Postcard Burst

I thought maybe I could bring cheer to some friends, so I sent out a batch of postcards! I ran out of stamps that have sitting in my desk drawer for probably four years! So, I replenished my stash!

Was this an Einstein moment? A after shampoo, selfie!

Fun

Gentlemen, at my Friday morning breakfast routine at Boyd & Wurthmanns in Berlin, Ohio!

Background photo taken in Michigan, Center insert photo in San Antonio, and the small insert taken in Malta! Merry Christmas to all my Blog followers, and visitors!! Hope it is a festive joyous occasion for you all. If not I pray, you will be surrounded by friends and/or family who can show you comfort, and compassion, with whatever you are going through!

My friend , and favorite singer John M Schmid, bringing joy and hope during this season. The setting was at the “Legends of Music Barn,” near Millersburg, Ohio, my home town!

Thanks, Rusty Baker, Artist, who graciously hosted this event! He has also painted murals in at least 200 cities and towns, worldwide!!

Happy Thanksgiving to those celebrating! And “Waldo” is Dave and Ruth Ann Miller- former neighbors and friends! Not sure where the comma goes, but they are not “former” friends! LOL

Ok, but you surely can’t find Dave and Ruth Ann in this next photo! 🙂

As we approached three young ladies, the one was photographing another, so I grabbed a shot of the photographer, and the sweet smile of the other lady!

Mountains

And Valleys

September 18, 1966 I met my dear wife, Alice in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley, at the beginning of our freshman year of college! Now married 50 years, we look back and see mountains and valleys which we crossed. What a wonderful journey!!!

The song which somewhat depicts our romantic beginnings!

To continue this journey we are leaving Friday morning for NYC, and then flying to Rome on Saturday evening for a 9 day cruise, visiting Italy, Greece and some Greek Islands. Thanks, Alice for letting me journey through life with you!!!!!

P.S. The above photos were taken on the Neiderhorn, in Switzerland in 2013.
