Memorable Automobiles from The Past:
I am not a photographer. A real
photographer is always looking and ready for ‘That perfect shot’. One that will
be appreciated for a long time, even hundreds of years. But me? I am always saying, “I should have taken a
picture of that!”
forget something written by Rick (May he RIP) in his Blog. He said once at a family gathering he was
having trouble getting people to stand for a family photo. He said something solid
that some did not understand. He said, “You might be frustrated now, but if we
get this done you will appreciate it later.”
(That is foresight!)
Many have seen this happen, and Rick
was exactly right. He was thinking long range for the family.
The shot at
the bottom of this blog is one of those long range things, Sherry & her
brother Johnny in a goat wagon with the year 1942 on the wagon.
This next picture makes me VERY PROUD it was
taken on our family trip to UTAH. We flew the NC family out to spend a few days
with the Family in Utah. Our former daughter in law, insisted on taking
this. She had shared her home for meals and visits and this was the last day. We were on a ‘tour’ of the back roads of the Wasatch
Mountains and she KNEW the ideal place for a family picture. That is Ben and Elsie on the left end, the Utah family minus Corey and kids.
When I see
it I appreciate Carol for her foresight. I certainly am proud of it.
I am sure every family has some regrets
of pictures NOT taken, BUT I do hope you have some that are worth the world to
you. WE have simple shots of our parents, our boys and the grandkids that are
mama or grandma have a shoe box with photographs in it? I will not forget my Granny’s.
And then there are the treasures you find. This is Sherry's older sisters, Colette and Lennie.
