A remarkable Brady family find.

August 11th, 2013, 2pm

It was 21°C with broken clouds. The breeze was gentle.

Found under a cupboard in the old family farmhouse in Raleigh Township, Ontario. It was written in my grandmother’s memory book by her soon-to-be husband on her birthday in 1930. If you haven’t guessed, he was a farmer.

I love this glimpse into the sweet, formal nature of their practical partnership.

It reads:

“Dear Madeleine, Cows like pumpkins / pigs like Squash I like you. I do / By gosh. Yours truly, Hilliard Brady”

Lia, ankel, Chris, Chris and 7 others said thanks.
