Memories of Abraham
This picture was taken on Thanksgiving Day 1982, the day after Abraham the Mule came to live with us! Yes, that is the future Goatherd astride the noble mule! Mother is at the right of the picture, showing off her newest equine (check out her super-styling early 80s hair cut!) The Grandmother is at the left -- and almost 30 years later she looks nearly the same! My beloved grandfather is the handsome gentleman in the feisty black fur hat . . . and now you know where I get my unique sense of style! I remember my mother's excitement over purchasing Abraham, although I was still young enough that I cannot say I actually recall this photo being taken. This was the start of many happy years with Abraham!
