Choking the chicken

John Flora and Sally Kent with pets.

This is me with neighbor Sally Kent back around the summer of 1951 or so.

She’s holding my puppy named Spot and I’m choking her chicken. I don’t recall its name. That’s her sister Susan over her left shoulder and I think that’s their mother, Betty Kent, over my right shoulder. Susan and I are the same age, Sally is a year younger. This was in the back yard of my parents’ house at 609 E. Franklin Street in Delphi, Ind.

Life seemed so much simpler then.

And, yes, I colorized the photo.
