Spellbound

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

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.

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!

My wife and I enjoyed traveling to California, and spending a week with my sister and her family! So much fun, going to the mountains, my birthday celebration, jig-saw puzzles. We also visited Joshua Tree National Park, where this photo was taken of my sister and me!

Memorable Day

Thinking about Mom today, since it is the first year that we don’t have Mom here to celebrate her birthday! It would have been her 99th birthday! It is also a memorable day, since it is the day, 17 years ago that we buried my father! So many memories! Facebook even reminded me that today was Mom’s 99th birthday. Of course, I didn’t need the reminder. This photo was taken at her younger sister’s funeral.

Special Birthday

It is nice to spend time with my Sister, Lillian in California. We have had 6 great days together, with 2 more, before we head East again! And great to be here to celebrate my 74th birthday with Lillian and her family!!

I took this photo of these siblings, and the older boy came running to look at my screen to see what the photo looked like, that I took of him! Fun times!

Helping Hands

Little fella gets help from his mother and sister in his travels down to see Glen Ellis Falls, in Gorham, New Hampshire!

It looks like the climb down the stairs was successful! A great family to travel with.

Happy Birthday, Bro

I decided to post this photo of my brother and I! He is on the right! Until August 19, we are both 73 years old. It is the last photo I posted of him on WordPress, and it is a favorite of mine as well!

I wasn’t sure which photo to post of my dear wife, who has a birthday today! So, for two months she is older than I am! Here she is doing what she does well! Spending time listening to people’s stories! This is my Aunt Mary Ann, who passed away two years ago! I am traveling for 20 days with five young Amish men, a trip to the West Coast of the USA. We have two weeks behind us, and one week ahead of us! Therefore, I will have to really celebrate Alice’s birthday when I return home!!
