Just when I had given up on Memory Monday, I cleaned out my desk and discovered a stack of prints I had completely forgotten about. A bit over 20 years ago, in late July 2003, the Big Guy and I rented a car and drove over to the coast near Fort Ross State Park to stay in our then-favorite little […]
Spending the past week up in the mountains of Lassen County got me remembering some long-ago camping trips to similar spots a bit further south, near Frenchman Reservoir in Plumas County, back in the 1980s. Unfortunately, I can’t seem to find any photos from those trips, so instead I went digging into my photo album and found these prints, from […]
My first five images today are from our family slide collection, shot in approximately 1971 and shared previously back in January 2018. The remainder are prints showing Fort Bragg’s Noyo Harbor in 1967. My sister was kind enough to mail them to me awhile back, and I kept forgetting to publish them, until now!
Here is the final group of family photos that we brought home this past June. They include childhood portraits of the Big Guy (below right) and his older brother (below left), as well as a snapshot of their cousin Charlie showing off his trophy trout. I feel so lucky to have become part of this close and loving family who […]
For both the Big Guy and myself, our parents are growing older; and while they’re still mostly healthy, any time we can spend together with them becomes ever more precious. As their adult children now past the midpoint of our own lives, we cherish and appreciate all the more those memories and stories our parents are able to share with […]
Since we’re about to celebrate Independence Day, July 4th, in the U.S., I thought today I would share another handful of images from my vintage 1940s photo album. These are all black-and-white prints, with many of them professionally shot and sold as souvenirs. That’s the case with the pictures I’ve chosen for today; along with a few general views of […]
When it comes to our TV, these days if the Big Guy isn’t watching a big-money bass fishing tournament, he’s tuned into the Motor Trend channel, watching the road tripping hosts of Roadkill and Roadkill Garage, or the technical talk on Engine Masters. So I’ve become used to seeing “ugly” cars in various states of repair, and this week’s images […]
I’m pretty sure most of this week’s images from the Korea albums were shot in Central California. In fact, I’m a little embarassed about how long it took me to realize the photo below shows part of the Yosemite Valley, with El Capitan on the left and Half Dome in the distance. Some of the colors on these pictures had […]
