Honestly, I'm not sure what to show you today. I may have to dig back into the old photo albums for something fresh! Speaking of old photo albums and all things old...I think I touched a nerve this week with the post on "National Pack Rat Day"! Thank you, friends, for so many comments. I didn't get around to replying to everyone, but I thank you for your thoughts and comments! I envy some of you who are not as attached to "things" as much as I am...maybe you can come and help me clean out when the time comes! I need someone who is not attached to help me be fearless!
Speaking of old photo albums, maybe that is what I will share with you today...a little family history.
In the process of cleaning out my mother in law's home, I brought home with us several family pictures. I won't bore you with all of them, but I thought some of these would be interesting...
This is my husband's Great-Great Grandparents on his mother's side, Hester E. Waters, born March 11, 1847 and died August 20, 1907, and Rev. James R. Waters, Born August 22, 1846 and died November 6, 1903! Don't you just love the beard? My husband was surprised to learn that his Great-Great Grandfather was a minister! Which, as perhaps most of you know, is interesting because my husband is also a minister! I guess he had missed that interesting bit of genealogy somewhere along the line. They were the parents to my husband's Great Grandfather, James Wesley Waters: Born in 1871 and died in 1955.

while they search for water)
|Yes!!! That is a baby fawn, who was hidden in the bushes...and now Mama Deer is rushing her to safety away from the crazy lady with the camera!|
|Hurry little fawn! Run to Mama! We must get away from the crazy lady!!!|
|Safe at last, on the other side of the pond, far away from the crazy lady with the camera...for now...|
