Forty Years


Forty Years, originally uploaded by Yankee T.

Forty years ago this month, this photo was taken for my Senior yearbook in high school.

Underneath our photos, we each had a quote chosen by the Senior Editor on the yearbook committee.
My photo had this quote: "The most essential thing for happiness is the gift for friendship."

At any rate, I am now, along with three of my classmates, helping to pull together a 40th reunion for next July.

I cannot wait.

Younger Daughter's tousled mop and placid pose give a clue as to the hour of this trip to the park. Very early Sunday morning.

You notice my empty nest? Nah, me either.

Sunday Paper

I love the way this young man lines up the Sunday paper. They only make 50 cents on each one, so he has to sell a lot to make the hours worth it.

I came out into the yard the first morning after I put this sign out, and thought it was on fire! That's actually condensation being warmed by the sun.
