Todays's Photo Challenge Subject: Something Old Fashioned. I took the picture of the dining room in one of the buildings located at the Historic Plantation Farm located in Baton Rouge, LA.

That is used to manually swing the ceiling fan over the table of food to keep the flies away. ewww...I think every generation deals with their own difficulties. Life was simple but hard back then. In our generation, life is simple but hard. We just have different challenges.
