Do you Remember?


This is gonna date me for sure ~ 
But do you remember when the man with the pony came around the 
neighborhood and you got to get your picture taken?
This is me ~ I am not sure how old I was...
... but I do remember that day... the hat, the chaps,
 ...even that cold sore on my bottom lip (urggg)!

Oh the Days...

I surely do remember, well I don't remember but I have a picture of both me and my DH on ponies from that era. Pretty cute!

I don't remember but it is probably because I grew up in the middle of a prairie. You look SO cute!!

This didn't happen in Missouri.
But what a cutie cowgirl you were.
The picture is priceless.

How cool is that
very smart man to have a business like that (o:
would it be against the law to go around a neighborhood now and take digital pictures....
come to think of it when we were in Mexico this last summer...everyday there was a guy and his wife? that came around the pool area with ...one day a monkey...one day parrots...we forgot to go purchase pictures before we left. I bet he makes OK money doing that. (o:

Back to the pony....I wished for a horse every year until I was old enough to know better (and probably after that) when I blew out my BD cake candles(o:

M.L. @ The House of Whimsy said...

So, So Cute!!! Somehow I missed out, but my siblings all have one. And I'm pretty sure I'm not older than you!!!
How fun that you got your photo taken with Mark M. He has been on a show we watch (She's Crafty) a couple of times. Can I have your autograph? Hee-Hee!
Take care,
Mary Lou

M.L. @ The House of Whimsy said...

What a dork...I meant...pretty sure I'm not YOUNGER than you!!! Sorry, I had the thought (older siblings) on the brain.
Hope we're still friends. :-D

My husband and his brother have that same pony picture! I guess I lived on the poor side of town....:)

Colleen - the AmAzINg Mrs. B said...

Yes, I remember. I even remember the red hat with the black stitching! But, sadly, I don't know what ever happened to the photo :-(
You were {and are} adorable!

The Strawberry Mallard said...

Yes!!!!!!!!
I do and rode that baby well.oh what a wonderful memory !
((((smiling a great big cheee enchilada smile her )))))))

Just Breathe said...

I never remember anyone coming around with a pony. I do however remember a guy who would come around with a cart to sharpen knives and scissors.

Marie said...

We were never that lucky! All we had was the milkman, breadman, fishman and butcher's cart . . . oh and the fullerbrush man and avon lady. A pony man would have been great!!!

Deb said...

Secondhandrose said...

Together We Save said...

Wonderful picture!!

heartfelt living said...

I don't remember those times but I have heard about it. You sure were a cutie. What little girl wouldn't love to sit on a pony for a picture! Too Cute!!!

Mags said...

Awwww...you little cowgirl, you. Too cute!

Blessedmom's Simple Home said...

I remember this, but for some reason never got my picture taken with them. I guess it might be because you had to pay something, and my dad took so many photos that my mom wasn't about to pay someone else to take them.
Blessings,
Marcia

Just a little something from Judy said...

We did not have a man on a pony that came to our home. That is the cutest little picture though. We did have a milkman who brought bottles of milk to our home:)

Diana said...

So cute!!!

Pam said...

That's new to me, don't remember that ever happening. You were just one cute cowgirl! Great pic!

Amy said...

We weren't lucky enough to have that but I would of loved it for sure. My girls had plenty of those rides though!!

Creative Breathing said...

Would you mind emailing it to me at

I have posted my pony picture too Carrie. I remember that day and how I thought the pony and I had a special bond. Poor tired pony probably couldn't wait to go home. Lol
