Postcard Friendship Friday (02/13)

“MOUNTAIN OX SLED-- A Blue Ridge mountaineer hauls fodder from the fields on his primitive sled, which oxen drag over the roads without benefit of wheels. North Carolina hill people retain the flavor and atmosphere of their distinctive country.”

We are so blessed to have access via the Internet to so many old images that we would otherwise never see.

Happy Friday. How is your recovery going?

Wow, look how far we've come with all our fancy machines for farming now. Amazing because this really wasn't that long ago. Great picture!
