Sepia Saturday Sepia Saturday 163 - Lorraine and the Snow Man

Lorraine (Skibbe) Clark  1938, Chicago, Illinois
This is a picture of my mother at age 4 outside her family home in Chicago, Illinois.  My mother spent her youth enjoying the snow including ice skating, skiing and playing in the snow.  Perhaps that is why she lives where it doesn't snow.

Look Mommy I made it all by myself too!

Did she make that snowman all by herself? Welcome to Sepia Saturday!

Nice picture of your Mum. It's almost as if the windows in the house are open. But that's probably optical illusion.

Fun photo! Now that I see it, I am kind of surprised that there weren't any other snowmen shown on Sepia Saturday.

I agree. Snow is a wonderful thing when remembered across the years, but not quite as pleasant when it is laying outside. Lovely photograph.

A wonderful smile (your mother's not the snowman's).

Fine photo, The snowman puts the one my wife built this year to shame.

Good for her if she had the common sense to move to a milder climate.
