This picture of myself as a little girl sure makes me laugh. I don’t remember that day, but since it was a bright and sunny afternoon, I’m guessing it was summertime. I recognize the fenced front yard of the basement home I lived in with my parents and baby sister in Timmins, Ontario. I’m holding a small container, with an enamel dishpan and a saucepan on a low table in front of me. Based on the look on my face (kind of naughty and fiendish at the same time), I’d say that I had probably just served (or tried to serve) mud pies to my little sister. Mom used to tell me that I delighted in making these kinds of “pies” and pretend to feed them to my sister.
Here's another photo taken that day of me with my baby sister. She doesn’t look worse for wear, and I sort of look like I’m wiping my hands to hide the muddy evidence. Oh, the fun and innocence of summertime childhood days!
