Today’s photo prompt from Susannah Conway at April Love 2018 is: Smile.
Since I’m visiting my mom downstate in Lower Michigan, I had to truly ponder. What photo to take? My mom didn’t look like a willing victim (err, subject). No nieces, nephews, brothers or other stray smilers looked like they would stop by.
The perfect answer suddenly popped in this brain: The mountain man who lives in my mom’s basement!
Meet the mountain man that has lived in my mom’s basement for a long, long time. Dad dragged him home from the Ozarks back in the 60’s or 70’s, along with some other interesting-looking characters.
He met the carver back in Missouri and carried the wooden guy home in the back of our station wagon. Dad LOVED to collect all sorts of oddities!
Now I have something even more interesting to tell you.
Mom has TWO mountain men living in her basement!
She’s got her handful with these two wooden fellas.
If you don’t watch them carefully, they collect a LOT of dust!
That did make you smile, right? Yours is the smile I’m imagining right now. 🙂
