When I was a kid mama had two picture albums, and one shoe box with old photo’s. On a cold or rainy day when we were inside, Mama would parch some peanuts and we would enjoy the albums. As a child some of my favorite times were looking at pictures. We might have been listening to the radio, that was a long time before TV, and movies were a sin. BUT the pictures, now that was something.
Now here I sit on a rainy cold day and am watching my screen saver. All kinds of memories go thru my mind. (As a matter fact I am also eating parched peanuts that Shirl brought over.)(Here are some I caught the dates on as they passed, so I could go get them.)

From the peak of Cadillac Mountain I got this unique picture, not good exposure but showing a square rigger passing the bow of a cruise ship. Rules of the sea, the motor powered vessel must give way to a vessel under sail.
In the small town of Arco, Idaho these numbers are on the mountain side. I assume Graduating classes of the local HS. This must be some challenge, those letters are 30-40 ft. tall.

Dig this Hudson (guessing ‘47) on Route 66.

I could be wrong, is that Sarah on the right (?) advertising Coors and his
sister ‘er.. mama Mel, of Up North with Mel. This one popped up twice today! Sarah got married in the yard just a little while after this picture, way up there in Wisconsin. Today on her blog, Mel was showing snow still on the ground in that yard.
It is miserable outside, but it has been fun ‘inside our little home’ with my “SLIPPERY WHEN WET, GIRL”.
