We're in Kansas, Toto
We used to drive south into Kansas to visit my maiden aunts, who were 94 and 95 at the time. This could also have been taken in their hometown of Onega. Their house looked like this one. It sat across from the train station. Their chicken coop always had a few skinny chickens roosting. And mostly for dinner my Aunts served us - fried chiden. Aunt Babe would thoughtfully chew on her favorite piece, the chicken foot.
In any event, this picture evoked memories of the small towns on the Plains States and a different way of life.
