Spellbound

My Uncle’s Great-Grandchildren watching their Great-Grandfather’s casket being lowered this weekend.

Memorabilia

My Uncle passed and these items depicted the things that were familiar to him, since he had a watch and clock shop for 55 years.

Sunset of Life

I was privileged to spend time with my Uncle Joe’s family this weekend, as we celebrated Joe’s life. He lived to the ripe old age of 95. The photo is of a sunset over a farm near Kalona, Iowa.

Sun-Kissed Tables

I am not sure I have ever seen any Amish walking on this Rails to Trails trail in Millersburg. The trail is so far from their homes they wouldn’t walk that far. I do see them quite often on the trail with their horse carriages or their bicycles. Over the years they have contributed a lot of money for the trail, because it gives them a safer route than coming to town the whole way on a two-lane highway. I suspect they had been at the nearby hospital, and decided to go for a walk.

Reminiscing

Thinking of my mother today, since it is the anniversary of the day, a year ago, that we laid her to rest! She taught us the love of puzzling, which is a pleasant memory I had putting puzzles together with my sister, Lillian in August of this year, while vacationing in California!
