Post Christmas?

The Cowboy duds and the scooter look brand as new, must be Christmas Day or soon later.

Where Sheriff Bart got his start?

The kid looks a lot like a young Cleavon Little [Sheriff Bart in "Blazing Saddles"].

Charming

Dave, this is one of the nicest photos I've seen on your site. What lovely kids and they do seem happy.

What a wonderful photo.

Santa Didn't Miss

Despite their probably modest circumstances, these kids were not skipped by the Jolly Old Elf, though at what sacrifice by their families can only be imagined.

Buck Junior will doubtless inherit his sister's scooter, just as the tot studying the ground so intently will one day don the cowboy outfit. And neither will feel ill treated as a result.
