BACK IN THE DAY 3....AND THE LAST PHOTO FOR NOW.


"You are someone's reason to smile."


(I think my Father-in-law is the young boy with his hand on the dog but that could also be his older brother and he might be the cap behind the dog.  If I am wrong I would be happy for any of the family to correct me.  It will still be one of my favorites.  Well, actually it is so hard as they are all my favorites and I would like to thank Gregg's cousins for sharing, so that I could borrow them for my blog posts this week.  They are a dear family and one I am proud to be part of.)

  3. Dearest Denise; Your pictures of father-in-law when young was impressed me a lot. As I need to clear my late parents empty house after his 3rd memorial service, I brought back all the pictures he took this spring. Taking pictures was his hobby and lots of sepia color pictures of our happy days. Haha, you might know how I felt seeing them :-)
    Your quotes were also impressive for me, Dear friend.

  5. You look at thee children and they appear to be really tubby. In reality they are wearing many layers of clothing to keep warm. I have photos of myself looking like a little pumpkin.

  22. Just think of all the generations before photography was invented. Think of the countless millions of people throughout history for whom no record of any kind exists and compare that with our behaviour today when we snap everything and everyone in sight.I am sure that children today cannot even imagine it any other way.

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
