Would you like to help me name a couple characters? These two women will need the same last name. They reside on a remote cattle ranch in Northern Alberta Canada. Present day.
EARLY 60’s Rancher’s Wife…
The woman of the house was such a jolly soul, I imagined she and Mrs. Clause would get along just fine. Rosy cheeks, robust middle, salt and pepper hair. She wore a cheery yellow apron with orange and brown sunflowers embroidered all along the hem. Helping me remove my bundles of clothing she scooted me into a mismatched chair at her rustic farm table. I rubbed my hand on the surface admiring the age and character of the piece. My mother had raised me with an appreciation for antiques, otherwise known as rich folks worn out junk. She called it rustic, some called it primitive, I called it home.
YOUNG 20’s newlywed, married to the son of the lady above:
Scott’s bride was tall and plain. A simple beauty. Clear skin, long straight tawny hair pulled into a low pony tail. She wore a button up blouse and jeans. Round toed leather boots peeked from under her pant legs. Conservative, a hard working woman. Carlin and I believed you could tell a person by the boots they wore. In some cases that had to be amended to the shoes they wore but that was a whole different class. I liked this girl already.
