Sunday Dinner, often with a number of friends and family. Chicken and dumplings, fresh tomatoes, green beans cooked with new potatoes.

The kids were shooed outside to play, happy shouts, bare feet, rope swings and hop scotch scrathed in the dirt.

Menfolk gathered on the porch, maybe a baseball game on the radio, or just to visit before the work week began. Possibly taking turn about cranking the ice cream freezer.

W0men and older girls in the kitchen, dishes washed and put away, left overs covered with a clean table cloth for those who might need a snack.

Good times, good memories. What ever happened?
