Apple Season

Audrey of Minnesota Prairie Roots wrote a blog post featuring a favorite apple orchard and right now my sister is in Okanogsn Washington visiting our brother and she’s watching the workers bring the bins and pick the apples in the neighboring orchard.

Audrey’s query- do you have a favorite apple orchard? reminded me of one of my favorite photographs which I happened to take in an Ohio Apple Orchard

My DIL is walking between the trees with Anna and Michael. Jack was at home napping. She’s expecting Maura in November. (2008)

I hadn’t started blogging then but since then I’ve posted a lot of apples here’s a link to the tag apple of old blog posts. And even a second page of posts tagged apple you c add non see Cider making and my SIL making an apple pie. There are photos of the orchards in Washington state. And there’s a tag of apples as well with lots of apple cooking

1984- MOMENT IN MOTHERHOOD/CHILDHOOD

Grafenwoehr Germany.

Under the kitchen sink!

One of my favorite photos of Mark, Matthew and Laura. Everyone laughing, having a good time.

How they decided to get in the cupboard I don’t know but looking at this picture always makes me happy. Scanner not working so photographed the photo.

Airedale Duo on Guard

Henry and Josie anticipate Maura’s arrival, as she brings @perpetual_puppy_airedale  (AKA Scout) into the house on Saturday afternoon.
My Pandemic pup(pet) has entertained the grandchildren virtually but Saturday they got to meet him in real life. He’s got an Instagram account and I’ve photographed him and posted. Maura said to me -when I had him on Face Time – let me see him run around on the floor, show me both your hands!  He’s the best kind of pup for me, zero maintenance.
Four of the Grandkids, their mom and two real Airedales and were here this weekend for a quick 24 hour visit. I had not seen them in 3 months.

Germany 1984 Throwback Thursday

My parents visited when we lived in Germany. I drove them to see Munich, Garmisch, Berchtesgaden and then onto Salzburg, Austria. It was a Bavarian Alps Road Trip. Here they are posing for me with their grandchildren Mark, Matthew and Laura. It was a happy time together.
