who is wearing a really neat tie] there is what appears to be a croquet stake. I well recall many fun times playing croquet in all the seasons of my life. I should bring down our croquet set from a closet upstairs.

    Though, I suppose I need not hurry about that. It would be too challenging to play croquet in a yard with a foot or more of snow on it – and I'm not going to shovel off a large enough portion of our yard! But if my Colonel wants to . . .

    1. If my Charlotta thinks I am going to grab my shovel and clear enough of the yard to play croquet, she has been drinking too much of her pickle juice - again.

  2. This photo should be easy to find a home. Check this out: http://www.mylife.com/c-1158966266

  3. And behind the gentleman in the background is a clothesline. Whatever happened to Iggy?

    1. Hi Maybelline, Iggy has had a bum shoulder and he had surgery on it two weeks ago.. I have not heard from him since before his surgery. I am sending good thoughts his way everyday..:)

  4. I bet the guy was watching all that was going on not knowing he would be preserved in the photo forever. It is a well taken photo.


  5. He also has a website for his art: michaelholter.com

    I used the contact on that website to email him early this AM...time will tell as to whether he is interested.

  6. What a great photo.
