Lightly Perspiring...

~~~My... time does fly doesn't it ? Here it is - almost the middle of JULY !!
After the all rain-all the time season, finally on the the 4th of July it started summer... Now the sun is blazing with an attempt to make up for Lost Time.
Two days in a row it was 90 and above and Today has cooled down to a mere 88 degrees...
This pudgey bunny wasn't built for this kind of heat !! So if any-one comes looking...
I'm the one sitting square in front of the fan- with my eyes squinted against the Breeze..
There is a fan going in every room except the bathroom... And each cat has their personal favorite.. Do Not Mess With THEIR windy territory !!

I have been practicing with the camera. I have stopped getting the image all lined up on the screen.. And then Putting the camera up to my eye to snap the photo...
Yes ... old habits are hard to pry loose...

The scanner has been put to good use. I've scanned quite a bit of older family photos and sent Cousins copies... makes for a lively conversation debating "What Were They Thinking !!"
Still- brings back forgotten Memories of Places and Times...
Here is a photo of my Mama... taken in the early 1940's...
She was So Gorgeous !!! Married then Widowed at 35 with One small son- My brother Henry Lester.
He passed away when only he was 25... from complications of being shot while serving aboard a helicopter in Viet-Nam.
She Married my Dad then had me in 1958.
Ain't I Cute ?She was only 58 when she died. I think you Always Miss your Mama... don't you ?

Any whoo...

My sweet neighbor-H.H- brought me a vase of flowers from her garden... Makes for a Cheery sight !!
And Now for a Gratuitous photo of one of the Girls ...
As you can see... I've also learned how to caption !!
xoxo

Your mother was very pretty. Welcome to blogging!

It is so hot here today. It's 94 now and is supposed to reach that again tomorrow.

I don't have a scanner but I do have heaps of old family photos !
Isn't it funny where cats chose to nap ?
I can't stand it too hot either. I'm OK on holiday or when we lived abroad but here I get irritable & wishing for cooler weather....my friends can't understand as they are sun goddesses !
