Morning Meanderings… pics of the past

1j

Good morning!  What a surprise!  Another Saturday I am running out the door, this time to gun training class (dont ask… Bucket List thing :razz: ) but I wanted to put some pics up for Alyce’s Saturday Snapshot.

A couple days ago I was digging through some old papers and started looking at pictures.  This time of year from Thanksgiving to Christmas is always a little harder on me as I think a lot about my family, all of which who are gone from this earth at young ages.

I thought today I would post a couple of my dad with the King Salmon he caught in 1979:

The last one is me – I think three years old?  Notice I am wearing one show….LOL

Ok, got to get ready but stop over to see Alyce at At Home With Books to see others Saturday Snapshots.

  1. Great pics, Sheila. That’s one big salmon!

  2. Love these Sheila – that is one massive salmon and such a cute little you (even with (1) shoe).

  3. I do love discovering pictures from the past….thanks for sharing, and enjoy your day. Here’s MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT POST

  4. I’m sure the holidays are rough with your family gone. Your dad was quite handsome. That is one huge fish!

  5. It great to reminisce. I really need to get mine organized and scanned into the computer. I have drawers full!. My dad liked to fish too, though he never got to fish for salmon. Love your one shoe on, one shoe off. LOL My Post is Here

  6. What a great catch!!! My dad, brother, hubby and daughter love to fish. My dad once caught a shark.
    Here’s My SS

  7. Not often do you see a fish almost as tall as a man!! You as a little one…so cute! Are you really 3? You look younger! Have a great day!

  8. I’ve been scanning pictures too!! Something I can do since I can’ lift more than 5 pounds, recovering from surgery :(

  9. That’s one mighty big fish! How impressive!

  10. So cute!! And that King Salmon was amazing!!!!!!!!! My husband will now want to go to Alaska !!

    Those are wonderful memories to hold on to…

  12. What a huge fish! So nice of you to share those memories with us. And of course, your photo as a little one is very cute – one shoe is a nice touch! :)

  13. Wow, that is one huge fish, and a memorable occasion. I like looking at my old photos but then there is the emotional response some of them create… so I do understand.

  14. Fun! I’ve been missing my parents and going through old pix, too.

  15. What a lovely way to honour your memories :-)

  16. I see some resemblance to your Dad in the second pic. And, oh, you look like a doll in the last one!

  17. Wow, that’s an incredibly enormous fish! What a great, random moment to capture in photos.

  18. Great photos – love the 70’s ones! And I really liked the one of you with one shoe on – lol

    Hope you are enjoying the weekend –
