Games

Playing games, to me, was a pre-requisite to being a part of the family. Perhaps they were an outcome of the competitive nature that siblings exhibit as they mature, but I imagine these games were encouraged by mom and dad to help maintain some control over the chaos. This is one of my favorites even …

This one’s for you, Mickey…

…in response to your “throw down the gauntlet” challenge…always willing to pick it up…I debated with myself about waiting until all “wagers” were on the table, but I lost the debate (compelled by some childhood force?), so here you go! This picture was taken at Christmas 1969…would that make you 6 years old?  It was the …

Only Our Family Would Make This A Tradition

Lakin stumbled across some old video that I took before she was born.  I must have purchased a new video camera just before this trip to Bakersfield, because I taped a lot of stuff. I have over an hour of  all the events before, during and after our thanksgiving get together in 1998.  Anyway, this …

How cool. Here we are again.

This has to be from the early 90’s, but not sure of the occasion.  Doesn’t look green enough for Easter. Wouldn’t it be cool for another picture with all seven of us, and maybe, just maybe the boys can be in it too.

Seven Sisters

I was browsing through an on-line nursery, antiqueroseemporium.com,  and lo and behold I find a rose dating back to 1817 called Seven Sisters.  Now how can I resist buying that? This picture dates back to 1980. Not sure the whereabouts.   Any other pictures of all seven of us sisters out there?

1992 at christine’s surprise housewarming

This was in 1992 (I think…Christine can verify…when did you move up to the ranch?)  I have posted this because I think it is the same time and place of the picture Georgene posted to Legacy.  We were wondering when it had been taken.  It looks very similar (shirt, hair, stucco).  Mom had gotten a bunch …

Time for a pool.

We’ve been experiencing Bakersfield weather here in Hollister over the last couple of days, upwards of 90 degrees.   Immediately, I think it’s time to put in a pool.  But then I’m reminded of our family doctor.  He is a young, extremely conscientious doctor.  And  definitely doesn’t follow the “if it hurts when you move …
