Shadow Shot Sunday...I'll git the chair...



Shall we git started...
I'll git the chair Ma
you git the pan
you know
the one with the lil' hole in the bottom...
these peas sure grew good this year
s' cause we planted early
and they got that late snow
remember...
think the onions 'll do good this year...
don't know, but they sho was good last year
only got two more quarts of tomaters
better plant another row of them bigguns...
they sho was good last year...
hope we get the heat of an evenin'
nuttin'l grow if we don't.
sho is nice sittin' in the shade...
I got a hankerin' to sit here a spell
hear the cicadas
that meadowlark's back in the walnut grove agin...
don't think I'll mow the ditch this year...
heard the bobwhites a workin out yonder
I'm gonna git that mole this year ya know...
Shall we have chicken n dumplins fer supper...
I'll git the chair Ma...
you git the pan...

you know, the one with the lil' hole...



Try not to be confused, it's Sunday in Australia...but I wanna play now, which means it's Saturday in my part of the world. You can play too, just contact Hey, Harriet...she'll show ya the way...

what a lovely shot. I've so enjoyed reading your past posts as well. I love the stories about your houses you've lived in. That's really all the house we need, isn't it? And your gorgeous photos of the plains in winter are just wonderful..

Hot Fudge said...

Your shot is so beautiful that it almost makes me wish I was back in the snow. Then I come to my senses.

I felt quite nostalgic for you when I saw the houses you grew up in - it was absolutely delightful.

Raven said...

This is a beautiful shot it aspires peacefulness. It's a reminder to take time out and have a rest - well not in the snow!

arlene said...

I dearly love your word story/poem. I know those people. Such a peaceful image; thank you for it. I just found your blog and this is the first thing I read. I'll be back!

Jackie said...

I agree with Paisley, I love anything written in dialect. It brings you straight to the place and plops you down in a feeling.

Glad that you've got a shadow shot despite the snow..and hope its spring soon :D

Very nice -- the poem and the photo. I like the word (or should I say the pronunciation) 'git'. ;-)

I especially like your header too.

The Summer Kitchen Interiors said...

Oh Sharon....dare we dream of late summer and shelling peas? It IS a lovely thought! Enjoyed your poem...and love the shadow!

Jill said...

As always---great shot and poem!

PJ said...

A fabulous photograph and the poem really tugged at my heart. Happy SSS!

Pagan Sphinx said...

Oh, gorgeous! I love creative photos with chairs or benches. This is a stunner. Nice work!

Sara Chapman in Seattle, USA said...

Great shadow, here and the header photo. But kind of melancholy, because the ice and snow can't be good for continued life in chair or bike. Don't cut your hair unless you are SURE you want to, is my opinion.

Twinkle Star Art said...

Beautiful SSS of the old chair. Looks a bit cold to sit ya tush on though. Cute poem :)

Gallery Juana said...

I really like this poem. This kind of poem is really hard to pull off, but you did it with great success! Lovely shadow shot chair too.
