So I will post a few pictures today specially for my siblings. I am told they are happy to have a 'Scrapbook' of sorts to view our parents when they were happy and healthy. Isn't that the best way to remember everyone? So break out the kleenex, sibs. I am doing my best to help share memories and photos of happy times, but I still get teary eyed when I write. Happy tears, yes? Well, some sadness too, I suppose. For what was...but can't be again.
My readers who are not siblings...please indulge our sentimental feelings...
This is for Sally...remember when you and Mom and Dad waved my family off to the wilds of North Cackalacky way back when? You were doing your best to keep me from crying...sorry it was a great laugh but I still had tears in my eyes!
And Sally, this is how SYC is supposed to look...the photo is for all of us!
A Man and his boat...it makes me happy seeing him on his boat, knowing how relaxed he always felt on his Fair Lady...whether the Rhodes 19 or the Cal 25!
A funny story goes with the picture below. Daddy and I always had this thing going, you know...the LSU vs Tulane rivalry thing? He was a very good sport one Christmas to wear this bumper sticker I got him! He dressed up with his Christmas Cracker hat and surprised me as I was coming out the front door to head back to NC. I have even enlarged it on the site here so you can see the words...
Tulane Happens! And by the way...anyone else digging his 'jumpsuit'?
Aimee, I sent you home with the enlarged rendition of your Weddding photo here, but I think we all enjoy it blog size as well. This deserves to be enlarged as much as the Tulane Happens picture...
Bill, this shot of you and Daddy and Mom's 70th, makes me smile every time!
I am not sure who I have to thank for this picture of Mom but isn't it just so her? I think this is where I started feeling like I could sign 'Sush the Great'...from 'Peckie the Great'! A girl's gotta have that ATTITUDE!
I know Daddy would raise his glass to that photo, that woman and that attitude, just like he did at their fiftieth anniversary!
And at Steve and Terri's wedding, July 24, 1999 they were still dancing and having fun! Don't they just make the happy couple?
No matter what is on the door now or what was on it then, at 5910 Memphis
Who I picture standing in front, looking just like this, are these two cherished and loved parents...
Happy Days...Happy Times...Happy Us!
We'll always have what it takes to be a Church...I started training Elise at a very young age!
Oh no, I Diddnnn'ttt!!!...LOL...Oh Yes I DID!!!
PS More pictures to come, but I am thinking I need an external hard drive or my Apple gurl will run out of space...so many photos so few bytes...get it Apple...Bytes? AH HAHAHAHA...
