Laura and James got married 11/12/11- ten years ago today. This fabulous shot of all the wedding guests was taken from the balcony by Jennifer Schaaf Photography in Columbus, Ohio. I keep it on a desk in the living room but here it is on a hammered aluminum tray that belonged to my parents. Tenth anniversary traditional gift? Aluminum.
Aunt Linda and Uncle Frank celebrated 50 years of marriage on Saturday September 12th. Happy Anniversary.
Today I went up to their home above the Monongahela River and photographed them with the decorations their daughters had put up on Saturday. Here is Debbie photographing the happy couple in front of the mantel today.
A photo with masks on to remember Pandemic Times.
Here’s a beautiful card her sister Marlene sent. (Marlene and I share four grandchildren)

This morning, when I heard today’s date, I realized it was on this day, eighty years ago, that my parents married. (Well I had a bit of help as my friend counted the decades by tens.)Although they passed away in 2000 and 2002 I was thinking about their wedding day all those years ago.

I’ve followed Cee’s blogposts for tears https://ceenphotography.com/2019/05/16/cbw-hands-feet-or-paws/ Click to see her gallery of Black and White photos with Gsnds or Feet or Paws.
Her photography is excellent- she inspires the blogging community, and compiles links of host challenges created by other bloggers all over the world. When WordPress stopped the Weekly Photo Challenges feature, Cee’s challenges (Oddball, Flower and B & W to name a few) prompt thousands of posts around the Internet.
Cee’s colorful Flower posts have always cheered me on many a gray winter day.
Cee visits my blog, clicks the like button and leaves a good word for me.
Then on another blog-Lingering Visions– I read the posted photo was prompted by Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge. Hands feet or paws. Both bloggers prompted me to post my Hands, Feet or Paws photo.
This 2016 wedding pic, taken in Austin Texas, (thank you Anna, Aric and Champ) has both hands and paws
Charlie (3 1/2) watched Laura and James pull out of the driveway and head to a family wedding last Friday the 27th. Mary and I stayed and played with Charlie.
He didn’t cry. Penny watched by his side.
I’ve posted similar pictures of the same scene. You wonder what’s going through his mind. A little wave.
Looking around the walls of Mark and Erika’s home, I see several paintings by Pittsburgh artist William Pfahl.
Here is the latest addition to their collection of Bill Pfahl’s art.
