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!

Sweet Reunion

My taxi customer wanted to stop at this farmstead to say hi. She had lived here for the five years, that she taught school in Illinois. She was greeted with a big smile and hug! Lots of nostalgia, I am sure! The treasure of friendships!

Paying Respect

On the Mother’s birthday, I took her and 5 of her 10 daughters to visit friends and relatives all day. They stopped at this cemetery to respects to someone.

My wife, Alice, and our son, Dustin enjoying an early morning walk during the late Winter snowfall.

We meet a neighbor, and Alice joins her to catch up with the latest news. This is a close-up, and the next photo they qualify for a “Where’s Waldo” photo!

Another friendly neighbor is out making sure the squirrels have some food handy with this late snowfall. Do “April Showers Bring May Flowers” even if they are snow showers! It’s now April, so Spring should be right around the corner.

That’s me leaning on the hoe, second from the left. I would have been a freshman in High School, but maybe in 8th grade. The rest were Uncles and Aunts, Siblings, and Cousins. They had come from Ohio to visit us in Iowa. We had been hoeing weeds in the strawberry patch. In the background you see the green tent in our yard, where us boys slept since the guests were using our bedroom.

Fun

Our Guide in Naples, taking a break!

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!
