I am reblogging this post in memory of my Aunt Mary, who is the lady in the center. Today is her funeral in Kansas! Sure wish I could be there. She was a fine lady, indeed!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my Mom!!

My mother (Fannie Jane Beachy Miller) on left from Sarasota, Fl, Mary Beachy Miller (Mrs. David L. Miller) from Kansas in the center, and on the right, Esther Beachy Zook (Mrs. Henry Zook) from Kalona, Iowa where the three sisters grew up.  They are the daughters of Ananias Beachy and Ella Mae Shetler.  My mother is celebrating her 86th birthday today.  This photo was taken in the summer of 2006 in front of Henry’s house.  David’s had just arrived from Kansas, and Mom and I from Ohio.  I saw them greeting each other, noticed the similar dresses and decided this is a great photo-op and so here it is.

The Beachy Sisters!

My 1800th Post-A tribute to my Wonderful Wife

marlandphotos:

September 18, 1966, 48 years ago I met my good friend and wife!! I wasn’t sure where to go with this blog, so I thought re-blogging this one should work. If you want to hear a song, whose lyrics are very similar to our story, Google: “I heard a Bluebird Sing” and listen to it on U-tube! A very special day in my life! a 48 year friendship!

This is my 1800th post, so I decided to give a tribute to my wonderful wife, who has been a faithful supporter of my photography hobby.  In fact since I had pulled out my life savings ($55 USD), when we got married in 1969, I couldn’t afford the camera I wanted so she paid for it!! It was a Mamiya/Sekor SLR! She had been working for a year and had some income, so I married “into money!” :-)   It hasn’t been the last time she has bought me equipment. Thanks, Darling for hanging in there with me!!

No, I didn’t buy these beautiful roses! They were on the table at the Restaurant in Siliguri where we had a snack before catching the bus for our journey back to Bangladesh.
