Here is a proud mother with her two kids standing by the family’s car. She loved her kids, but more likely, her 1941 Chevy Special Deluxe. Why? Because she stood outside her car to have that smoke. Can’t risk a hole in the mohair now can we?
I’m betting that dad took the photo on a family vacation. This particular year, they didn’t go to Mammouth Cave or Rock City, like years past. No. Dad wanted to surprise them with their first-ever Durden Family Arborvitae Tour, c. 1942. After 1,100 miles and just as many stops to see all sorts of shrubs, it was also not surprisingly the last Durden Family Arborvitae Tour.
