Today’s Top 5

Tired

That is one tired youngster. Have to believe it is the end of the day, and he can't wait for the photo session to be over so he can hit the sack.

Dairyman's Hands

If only this young man had been able to get information to help his dry and cracked fingers with one click of a mouse button. I'm sure they had some remedy in 1941.

Also, some relatives had the same floor covering when I was little, but theirs didn’t look as new as what we see in the photograph. The pattern nowadays reminds me of digital art made with very large pixels.

His eyes

Beautiful. Hope he had blue eyes.

Grooming

Combed his hair all night with a pillowcase.
