This week’s slides are a somewhat hodge-podge collection from late 1971 and early 1972, all stamped with the same processing date of June 1972. I don’t know the dates they were actually shot, but I’ve mostly tried to arrange them in order according to the small numbers printed on the slide frames. I have no idea what my gift was […]
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! After watching this episode of Visiting, I’ve learned that Armenian Christmas is actually celebrated on January 6. Huell is very lucky to get an invitation to celebrate the holiday with a wonderful family — and he’s on hand to watch as quite a lot of truly mouthwatering food is being prepared for the event. In […]
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! This week I have a few images from my very first Christmas; after looking through these slides, I only wish there were more of them. Although I don’t have any actual memories from this particular Christmas, I do remember some of the items pictured — at least those that were still around a few years […]
My images this week date from 1956 and 1957. Although most of them were labeled with dates, I’m not always sure of the locations — like my first three photos, which seem to have been shot at the same spot. I’d love to think they were in the area of the Nimbus Dam (those hills in the background look very […]
Happy Independence Day to everyone in the US! I hope your holiday is safe and fun.
This week I thought I’d share a few family pictures; some of these I’ve shared before, but I think they look better this time around! I’ve arranged them in more or less chronological order to show some of the changes we’ve gone through over the years.
Here’s another great seasonal episode that I’ve only recently discovered. The Merry TubaChristmas concert is an ongoing tradition; it’s been an annual event since 1975, and this year it was held on December 2. And as Huell remarks early in the episode, if this doesn’t get you into the Christmas spirit, nothing will! Huell attends the annual holiday concert at […]
I like to share Christmas-themed episodes during this time of year, and this is one that nearly escaped my attention, as I had no idea what “Nacimientos” meant until I took a closer look. I think this is a wonderful tradition, and I hope you’ll enjoy Huell’s visit, originally aired in 1999, as much as I did. In this holiday […]
I’ve never featured this 2004 episode of California’s Gold in which Huell visits the Eckes’ poinsetta ranch in Encenitas, but I did link to it a couple of years ago. After spotting some blue and orange poinsettia plants for sale in the supermarket this morning, I thought it would be good to take another look at where and how these […]
