Yup, it snowed up here in New Hampshire. We measured 13+ inches on the driveway. That’s a lot of snow. We used the new! electric! snowblower on the deck and under the deck at the garage doors. Awesome! It helped that the snow was the fluffy kind. Who knows what the machine will do when it’s the wet and icy kind of snow. Moffett kept cautioning me to NOT run over the cord. Ummm, excuse me, I’ve been vacuuming for years and never ran over that cord. Legos, matchbox cars but never the cord.
The hat is one I gave Moffett shortly after we moved here.
A friend (Hi Kathy!) called it my Elmer Fudd hat!
Schools, etc… were closed on Wednesday but opened on time on Thursday. Main roads were totally clear. As I wrote to a friend, (Hi Diane!), this is not Virginia.
Still doing the organizing thing. MOST of the tree is put away… Moffett had heart failure when I removed all the ornaments and quietly said, “I thought we were going to leave it up for another week.” Boxes are stored away in the newly organized storage area. Newly organized as I threw more stuff out. But… while sorting, found a box of photos and cards from dad’s house. There were cards sent to Mom when she was ill in the late 80’s and cards sent to dad when he had surgery shortly after Mom died. I looked at the cards, I smiled, I enjoyed memories, then I threw them out. They’re still in the trashcan so I’m hoping I have the strength and smarts to leave them there.
But, I did scan a few of the photos. So, here for your viewing pleasure…
A really poor copy of one of the first pictures taken with my first camera
on Christmas morning way back in the 50’s.
Dad died two years ago today.
An Officers’ Wives Club function in Ohio. I’m in the shortest dress.
Meg is on my left. Mom is in the pink.
Yes, Meg is wearing a wig. And yes, we wore gloves.
We were in the “receiving line.”
Glad you were here to chuckle at the photos! If it keeps snowing, and the electricity stays on… there will be more!
Oh, almost forgot. Several people sent the video below this week – check it out! Yes, it’s seven and a half minutes. It’s worth it.
