This is one of my favorite photos that used to sit within four black corners inside mom's big two inch thick leather bound family album.
Four generations of Barker girls sitting there on grandma's davenport. That's what grandma Piggott called the couch (took me a while to figure out what the heck she was calling a davenport, the porch or the couch).
From left to right: Esther Eleanor Henderson Barker (great-grandma), aunt Carolyn holding cousin Penny, Blanche Theora Barker Piggott (grandma), and mom holding little ole' me.
See the open door behind the davenport? That was grandma's bedroom. She was a widow for a long time and when I was the only grandkid spending the night at her house in Bloomington, Idaho that is where I slept, right next to grandma.
Her and I were buds. She made a killer banana split. I remember sitting in front of that heat vent that you see behind the sofa a time or two with a green plastic oblong shaped bowl from Dairy Queen that held this awesome banana split homemade with love.
Then she had to go and get married and I was booted from that bedroom. Took me awhile to get over that one.
