A family of 4 living the dream in France, a little village called Mirange (spelled wrong).  Yes, that is me the little one with the funny hair.  So funny to look back on these pictures and wish I could remember back then.  My father is gone, my sister is gone and my mother is so much older.  But I have one more sister who was not even born yet actually not for many years later.  My sister is 11 years younger than me, just a mere baby to me. 
Its 7:00 am and what the hell am I doing up this early....god it feels like I have to go to work or something.  Actually the shopper has an early class on Wednesday and I had to make sure she was up and away on time, she did not want to be late.  Why I had to wake her and not her alarm clock is a good question.  One that I have asked many times.  So after waking her, and the hubby getting up and then the dog waking up and barking to go for her walk, it seemed all hell had broken loose around the old homestead.  So here  I sit with my PJ's on and my sweater it is freezing out this morning, fall for sure is just right around the corner.
I have quite a few errands to run, have to go the hardwood floor place today, because the wood we ordered, and took some pains deciding on, they dont make any more.  Just our luck.  Then its off to
COSTCO, I love that place, you can never just go in and buy one thing, you come out with a load. 
well Devil dog is munching on hubbys hat I have to go and wrestle her for it, so talk to you all later.


  1. I love knowing the story behind the photo, Lee, and this is the REAL story -- when I buy cabinet cards of people, I always make UP a story (sometimes stories) for them ...

    Possible insight into why the shopper wants the Mom alarm versus the alarm clock -- when I recently asked my oldest male child that question, he grinned, a really BIG honest grin, and told me 'it's just nice when you wake me up, Mom, reminds me of when I was a little guy.' Maybe it's a warm & fuzzy for her, too!

  2. LOVE the old photo!!

    When I read you were wearing a sweater today I was jealous! We're still having hot, summer weather and I'm so ready for fall.

    I think she just wants to know that mom is still there and it is a comfort to know that you are still there to fall back on
    as a Mom I like this feeling it makes me feel wanted and needed
    and i love all the pictures you put up of the family
    keep it up
    love alway
