  1. I love the nicknames you gave the unidentified pair of “moppets” in the last CDV that you shared! You certainly got their personalities perfectly! ROFL! I know you are also probably drooling over the first one with the child with the chickens…I know how much you love them! I looked at the ownership below it and I was honestly surprised you DIDN’T own it yourself!

      1. I don’t know if they did, but it is so wonderful to see their personalities in a photo from this time in history! Thank you for sharing!
