Fathers Day

Here is a photo of my Dad with my Moms Dad enjoying a beer on the front steps of 119 Main. My brother is in the middle not drinking beer but I bet my Dad let him have a sip or two. Happy Fathers Day.

Happy Birthday And Mothers Day

Today is my Moms Birthday and of course for her and all the Moms out there it is Mothers Day. Happy Birthday Mom and Happy Mothers Day! I think of you often. This photo was taken about a mile from where I live now. I hadn't known that until after we moved into this area.

Sharp Relief

A Friend just posted on Facebook how happy her two boys were to be walking to school today. That brought some memories from a very long time ago into sharp relief for me. I don't recall many details of course, like I said, it was a very long time ago. But the feel and smells of the new school supplies, paper, pencils, crayons, rubber cement. The warmth of the sun on those September mornings. Everything was so clean and fresh. I don't often think of these days on Linden Avenue, but when I do, the memories are always so rich and pleasant. I wish I could capture them more clearly.
