The images in the folder 09-21-08 run the gamut.

There are pictures from Steve’s garden, pictures of my Aunt Linda, pictures of Brandon from his Senior Pictures Photo Shoot, and a picture of the table that became my kitchen table, eventually.

The group pictures are from a Majors Family Reunion. Those don’t happen any longer. Although I can’t say that I particularly enjoyed going to them, I can say that I am kind of sad that they are gone. I guess I am part of the problem.

By adding these images to the Photography 139 Gallery, I was able to add the following historic “An Artist’s Notebook” entries to their original glory:

Dear, Beloved, Precious

Senior Pictures

Majors Family Reunion

Next weekends walk down memory lane will involve Little White Lye Soap and it will also involve Alexis.

Zinnia Sale

A bit from the old backlog. These pictures were taken on July 20.

Grandma's Garage Sale

Grandma's Garage Sale

Grandma's Garage Sale

The zinnias were photographed in my very own Photography 139 Flower Garden.

The garage sale pictures were from my Grandma’s somewhat controversial garage sale. I think that is the spin doctor way to describe the garage sale. I wasn’t involved in an controversy, but there was some.

I did walk out of there with quite the collection of randoms. Some of the stuff might be used to hold drinks for a future birthday party. If I decided to have one. I’m starting to fall back on the side of not having one in 2018. I guess we’ll see.

Methodist Men NOT a Steak Fry – 2016

The 16th was The Event Formerly Known as the Methodist Men Steak Fry. I think it was an overall success. We served 51 smoked pork chops and 2 hot dogs. Our speaker was Jack Owens, the founder (more-or-less) of The Salt Company.

It was good food and good company and a good speaker. We didn’t even go broke doing it! Here are a few pictures I was able to snap (when I wasn’t working like a dog) of the event.














































Hopefully, under the leadership of our poor schmuck president, we hand increase our attendance by like 25%.

Time Killer

A few weeks back, while I was waiting for some people get ready for a photo shoot, I took a couple pictures of my Grandma’s rose bush.

This rose bush is one of my favorite plants. A top 5 plant I tell ya!

4 Generations

When Elainie was back for Alexis’ graduation, Carla got Mom and Grandma together for a 4 generations picture. A Majors. A Paris. A Bennett. 2 Stenslands.


4 Generations

With Alexis leaving for the Navy in less than a month and Elainie already in the Navy, organizing pictures like this in the future may come close to impossible. Glad we got this one when we did.

Party of Another Kind

While I prefer the kind of party where a bunch of people show up at my house and do a bunch of work to my house, other people prefer parties where cake is served and people have polite conversation. Back in August we had such a party for my Grandma’s 90th birthday.

Here is a photo from that event:

Pictured are all of my Mom’s kids that could make it. Me, Logan, Teresa, Alexis, Carla, and Jason.

I wish I could remember who took this picture so they could get credit, but I can’t…

Ohhh… Uncle Gary

I know quite a few people that would dislike this picture because one of the subjects isn’t giving a nice smile right at the camera.

That is the exact reason why I love this picture.



This picture was taken at my Grandma’s 90th Birthday Party. These are her children.

A lot of the circumstances of this picture weren’t ideal, but you have to make do with what you’re given some days.
