ON THE BACK BURNER

Text

We spent the evening looking at old photos. Some from before I was born. We have designated our Grandson as the family historian and he brought them with him this trip. I saw pictures of my Grandparents. I forgot how slavic they looked.I saw my Mother in a fur coat . I never knew she had one. So many of the people are gone. Some I couldn't identify. I had some with names on the back of the pictures. That didn't help. I still didn't know them.  Some brought back such happy memories. We had a good time and a good life. The kids look happy, we look so young. We even found some pictures of  our dogs,the late great Wally and Charlie the First. And our VW bus where Wally slept for 8 weeks while we lived in a tent and watched our cottage being built. Wally was not a camper. He loved the woods, but he wanted to sleep indoors. After  our tent leaked, so did I.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
