Memory Monday, Week 145

This week I have the last few slides showing some of our pets during 1978 through 1982. Sascha, who was part Siberian husky, came home with us when she was a fluff ball of a puppy with beautiful brown eyes. She spent most of her life outdoors, in our back yard; but she happily shared the property with Hondo, one […]

Memory Monday, Week 144

I’m always delighted to find photos of our various dogs from the 1970s and 1980s. Penny came to us as a tiny puppy from a pet store called Fin, Feather, and Fur in late 1978 or early 1979. I know that she was slightly less than a year old when we took her on our 1979 road trip to Canada. […]

I still miss those dogs deeply, but […]

Memory Monday, Week 112

I’m taking a break this week from the slides; instead, I’m looking back at a few old prints from the 1970s that were among some of the first photographs I ever shot. I’m so glad now that I still have these, since they depict the area around the house where I grew up and spent so many hours playing. The […]
