Oh,how time flies

This is a picture I had never seen of my older sister,Mary,of Nails in My Pocket.She tried blogging, but it just wasn't her "cup of tea"."Different strokes for different folks" as they say. I love blogging. I am using this post to see if I can post pictures once more. It would be such a shame, not to be able to do so, especially since Pop went all out and got me an amazing camera with lots of extras, for Christmas. I haven't had time to learn to use it yet, but hopefully, I will soon.In the meantime, enjoy this picture today. Mary was 17 when she graduated from High School. I'm not sure of her age her, but she was really young. She and her husband,Gayle,who is now deceased, married in 1966.He was 19 and she was 18. He passed away around the age of 48 with a heart attack.The have two children. She remains unmarried and spends her life,now that she is retired, caring for a small farm,her pet livestock menagerie, and helping any member of our family who does not have a good foothold on life.She has always been strong. I guess being the firstborn, you get that way early on.Daddy depended on her heavily, since there were no boys in the family for the first few years of Mom and Dad's marriage, then when the first boy did come along in 1951, he was so spoiled by everyone,he didn't toughen up right away.

It appears I can post pictures once again, if things don't change again,so look forward to lots of experimentation.


  1. Sue, you got that right, time is like a flash, even with the young kid, they thank the same thing. Every one is just busy I guess. The Girls enjoy having leah over here, so don't you worry about her. Just take of your Mom and yourself.

  2. Glad you're getting it figured out! It's good to "see" you.

  3. Hi Sue, glad you're back.
    I hope things are going OK.
    I was also having trouble posting pics, blogger wouldn't give me the option of uploading pics from my computer.
    I've been getting ready for the spring shows so I haven't had much time to blog.

    Congrats on the new camera, lucky you:-)
