Michigan Apple Orchard in November.

Me and my sister in first snow camouflage. I am laughing at my 11 year old self with the bangs and knee socks! Mr. Lee putting up with a stick in his mouth and snow on his head. My brother up the apple tree to get the shot. At one time I must have tinted the jackets by hand. What a gray and white scene. About 1965-66?

Grandparents Beamish in middle...

Grandpa's sisters on either side. Elsie on left has the same birthday as me. I have her middle name. She had polio and this is one of the rare photo's that has her with out braces, cart or wheel chair or walker. They are at a beach in Michigan. I wish I knew which one. I'd guess Burt Lake but boy the trees are not what I remember. Probably second generation after heavy logging in this upper area of the state. It makes me home sick.

Happy Early Birthday Dad...

Yet another picture of my dad standing by a tree, by a pond. I think all his life he has been recreating this moment. Maybe it is the best moment of his life, standing and ready to tackle the world. He has built 3 ponds since at various homes. I love this picture! Enjoy!

Brian's Birthday week!

This week is Brian's Birthday! This was about 20 or more years ago. It may be the only one with his braces on. It is most likely the last school picture he stood for. My Brian is a free thinker and usually didn't do things just cause you were supposed to. He now does this more than he did back then, funny how having your own child will do this. Any way this is just before he started growing the Mohawk. Get the picture! He was a tow head just up till this year when hormones started darkening his hair. Happy birthday!
