Family-Prom Day-3 Generations


I love this picture. Taken outside my place on my Daughters Graduation.   Both my Gramma and my Mother gone now 😦

moms words: me and some of my family outside my daughter’s home, just before Jess left for the Prom. There are 3 generations here, but my daughter took the photo, so she wasn’t in it, and I didn’t think at the time to get a 4 generation pic of us all together. Jess and her great grandma aged 94, my oldest Grandson Shane, my little sister and me, holding the camera of course 🙂 Didn’t realize how dark my prescription lenses of my glasses go, when out in the sunlight. (they are those transitions lenses that go back to normal when indoors

Patio Years Ago


I loves moms garden. She was an avid gardener her whole life and this is how I remember her place. So beautiful.. buzzing with bees , butterfly’s everywhere.. raccoons, squirrels, hummingbirds.

Moms words: this is a photo of our front patio area, taken many years ago, before we had our Labs and before the “online addiction” began and arthritis set in : ) and was really into gardening, especially lots of annuals, as can be seen here.

After the arrival of the Labs, we now just plant mainly perennials which seem to survive anything, plus the dogs are older and don’t wander into the garden area anymore. But we focus a lot on planter tubs and hanging baskets now anyway.
