Cowboy with Suspenders

Our Dad/Grandpa (Russell Blood) with his classic suspenders....pausing to rest against the digging shovel as he prepares the Olympia, Washington soil for yet another year of planting a garden. Our parents had always raised their own food as much as possible. The food always tasted better right from the garden. And it was a budget stretcher.
Notice his crossed hands, similar to questionable photos from his early years. It seems to be his label!

This is such a familiar pose. It is as tho he has stopped digging to talk for just awhile. Many of these pictures feel as if we have just had a nice visit about "important stuff".
