Pic of the Day - May 11


This shelf represents my late FIL, he of the Snoopy figurines in yesterday's post.

FIL was in the Navy in the late 50s; he served on the USS Lake Champlain.  His baseball glove, a letter, a pipe, and a crock with his ashes rest on the shelf.  Below the shelf is a photo collage of spouse's family.

  1. AM,

    Thanks for the nice tribute to Todd's father, Ray. He was a very kind man; I remember him from my visits to Todd's house in Catawissa during our college days. It is lovely that you have a memorial of him in your home.

    Love,
    Janey

    1. yes, she is. she lives with my BIL, SIL, and their 2 kids; BIL put on an addition to his house since she has mobility issues.

      she will be 77 in july and we will see her next on memorial day weekend.

  4. Very nice and tranquil - but next time you take a stationary picture how about a pussy getting 'accidentally' into shot?

    2. Just to be absolutely clear about it, I meant 'pussy-pussy' not THAT sort of pussy!

    3. I know you mean my cat kids, not MY personal pussy! nobody sees THAT! besides, I can't EVER see my boyfriends asking to see my personal pussy; they don't swing that way! ;-)

    4. Phew - well, that's a relief! Wouldn't have wanted you, or anyone else who reads this blog, thinking that I was 'on the turn' - especially since I expect my Prince Charming to be appearing from round the corner any minute now (though I have been waiting for 50+ years).
