    We have a copy of the “run away that is signed by the little boy who is now a n adult. It is one of our favorite treasures. Bob and Nancy Blackman”

  • Appreciate this cover more now, knowing the background details Rockwell would add or re-work to make it perfect. In the end though, it’s the trust shown in the boy’s body language and state trooper’s that tells you he’s having a talk with this child and will get him back home safely shortly after this.

    The diner’s manager looks like he’s listening, possibly telling of a time he ran away (wasn’t worth it) and backing up what the state trooper was telling him.

    Thank you for all the details and observations–much fun reminiscing in Rockwell’s ‘past lane.’
