Slice of Life Vol. 1

I was going to sprinkle this into the Personal Photo Projects, but that hasn’t worked out, so I’m going to make this the new Thursday thing for this blog. I’m going to start scanning my Dad’s negatives and posting them on Thursday. These will be posted without commentary and in no particular order. Here is the first batch:


























































There is a little bit of a learning curve and dusting, so my dusting skills should improve as this project progresses.

Advent Study Gift

Teresa and I took part in an Advent Study at church on the 4 Tuesdays of Advent.

At the end of one of the studies, the one that Teresa skipped, George Eckstein came across the room and sat on my couch. He handed me a bag and said that he had a gift more me and Teresa.

I thought this was a little bit strange, but I opened the bag up. What was inside was a very pleasant surprise.



George had come across and old postcard that my dad had made for my dad’s postcard company, “Slice of Life”. He scanned and printed a couple copies and framed them. It was an awesome present.

Happy Birthday Mom!

I thought I would celebrate my Mom’s birthday by posting some pictures of her from the 1970s.

Mom

While I was going through this album I found a picture of our crazy old neighbor lady that wanted to push me down a well. I’ll have to post her picture in the future.

* I also considered: “I’m Teresa – Look at me! I have to force my way into the picture!”

The Eldest Sister

Happy Birthday to my eldest sister, albeit a couple days late!

Now by looking at some of those pictures you would guess that Teresa must be like a million years old now. Her friend Rob assures me that she is only 45.*

* I should state that because women are sensitive about their age, Teresa isn’t actually 45 either.
