This picture in my family album is interesting me me as an adult. I was a smiling little girl, getting to take my shoes off and holding my baby doll. You can see my mother's sweet smile as she has her arm over my dad's shoulder. I think my dad must of been dead tire in this picture and mother knew it. But he was still willing to take us on this day trip. He was such a hard working man, and so funny....but when you look at photos of him he always had a serious look. He was a storyteller bar none. Either had me on the edge of my seat with a tall tale, or laughing till my sides hurt with something funny or "Silly: This post today is about "Silly".
When I was just about this age, he taught me this silly little ditty.
"One Zip, Two Zip
Little Ziggy Zan.
Bob tailed Dominecker
Tee, Toe, Tan."
All those years of reciting that little poem, It wasn't until I was an adult that I found out a Dominecker was a breed of chicken. So when I found this picture today at the Thrift Store I had to have it.
It had a dark green matting, and wood frame but I couldn't get a good picture of it and wanted you to be able to read the message with my new "Bob Tailed Dominecker"!! So true isn't it?
Do you remember any of the silly little poems you learned as a child?
