Saturday Snapshot--February 26, 2011

This meme is hosted by Alyce from At Home With Books

To participate in Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken. Photos can be old or new, and can be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. All Alyce asks is that you don't post random photos that you find online.


In my first year of teaching I had twins in my class. They are now both grown up and teachers themselves. Their family owns a farm near our school and it's where we go to get our pumpkins and Christmas tree every year. They have a wonderful corn maze and old farm equipment. This year they had added this school "wagon" from 1901.

Wow, 'cars' sure have come a long way. It looks like it would make for a fun and bumpy ride.

What a wonderful old wagon! I'd love to take a ride in it. The farm sounds like a great place to visit!

That wagon is in remarkably good shape. What a find.

That wagon is lovely! At first I thought maybe it was something Amish.

Trish, Jlshall--They have a wonderful plow horse that pulls a hay cart around at pumpkin time!

Laurel-Rain--I liked that the school bus was yellow!

K., Alyc, Bev, and DIzzy--The farm owners do a great job of either finding vehicles in great repair or getting someone to fix them

Wow, can you imagine riding to school in that?

Aths said...

1901! That is such a long time ago! It's so wonderful to see vehicles from so long ago!

Aths--I am always amazed at what great shape the old stuff is in
