  1. What a great picture! Not only can she chop wood, she can look good doing it!

  2. Great picture!

  3. I like her little grin. You can tell she is having a bit of fun

  4. Love this pic! What a great shot and a view into the past!

  5. I’m guessing from her grin and the way she’s dressed that she wasn’t actually doing any chores, but rather posing for an amusing photo.

    But… I’ve heard that Aunt Bessie was quite a character, so I could easily be wrong!

    Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comments!
