1954 KODACOLOR Memory Captured Before It’s Totally Faded

IMG_7577IMG_7580You may have old KODACOLOR prints in your home, fading away.

I captured this one with my iPhone. Not much color left.

I’m posting this one to say Happy Birthday to my brother David.

 

I’m almost two, he’s almost 5 – in this picture of the two of us sitting on our dad’s knees in Montclair NJ.

Do you think it’s time to clean off the front porch?

Do you think it’s time to clean off the front porch?  Past the time for a good Spring cleaning? This is just one swipe off the circular plastic tabletop!

Looking forward to spending time on the front porch- reading, knitting, sipping tea or lemonade,  serving guests supper, remembering happy occasions celebrated on the front porch. One of my favorite parts of my home.  Have to run and clean up the rest of it, spiderwebs and dried leaves. IMG_6716IMG_6718IMG_6719

Granddaughter Anna makes a wish as she blows out the candles on the cupcakes at the Surprise Party with her friends and family at the Mellow Mushroom.

And at home contemplating a second wish with the family as cousin Charlie looks on.
