Life gets away

Jilda and I did chores today. We had a box of things to donate to the Thrift Store that has been sitting in our spare bedroom for weeks.

As Jilda threw a few additional things into the box, she asked if there was anything in the office that needed to go. Before I was finished, we had to find another box.

The house seems to be breathing easier since the tidy-up.

I didn't get a chance to shoot a picture today so I went to the archives. I picked a year at random and went to November of that year. The picture I found wasn't taken in 2011, but it was the year I scanned this picture and uploaded it. That's me on the back on the far left.

The photo is the last family photograph of my family. Jilda shot the picture. My dad looked fairly healthy in this photograph.  I think it was taken in 1984.

Life gets away.


  1. Life does indeed get away.
    Precious memories in that photo.

  2. You haven't changed a bit.

      Maybe just a LITTLE bit!!

  3. A definite keeper, Rick. A fine family photo --I know the feeling of faces missing in more recent ones-- but I can tell they all felt good about Jilda because their smiles are genuine.

  4. Where did all the hair go? lol... I used to smoke too years ago. I'm glad I kicked the habit in 1968. It's a great time capsule family photo of a slower pace.
    Hugs, Julia

  5. Time does fly and faster with each year for sure. One thing about pictures is that they capture the moment. And what a happy one for you to have with that memory of you all together.

  6. I love family pictures, even someone else's. Yeah Life gets away (and so does hair!) Love it my friend and we all need to take a few boxes to the thrift store, even us in a motor home....
    I always enjoy the visit here.

  7. I have boxes packed sitting in the dining room ready to take to the thrift store. I guess its that time of year.
    Sweet family photo. Nice hair.

  8. I love to de-clutter. Your hair is (was) great.
