The Way We Were


Five Years Ago.









Years past and today. . .

That dogwood tree was a stick when I moved into that house 35 years ago.  It still prospers!

While we have oft times heard, "Time changes things," it has also been said that, "Things change time." This is true if you think about it.

Be like the tree and continue to prosper!

Chuck, not sure I can "think" right now. I'll think about it.

Grace, thank you; I hope to keep on keeping on. If I recall correctly through the mists of time, I think a pink dogwood was ordered but we got white instead. I'm happy with that.

Love what Chuck wrote.

"Time changes things." "Things change time."

And I can so relate to seeing trees grow.

Also, nice pic.

Aw, gees, that is one lovely tree. I think I want a dogwood. They are so beautiful!

And that photo of the two of you isn't so bad either!

KC Bob, that Chuck is a thinker. I like trees. And thanks.

Lin, flowering dogwood is such a lovely tree. There are many varieties, but I like this one in particular.

I was talking yesterday with younger son about my favorite home in Tipton. Starting to think we should have put a bid in when it was for sale. No more family here. No more reason to live here.

Vee, there are worse places than Tipton. Actually, we think it is pretty good!
