Throwback Thursday isn’t until tomorrow but when the top pic came up in my Google photos, I didn’t wait to create this post 🙂

The Van Sickles of Durand Illinois

My son put together this little video, with photos from my grandmother’s album, and paid for the use of the accompanying music.

You’ve seen a lot of the stills before.

M&M’S Yes or No?

Peanut or Regular M&M’S yes or no?

M&M’S Peanut Chocolate Candies were introduced in 1954 and the color used to print the “m” on M&M’S Plain and Peanut Chocolate Candies was changed from black to white” you can design your own. Personalize them, too.

They were so colorful. Like paint chips! I had to photograph them.

Autumn in the Trails Behind His House -Guest Blog

These photographs were taken by my grandson Jack, who is 14 and a high school freshman.

He told me recently he’d like to get into photography.

My advice to him was to take a lot of pictures, study them and look for the good light.

I thought he captured the feel of Autumn quite nicely.

Anna Catherine is 18 Today!
