Back to the 90's

I've been searching for our 1986 income tax records.  As always, I got sidetracked and ended up reminscing and scanning pictures from the 1990's.

Oldest grandson, Arick, with my parents.  Daddy had cancer and lived less than a year after this was taken, I believe.  

Here I am posing with a chow we had back then, Brandy, in front of a garden.  In the far background you can see several individual calf hutches; I'd sometimes have fifteen or twenty at a time.  I also kept calves in the hog-houses in the background, on the left.  

My two oldest grandkids stayed with us for about a month one summer.  Arick kept me hopping, let me tell you.  

This is how happy I look after finding morel mushrooms.  Nice outfit I'm wearing, eh?  

I wish my backside looked like that nowadays.  I was babysitting Arick while his mom finished school, and I walked every day back then.  Arick loved it.  

The more I look at these old pictures, but more I realize why my knees are bad.

We forget all the work we put our bodies through and wonder why they wear out...Still they say if you don't use it you loose it. Hope your have some success in your search.

I would have stopped to look at and scan old pictures as well. (We were just talking about mushrooming hunting today!)
