The boys are here and they always enjoy our screen savers. Two computers going at once with pictures from our past going by.

Jack Jr on the Phone and Mark on the phone.

I have to think of the times we would get out Mama’s picture albums. The black pages with pictures carefully installed with 4 corner holders. Then after the pages were turned on the two or three albums, we would go to the shoe box with the various pictures that never made it to an album.  What fun!

Now pictures like this pop up:

I removed my comment I spelled a
word wrong.

Love to see the pictures brought back lots of memories. I bet the boys or on the phone talking to Grandparents.

Where did the years go. I feel
like Phil Harris "If I had known
I was going to live this long I
would have taken better care of
myself". Tell the boys to remember
that saying..or they will be saying the same thing...Love life
and be kind to yourself.

Loved seeing all the black and white photos. Yes, I too have those albums with the black pages and the corner inserts to hold the photos.

Boy, we have come a long way. Now we store all our photos on our computers!

I love viewing pictures of my family when my kids were young. And, I was young!!!!

Hugs to my favorite couple!

Always like to see old pictures. Bet you and Sherry are having fun with the boys. My Lynda told me she just connected with a guy who used to rest under our tree on the way home from school. He reminded her Mel sold him Mel's Mama's car for $100. He wrecked it the next day and Mel wasn't too happy with him.

It was a lot of fun seeing the pictures of your boys and you and Sherry too. I do have a scanner and need to upload more old pictures into my computer. Enjoy the visit with the boys ! I'm thinking you'll be taking more pictures to add to the collection!


It is always fun to take a trip down memory lane with a photo album. Yours was delightful today.

«Louis» enjoyed the "family album"! :-)

What a deal on that '55 Chevy!
«Louis» thinks the '55 is the best of the trio ('55-'56-'57), the '57 being a very close 2nd.
