Six Years Already?

August 14, 2011.  This was my first blog post.

And now, six years have gone by.

I'm not sure I even remember my original hope

for this blog.  That hope shifted to something else

somewhere in 2014, I think.

And now, it's just become a place for me to

exercise my photo skills, if you will.

I no longer think I'll find "that certain someone".

I've been blasted with a few bad comments,

a few choice words,  I've blasted a few of my own

right back at them.  And that's not me.  I don't

enjoy it, and refuse to be engaged in silly

discussions about my choice of photography.

It's not porn, it's art.  It's not meant to offend or entice.

If you don't like it, or it bores you, then move along.

Plenty of other things to see on the 'net.

I'm chuckling to myself ... the backyard was so bare

back then!


“Do what makes your soul shine.”

Hello, Friend!  I've been away from this

for a little while as I've immersed myself

in some genealogy research projects.  

Yes, plural!  

I created a place to post photos of when me 

and my siblings grew up, where I can put comments

and descriptions about what was going on, who was 

in the photo (and sometimes why!)  and just general

comments about the house we grew up in.  Because

my mom is STILL in that house they bought in 1966.

Many things have changed, and it's fun to watch the 

changes through the photos that my dad took.

I'm also researching old family history and putting names

and dates to the old photos I got from my grandmother's

things back in 1995.  She had a lot of old photos, some

of folks I didn't know.  But with a good family tree I can 

usually narrow it down to one or two people ....  :)

It's a great project for an overheated summer when I can't

get outdoors with Sadie.  Hurry up, Fall!  I'm ready!!
