Monday is on my Mind........

I attended Robert's funeral a month or so ago.  He had lived to be 100 years old. He is my sister-in-law"s dad who was a part of our family every since my brother married his daughter back in 1963.  I call this my Norman Rockwell photo as it tells such a story of who Robert was.  I think we were at my mom's funeral and all the ceremonies were finished.  Robert decided to walk the cemetery to see who was out there that he knew in his past. This was at the Murray Cemetery and he and his wife are buried at the Osceola, Iowa cemetery. The photo was taken in the summer of 2008.

A photo from my archive of a swan at the zoo.  He was irritated about all of the noise and splashing that the koi were doing.  The koi were fighting for fish food as they were being fed by visitors to the zoo.

An archived photo of my two grand dogs who live in Maine.  I guess there are a couple of cats in that group who are also my grand pets.

The gallery was a great place to display and sell our work. This is the corner of the room that I worked in all morning filling holes and cracks from the aging process of houses. I am certain that we will have a few walls that will become display areas in our new place.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a good rest of the day on this Monday.

One hundred years old is quite an accomplishment! I liked your photo...sometimes you have many more friends in a cemetery than are alive:)
