I set in front of this computer and see such wonders in modern technology. In the quiet of our motor home, as Sherry sits and reads I see pictures as they pass by in a random slide show of the 36000+ pictures of our life, they are stored here. I smiled as I saw me feeding a deer in Texas:
Lake Medina, sorely in need of water has hundreds of these deer around.
And I thought about a Kiss on the San Antonio Riverwalk that Jack jr. caught.
(We couldn’t kiss good without laughing that day! we were having a good time with our sons)
Naturally I thought of Paula and John. It was our joy to meet just south of San Antonio. John is a very personable Rancher, they make a neat couple.
She is just as sweet in person as she appears on her blog . We wrote a book together, inspired by her relationship with a large Land Turtle she called Toby. The book is a Children’s book called ‘Toby’s Tales’.
At Paulinescountrytales http://pl78064.blogspot.com/ she writes about life on the ranch. She also writes some cute poems, they are featured in the book.
(Shirl always make a booklet of pictures for all the family)
This pops up and I remember family, sister Shirl and Jim at one of our family Christmas times. Jim is easy to miss after his passing. WE were out of the news pretty well when we lived in GITMO. During that time Shirl sent Sherry the Magazine where Bert Reynolds did the nude centerfold (Of course I made her burn it! )
Next more travel pictures:
We made a trip to Dodge city (My fav. coffee cup came from this trip, yeah I am still using it chip and all)
Site of the OK City Bombing Not long after the debris was removed. Hundreds of Memorials attached to the fencing.
I first thought Nova Scotia, but this is Kennebunkport, in the distance is the Bush enclave. (You can no longer stop there and view, security doesn’t allow it.)
Then some trip to the North East, Sonny and I were sent to wash dishes in the creek. Then my mind goes wild, we made so many great trips with Sonny and Colette (Sherry’s sister).
Me, sis’s Shirl, Kat and big brother Junior, Older bro Odis had passed at this picture.
Sherry on the left, Sonny & Colette, (Their daughter Vickie and Hubby Jackie), came to visit when we lived in D.C. They toured the White house. I never did.
My home away from home for a couple years, the CVA-62 USS Independence.
It isn’t actually easy to look these pictures up after they pass. I have to make notes to find them.
But I am so happy to enjoy this technology, It keeps family, friends and travels fresh in my mind.
I figure I will pass away, wondering what is over the next hill.
My first car, 1948 Chevy, I wouldn’t mention it, but we saw a Black one just the other day on our way to Melbourne. Lotta memories in that car…
