My search for stripes ended with a group of photos I took to Kentucky a while back. I spent one on time with my son. We ate lunch at Los Portales Mexican Restaurant went down the street to one of his favorite hangouts and played stripes and solids.
John was stripes and I was solids. Obviously he is the better player. In my defense, he has had much more practice playing pool than I have.
Last weekend I posted pictures of from a trip my husband and I took to Silver Dollar City in Branson, MO. After the weekend we packed our camping gear and personal items inside the car. We told our friends we would stop at antique stores and flea markets along the way home. When they commented on the full car,we assured them we had room for any purchases we might make.
Sure enough, we had to tie the camping gear on top of the car to make room for...
...an antiques treadle sewing machine with SIX really ornate drawers, an old leather briefcase, a stack of school yearbooks, and a few other miscellaneous items. There is always room for more!
I love to photograph cool stuff I see when we travel. It is hard to get good shots when the windshield is splattered with bugs. The washer fluid seems to run out at the most inopportune times!
I often give up on frontal shots and roll the window down. I have found I can get some cool photos through the side view mirrors.
4. Too Cute
I found this snowman suit last year. It couldn't resist buying it. The weather wasn't cold enough for it when we visited our young grandson, but I was afraid he would outgrow it before cold weather. He obliged me and wore it long enough for me to take twenty or thirty photos of him wearing it. It is just too cute on him. I can't wait to photograph my newest grandchild in it. She should be be just about the right size to wear it by the time we visit her next--and maybe it will be cold enough that she will need it by then.
This is one of my favorite photos taken during pioneer days with our home school group. We arranged a Wagon Train activity for the kids and taught them how the pioneers searched for food as they traveled. I love how these two girls worked together to gather nuts for the journey. The Tonka Truck was not from the right time period, but the girls learned to make do with what was available, just as the pioneers did.
