Ma and Pa

Submitted for the PG 101 Brown Theme
I found this pair of comfortable looking old rockers on the front porch of a home on the main street of a small Iowa town. I'm thinking Ma and Pa may have spent - may still spend - time there watching the goin's-on in town on Saturdays and greeting their friends as they pass by.
