Vintage Photos

 Thank you to everyone who left a comment to yesterday’s post. The answers, insights, and opinions varied but YES was the answer of the majority. I appreciate and value your honesty in leaving your answers. Thanks!  

Last nights basketball game was a good one. Son #1 scored over half of their points. He scored 8 points in the 4th quarter alone but they were still shy 8 points from winning. I gotta say, my boy is a GOOD basketball player. I was one proud mama last night! Wee One went to the game with me. I was lucky because best friend L’s daughter was working the game after ours. She kept Wee One entertained so I could watch the game.

It is one cold, wet, rainy, nasty, windy day today. (blowing 50mph gusts)

Yesterday I started the painstakingly slow process of backing up all of my precious photo memories onto disc and AOL file storage (I pay AOL an outrageous amount of money for their NOW free services…I might as well take advantge of the member perks). 

On a whim, I decided to share a few (not the best ones but they were handy!)before I restored them to their origonal place in albums or boxes.

This HUGE sorrel mare was owned by Best Friend L. “Beauty” was every inch 17 hands high. It was a feat getting on/off her bareback.

This photo was taken at Thanksgiving of ’97(I think!). Son #1 was about 3 years old and we were heading back to Oklahoma. We must have had an early morning flight, my eyes are looking a little blurry………….certainly NOT caused from partying with my kinfolk(yeah right!)

This photo was taken at Tahquamenon Falls State Park the summer of 1998.

That summer I was in Michigan for 2 weeks. We traveled all over the Upper Pennisula of Michigan, son #1, my youngest nephew, and my sister J.

All I can say is those 2 weeks rocked!

    The wind has been really bad up here also, my poor sister and her husband work outside on the midnight shift and the wind has been getting up to 45 mph. I think I actually felt my trailor almost take flight.

    Thank you for your kind words on my blog.

    I loved your pics on here no matter when they were taken. You really are a pretty lady!!!!
