Can you imagine living here a LONG time ago...Maybe some kids playing in the yard...maybe a Dog and Kitty.....I bet it was a nice house a long time ago..People laughing and Mama cooking in the Kitchen and Papa out in the field doing Farm Chores.
I always try to imagine what it might have been like living in some of the houses like this when they were a home with Families.
In the South a lot of the homes have what they would call a Summer Kitchen and that is where they would cook and Bake in the Hot Months of Summer.
The story I heard about this House was that a Lady and her Children lived here and didn't have a way to heat it in the winter so she would go out and rip boards off the summer kitchen and burn them for heat for her Children.
It is really kind of sad when you think about the years before when they had enough money to feed their Children and keep them warm inn the winter.
Maybe they toiled all day picking Cotton in a field like this one
Now they use machines for everything..they no longer have to work picking cotton like their ancestors did.
Also makes me wonder what all some of the Beautiful old cotton Fabric that I have from the 1930's went through to get to be so pretty...I think it would be worth researching to find out.
So much for the old days when People were healthy and I think maybe even happier..What do you think?
