Good Friday morning to you! Have you been watching the Olympics? I am glued to the telly. How about that Michael Phelps? And The Flying Squirrel, Gabby, the US Gymnast? Wow. I am especially enjoying the beach vollyball, and springboard and platform diving. Those Chinese are something else in the diving!!! I have enjoyed watching it all. Rowing, swimming, gymnastics, diving, volleyball. I don't want it to end.
This has been a hot and muggy week for the most part. I have not done too much outside. I do my chores early in the morning, and go out in the evening, after the sun has begun to set, to do my yard chores. My garden is slowing down now. I am still harvesting lots of tomatoes, green onions, peppers, eggplant, and basil. Last night we ate the most delicious cantaloupe from the garden. But today those vines will be pulled.
The other day when I got out the old suitcase of photos, it really got me thinking.
I ran across a few from my Dad's family.
The following photo is one of my Dad's Aunt Emma and Uncle Ed. They owned a bakery in Los Angeles.
My Dad always had horses, and chickens and such. He loved to putter outside, and water his yards, just like I do. I take after him in this way, very much. If only I could have a few goats and a miniature horse or two!!!!
I have often thought that Gennifer's youngest daughter Claire, looks alot like me when I was a little girl. I did find a couple pictures of me that I think show the resemblance. But I am still looking for one in particular where I think the resemblance is amazing! I believe this was my Kindergarten school photo.
But there is so much we will never know about so many of these people, whose secrets remain locked in the old "valise" with the taped handle.
