They are a tight knit bunch, even over the miles as they've become adults and spread their wings. One of the girls, a true ray of light, has non-hodgkins lymphoma. It's been devastating to all of us who love her. My Katy and she had dreamed of restoring a little Scotty trailer and driving across the country. Katy wanted to give her friend a little hope and a reminder that dreams will still come true for her. So she sketched it out and sent it along for her. With 2 chairs for two best friends. I love this friend of my girl's and am wishing for her she can take the Scotty on the road and follow all of her other dreams, too. The picture is of the friend from a couple of years ago.

She was a lovely, smart, talented and very independent woman who happened to dress to the nines all the time! (I did not follow in her footsteps...) Happily, we kept some of her most classic items and have passed them to my girls who actually wear them! I've been really loving the heritage challenges lately! :) &quot;My dear, sweet, wonderful mother. Sybil. She held many jobs in her lifetime. Secretary, railroad ticket agent, executive assistant, mom, wife, friend, sales lady, buyer. But I do believe, in my heart, that her true job description was ďfashion plateĒ. Oh, how that woman loved clothes. And she did look darn good in them!&quot; Anna Aspnes Rainbow Solids ArtPlay Pallette Wordplay.<br /><br />32 comments Tue, 05 Apr 2011 02:26:00 +0000 Remembering. <a href=";title=remembering&amp;cat=1490"><img class="imgborder" title="uncle_johnny_copy.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="uncle_johnny_copy.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: KerryMac<br /><br />Description}: Just thinking about my dear Uncle Johnny today.

My dad worked for Hartsook Studios in Oakland California in the early 1920's when he was only in his teens. Harsook was at the time the largest studio in the country and was known as the studio where the stars had their portraits taken. Famous clients included Mary Pickford, Charles Lindbergh, Lillian Gish, President Wilson and Henry Ford. My dad's love of photography started here. He is on the left side, front row, third from left. His uncle also worked at the studio. The board they are posing in front of is some sort of sales chart.

Especially when the day has been stressful; I can just sit down and lose myself in a page. We are lucky to have wonderful information on our ancestors. On my side, they all came over in the 1600 and 1700's. Can you imagine what it was like here at that time? Such struggles. The fact that they persevered always gives me strength. The photo in the background is a great-great-great Grandmother of mine; Mary E. Pirtle. It's the oldest photo that we have...1855. TFL! Mary, Jacob, William, Duncan, Richard, Marguerite, William. The McDonells, Camerons, McKinnons, McGillices, Whitakers, Birkles and Kimballs. Were it not for their drive and bravery; if not for ambition or fear or poverty or curiosity or crime, the course of my own history and that of my children would have ended before it ever began. Isnít that an overwhelming thought? One different move, one sunken boat, one fatal illness... We know that my side of our family came primarily from England and Scotland. Ancestors from England left their homes for America in the late 1600ís and early 1700ís. Those from Scotland in the late 1700ís. Weíve been here since the beginning. I canít even imagine the hardships our ancestors faced in this new land. They landed in Massachusetts and in Virginia. From there they never stopped moving. Canada, Washington, the Carolinas, Tennessee, Texas, Georgia, California, District of Columbia, New Mexico, Louisiana. A never ending migration. We know of one ancestor who started a well know University, several of the men served in the Revolution and in the Civil War. One of my ancestors, Pliny, was a Cherokee Indian. Her roots are on this soil. I am lucky to know this information. It gives me strength to keep going.

This picture of Jackson on the beach was originally pretty saturated and more golden because it was late in the day. I used an action by Paint the Moon to soften and mute the tones and give more emphasis to his wet fur. TFL!

I've always loved it, but always knew that if you could widen the lens, you'd see a whole other story. I can tell that my mother looks very was right around this time that both she and her younger sister were diagnosed with advanced breast cancers. Mom lost two of her sisters to breast cancer. They were in their 30's. Mom survived until 1980. This page was prompted by a call from my oldest girl this morning...&quot;mom, my dr. says it's time for me to get a mammogram; should I?&quot; YES, Baby, yes. That's our story.

And a short, imaginary coversation with my dad. <a href=";title=the-mirror-mystery-and-a-short-2c-imaginary-coversation-with-my-dad&amp;cat=1490"><img class="imgborder" title="yosemite_mirror_copy.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="yosemite_mirror_copy.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: KerryMac<br /><br />Description}: I'm so excited right at the moment. I have many of my dad's negatives taken over the years; from about 1918-1984. I found one years ago, scanned it, and saw the above image appear but never knew exactly what it was. If you could see it larger, you'd see the people in their 1920's garb and a Model A in the background. And you can also see the same tree pattern in the formation on the left in both photos. As I was going through my photos from our visit to Yosemite last month, a light went on and I knew I had identified my dad's photo! Mirror Lake, Yosemite! And now I also know that a negative that was with it is surely a Park Ranger in an early uniform. I also now know that his family must have journeyed there on their migration from Spokane to Dallas. Not an easy task in the 20's with 7 children in tow. This negative. I've looked at it for years. &quot;Mirror Lake&quot; inscribed on the bottom. A Model A and a handful of women in dresses and men in suits. Where was it taken? To say I was intrigued was an understatement. I googled Mirror Lake once and several possibilities presented themselves. But I couldn't be sure. Until now. Look. Did we walk the same path? Feel the same sense of awe? Did you linger as long as I did? Look. We saw the same formations and patterns. Our visits separated by 80 years. Our love of the outdoors and the National Parks shared in our genes. Father and daughter joined by our love of travel and photography. Thank you for a most wonderful gift. All DD products.

I'm so happy to have some time to myself after a very busy summer. I missed DD! My travel schedule was crazy this year and I don't want to forget the details. Honestly, I have a hard time remembering what I had for dinner, much less where I've been! In addition to the miles, there is now a bit more of me and I put about 10,000 miles on my car... &quot;From Atlanta to the world. Itís been of year of many sights for my lucky eyes. My soul has been happy, fulfilled, stimulated, nourished. Abu Dhabi and my dear niece. The sights and smells of a different culture. An ethereal mosque, a calm sea, dolphins. Airplanes at the Smithsonian. Two college graduations and the young adults off to lead their lives and dreams. Kisses from the babies. Flowers at the farm. Wine tasting with my guy. Hugs from long lost cousins. Cherished visits to three wonderful daughters. Chicago, Harrisburg, Ann Arbor. Boston, New Orleans, Alabama.. Steveís fresh breads and pickles and pesto. New friends and old. California and thoughts of a new home. The glory of Yosemite.

I tried to convey that to them here. Not sure how much I succeeded! And, this sure is a pink page for me... And, I was going to scan a picture of the three of them when they were tiny, but I was too lazy to find one ;) so 1996 will have to do. &quot;On this 8th day of August, 2010, two of you girls are older than I was when Erin was born. All three of you are past the age I was when I married your dad. None of you have found the right man yet, nor have you brought another human into the world. You will when the time is right. I am not concerned about that. Together, the four of us represented some kind of grand experiment. Both of my parents were gone by the time Erin was six months old. And as you know, I donít feel close to your dadís parents. So there we were. One young woman and three lovely little girls under the age of 5. Your daddy was working hard, traveling much of the time. We moved regularly. It was really up to us to navigate the road we were embarking on. I had some ideas and thoughts about what made a good mother. I had a wonderful mother who left many loving lessons behind, but I still felt I was in uncharted waters. What would I do when one of you became ill? How would I keep up with all of the chores; the laundry, cleaning, cooking, gardening, making new friends. How could I ever even begin to help mold you and teach you and inspire you? Oh, I asked so many questions of anyone who would listen. I called the doctor numerous times. Ran up huge phone bills calling my sisters; Jennifer hadnít even had Alison yet and was more uncertain than I! But then some strange things began to happen. I slowly began to trust not only myself, but my babies, too! You werenít as breakable as I had assumed. I found that I could take you to the same places Iíd frequented before I had kids in tow. I learned that you would eat almost anything and that while all of you adored my cooking, you were also great little explorers and adored eating out. I came to know that even when you cried or screamed in public, that the world wouldnít end! People still welcomed us. You all showed me that children are very flexible and can adjust to all sorts of situations as long as they feel secure. So we started traveling all over the place with you girls. I quickly learned just how darn smart you were. Right from the beginning you were communicating your needs and I was a quick learner; recognizing the different cries and coos and later encouraging you to express yourselves whether you were happy or angry or scared or feeling silly or frustrated. We were building our relationships. I was beginning to see that what my own mom and dad had taught me was usually right there in my head to draw from. I felt pretty good about the way things were going. And as an added treat, I really, truly enjoyed being a mom! As you got older and became a bit more challenging, I tried hard to keep the lines of communication wide open. I showed you my emotions and you showed yours. You saw that everyone, even Mom, was human and made mistakes. I saw that adolescent girls could be trusted and could even teach me a few things! While I was guiding you through the challenges of school and friends and boys and insecurities, you were keeping me young, making me feel vital and loved. You kept me on my toes when it came to style and make up and music. I made sure you always had a strong shoulder to cry on and you always made sure to tell me that you loved me. All three of you girls loved learning. And look at you now! College graduates one and all. The dreams you wove while growing up are now coming true for the most part. You are crafting your own lives. And youíre still my babies. And we are still there for each other, just as before. Only now, we really know each other as adults and friends and people who we can always depend on. The laughter and silliness and love and respect has only grown. Some of the roles are slowly reversing as I see you girls encouraging me to try new things, go back to school, take good care of myself. I loved your influence in my world from the moment all three of you were born and I love it even more now as I look back. Youíve showed me that I am strong and that I could get through just about anything and that the three most important people in my life respect and love me. What more could I ask for in the world?&quot; Stuff to come soon.<br /><br />24 comments Sun, 08 Aug 2010 20:44:37 +0000 Pork. <a href=";title=pork&amp;cat=1757"><img class="imgborder" title="Pork.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="Pork.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: KerryMac<br /><br />Description}: For the PageKraft challenge on negative space and potential.

Enough so that we'd love to live there :) I found a vintage 1931 road atlas &quot;Clason's Touring Atlas&quot; online and snapped it up. I've scanned in and used the Oregon road map for part of the background. (I finally put Excel on my computer!)

Last week I looked outside and saw not one, but two mourning doves lined up on the deck railing as if they were waiting for the cardinal to finish his bath! I cropped one of them out (sorry, birdies) for this. I couldn't help but think how patient and sweet they were being... Lessons from the birds... 1. Patience is a virtue. 2. Take turns. 3. Everyone needs a little privacy. 4. Share. 5. Bathe regularly. Everything on here is from Anna A. &amp; Katie.<br /><br />29 comments Wed, 07 Jul 2010 21:39:49 +0000
