Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:

Even farm magazines got into the Christmas spirit a hundred years ago. Since Grandma didn’t write anything specific for today, I thought you might enjoy this old Kimball’s Dairy Farmer cover.

    1. I thought that it was interesting that the magazine cover indicates that the Kimball Company was located in “Waterloo, Iowa, U.S.A.” The U.S.A. at the end makes me wonder if the magazine had an international circulation.

        1. The picture is wonderful. Thanks for sharing it. I can see why it won. You were adorable. I wonder how long the pig stayed in the wagon before jumping out.

    1. Thank you–we had a wonderful Christmas. I’m a little late responding to comments–but I’d like to also like to wish you a Merry Christmas.
