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!

September 18, 1966, the day I met this lovely young lady! That started our relationship, and we “never looked back!” We have been married 53 years, and are looking to many more great years together. Alice had seen me on a bus on September 17. She had observed that a young lady got on the bus, and she saw me give up my seat for her. She never thought more of it, until she met me the next day! National Wife Appreciation Day, also falls on September 18, this year! I appreciate all the miles my wife has traveled with me, supporting me in so many ways! This photo was taken on the East Coast of the U.S. From the hat, you can tell that we also climbed the trek up to Poon Hill in Nepal, which was a part of our 40th wedding anniversary!

We met at college

Courted for one-thousand days

Then wedded for life

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!

Summit County, Nevada has this nice rest area in Echo Canyon! We enjoyed stopping whenever we felt like to take a break. The beautiful scenery was a bonus.

Don’t Make a Nest

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!

This week my taxi work took me to the East Coast of the USA. My wife was able to travel along this time!!!

Before I see the bird!

My Fav T-Shirt, and Mug, Both Gifts From Friends

My wife and I go walking on a local trail. I see a bird, I try to photograph it, check it out with my binoculars, and before I know it she is far down the trail. After some 30 minutes I look into the distance, and I see her returning! She We are both in our “happy places!”

Sunday Noon after church, with my younger brother, Bob.

We had a short and sweet birthday party, with just my wife and I attending! All my siblings attended via Zoom, thus they missed the cake and ice cream! Great to see her having fun and enjoying herself! I decide to pose with her, and she had to clown around! 🙂

She settled down when I grabbed the camera!

My wife and Mother!
