Happy Tuesday and More


Happy Tuesday My nephew Gary, first born grandchild and my arch nemesis when I was five. Does my expression give it away?

This photo makes me so happy. Probably shortly before my grandma lost her eyesight. I loved her so much and always will. Gone since 1967 and there is not one day that goes by that I do not think of her. My mom is on the left and my grandma's cousin France standing behind us. Someone did write all of our names on the back of the photo. SMILE.

Wordless Wednesday

My friend Lynette was checking in at her late aunt's home. She took this photo of my childhood home. My father would have flipped his lid to see that nasty ram shackled piece of broken down fence. Zero pride. Her aunt's home is the last on the block with an original owner. It will soon be destroyed as all the others have. Trashy people, breaks my heart.

Such a sweet memory. My friend Lynette & I have known each other since we were small children. That is a long, long time.

Family is a wonderful thing. Well most of the time.

Sorry that the change in your childhood home brought trashy people. It happens a lot.

Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous day and rest of the week, Anne. Love and hugs. ♥

Looking back at those special memories is always fun.

Even if they'd taken better care, a house changes with new owners. You really can't go home again, it isn't the same.

Wonderful memories. Now, WHY was Gary your nemesis?

Yes, I absolutely hate it when a treasure family home is allowed to deteriorate until it has to be torn down. My mother's old homestead, where she grew up with her 6 siblings, had to be torn down too years & years ago. All the sisters stood across the street and watched the wrecking ball do its job. They cried & cried. So I agree with you, Anne. I long for the good ole days more and more, the older I get. ~Andrea xoxoxo

Hahahaha re. your expression in that first photo!
Lynette's capturing that photo of your childhood home is such a thoughtful gesture. Last year I looked mine up on Google Earth. The obvious neglect made me want to cry.
