Dear Anna, May all your wishes come true.
Love, FF Ruthie
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.
My granddaughter Anna (13) texted me this photo from Ohio, just after I returned to Pittsburgh. I’d a week’s visit with both families. It was warm enough to play at the playground today.
I thought it a good composition
Then she sent me the second photo and I could see some warm lights through the trees.
You might remember Anna’s photo of the pick-up truck full of mannequin legs on a snowy highway. From 4 years ago Click to see Anna’s photo from 2012
Charlie learns to make a tower all by himself. But that final block was a challenge.
You know the end result….
but we were laughing and I didn’t take a pic of the fallen blocks
Jack tried repeatedly to dislodge the nylon parachute guy from the birch tree in the backyard. Stuck! It was a stunning winter day. Gray and white clouds, blue sky and just below freezing temp. A day for the real camera and not the phone.
His dad was going to help himtry to retrieve it later after work but I wasn’t there to find out if they succeeded.

Took this the Saturday after Thanksgiving when the grandkids and I visited Aunt Mary in NYC. It was a wonderful piece of playground equipment, made in Germany.

Had to consider do I post a photo “peopled or unpeopled”?
Aunt Mary, Michael, Maura and Jack look across the Hudson River to New Jersey. Documenting the Thanksgiving vacation, saving memories of a childhood experience for reference.
