"When I was your age, I had to walk miles in the snow to get to school"
This picture reminds me of a famous tall tale. I wonder if it's still told to children? There are some variations like walking 10 miles each way, uphill in the snow with no shoes etc. Oh and the school was usually on the other side of a river that didn't have a bridge.
I just noticed that my last two posts sort of go together. The old man has fishing poles and the post before it has fish. I also noticed that most people think the old mad in the last post is homeless. I didn't think he was but now I'm wondering.
