How About You . . .

As my 80th gets closer and closer, I have been going through old photos.  

My parents had a good friend who had a photography studio, 
so every year off we would go to Dodgeville, Wisconsin 
to have our pictures taken.  

My brother didn’t think it was such a big deal, but I did.  
I ALWAYS managed to get car sick.  
Have you ever traveled twisty, curvy, country roads, 
like those from Lone Rock to Dodgeville Wisconsin?

I am happy I have the pictures though
I have many more pictures to show you!

Happy Birthday Scott . . .

Fifty Five years ago I gave birth to my first born . . .
St. Mary’s Hospital, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. 
Spring had arrived, it was 80 degrees . . . 
I was on maternity leave from my teaching job in West Allis. 
Scott’s dad was finishing his undergrad at Spencerian College.  
We were living (and managing) a Frank Lloyd Wright eight plex apartment . . .
which was owned by one of his professors.  
Two bedroom, large living room, dining room, kitchen, bath, downtown Milwaukee
Scott was welcomed home by his grandparents!
It was a great, grand day . . . 

Happy Birthday Scott . . . 
I love you bunches!

Giving This A Try . . .

I have been off the radar, so to speak . . .  
I had been using Blogo to publish but they have had 
a glitch they have not been able to fix.  
So I am attempting to publish from here.  
Missy, my friend of, 
encouraged me to try publishing here so here I am!

This is my sweet great grand daughter on her second birthday.  
She will celebrate her fifth birthday on April 21st, Easter Sunday. 
Let’s see if this publishes. 
The next picture is of Oakland, almost 5.
Wish this post some luck!
