Donnie Miller, whose family grew up around Judsonia, gave me permission to post this picture from 1946.  He obtained an old National Geographic magazine which had an article in it about Arkansas and the article included this picture.

Strawberry gathering time in AR

Donnie says that the lady in pink was his grandmother, Helen Hubach.  The one in overalls was Donnie's Aunt Emogene Hubach Miller.  Donnie's grandmother looks lovely and makes me wonder if she dressed up for the picture or whether she looked that good every day.  Looks as if she has on high heels and a lovely matching outfit. 

Strawberries used to be a huge crop in the Judsonia and Bald Knob area in Arkansas.  As the article says school was sometimes delayed in order for the children to help in the crops.  Today the crops are mostly pick-your-own.  But they are still delicious!

Thanks, Donnie, for sharing this picture.

I remembered the curvy gal on right.

See this posted in 2012.

No matter most of us have limited memory and it's good to recycle good stuff.

Hopefully, there will be some new comments to make it more interesting.

Charles, thanks.  I have missed you.  I need more time to visit my friend's blogs.

Don, your memory is so sharp.  I forgot having done this picture before.
