I have been sitting here watching my screen saver. Sherry and I use ‘My Pictures’ as our screen savers. I get so many smiles, and good memories you would not believe. Family pops up, I have scanned a lot of my older stuff.
I get a kick out of remembering Mel & Dar and their families. I kissed Darla thru a clear plastic mask she was wearing, Bill ‘weren’t’ looking. (Darla also cooked dinner for us! delicious!) LOL
One picture popped up of me wearing Slim’s Fur hat, I guess it is Coon skin. And Mel and her Buck!
You’d love Debbie & Gary, I have a picture of me showing Gary ( the Mechanic) my tool rack. LOL. Pictures pop up of the OK Corral.
Oh yes, and just up the road there is me with Rex Allen, I always thought he was cool with his hat more on the back of his head.
I can look across the table and see Sherry’s pictures also. Anyone who eats dinner with us gets a free show of past picture collections. Many times we are asked, “Where (or WHO) is that?
They pop up from Hawaii,at a luau to Alaska and Salmon fishing or panning for gold.
What started this was a shot of Sherry relaxing on the bed reading on the cruise. I got to thinking, we are going on a cruise in December. YEAH! I got to dreaming of looking out over the ocean, I love Blue water. I told the Old Man on my last ship, if I could bring my wife aboard, I would stay in the Navy forever! (BUT I would make that a requirement. Been without her too many times.)
Some of my favorite pictures are of one of my favorite families, the Conrad's. We met these folk in Missouri in 1958/9.
All this from pictures. I can watch even when I am typing. Sherry’s computer keeps on going. The Mayflower, Sherry on the AT.
I see probably 36 states a day, hundreds of family and friends. Each shot brings back memories.
I love to dream. Someone asked me what was the worst trip you ever made? My answer, There has never been a bad trip. You can find something to love everywhere. Great people and God’s nature? Mountains, desert, oceans and Islands are all magnificent.
Seeing the snow covered mountains in the Yukon and Alaska or looking down thru clear water and seeing the ocean bottom thru crystal clear water off shore reef at 125ft, 10 miles off Key West should thrill anyone.
God’s nature is good (Just dream a little dream)!

EASY AND HARD
Letting go is easy………………….. Hanging on is hard.
Pride is easy………………………… Humility is hard.
Excusing oneself is easy………….. Excusing others is hard.
Borrowing is easy…………………… Paying back is hard.
I also enjoy the 1000’s of old car pictures I have stored:
1932 Rockne, Named for the famous Coach from there is town, Newt Rockne, it did not last but a couple years. Newt had the audacity to die before it could be a great success.
