The Old Penrose Farmstead Where We Lived 1931-41

Jim and Carolyn (Dwight and Velna's) with Dad (Russell Blood) by the pump that was in the old cow barn yard.  The remnants of the chicken house still stood when this photo was taken in the early 1960s.

Where, oh where is that pump? I need it for my flower bed.

This must be the only picture of the pump and how happy I am to see it. I remember one winter when I didn't drain the well when getting water. and the pump froze. Dad had to build a fire at the base of the pump to thaw it out. Oh, dear. Also I did the stupid thing of allowing my bare hand to freeze to the pump handle. Ouch!
