This is one of the kerosene lanterns my dad had around our place in Kalae, Molokai when we were kids. One never knew when we would loose power and he was always prepared for it. We had cows in order to have milk (in trying to feed 6 children on a shoestring budget) and dad would milk the cows twice a day-before and after work. Hence, the name, John's Farm. Dad labeled everything! Even his rubber boots. I find myself doing that a lot too-labelling everything.
Now that we are moving back to this home that I grew up in, I am taking this lantern with me, of course. Not sure where it will 'live' as it is now a decorative memorabilia rather than an object with function.
Join us as a group of us (yes-there are many of us!) from around the world post our shadow shots over at Shadow Shot Sunday 2. Entertain your muse and be amused by stopping by to see what others have posted!
(We are in the midst of preparing to move back to my island home of Molokai this May. Exciting, terrifying, happy, sad all at the same time as I love New Mexico as much as I love Molokai. But, my husband and I and family are ready for this move and excited. There is so much to do in a very short amount of time, so I hope my fellow bloggers forgive me if I don't leave comments at your site or am sporadic about it. The next few months will be pretty crazy for us.)
