The Friends & Family Page
|These photos are for all to enjoy, but will have little meaning to those who are not members of our 'Friends & Family' group. Some have had problems receiving these when sent as e-mail attachments, so putting them on the web site was the best solution. There is little in the way of photographic art here, just scenes to be shared.|
To reduce the time required to load, and for more organized viewing, I've subdivided the F&F page. This first section is pretty generic, just random snapshots. Below, I've organized our travels into separate pages.
|Our 'new' house. After living in the other one in Chandler for 13-1/2 years, it is really a change for us. The only place I ever lived for so long at one stretch was in Marion. This one is almost twice as big (2350 vs 1265 sq ft) and has almost as much area in the back yard as the other one did in both yards.|
|Out in the South East corner looking back toward the house. On the right you can see a small out-building. That was going to be my darkroom and workshop, but the city won't let me add on to it, since it doesn't have proper footings under the slab. It will become a storage shed over near the basketball net. I'll start from scratch to build the shop.|
|Mother's Day, 2000. Here's' the whole gang! The kids are paired off with their 'significant others'. I guess it would be more accurate to call them fiancees. Brianna is Jim and Stacey's daughter. The parade of weddings is soon to start. Jim and Stacey in June, Nancy and Joe in September, Katie and Ryan probably next year.|
|This is what Nancy does for a living. This is one of her lesser efforts. Though it seems to have skipped a generation, at least the family artistic talent has not been lost. My Dad would have been proud of her.||
|Our oldest daughter, Nancy (21), standing next to one of the most famous grave markers in the West. This photo was taken at the real Boot Hill cemetery, on the edge of Tombstone, AZ, the town which is the site of the famous Gunfight at the OK Corral. It's a tourist trap, but it's fun to visit.|
