Sorry about the sizes of some photos......

If that photo that is chopped off can be removed by a board supervisor, I would appreciate it!

What wonderful pictures. Thanks for sharing them Nancy.

I especially love the ones of your dogs with your dad. Those are definitely memories to treasure. My mom lives and St. Louis and came here to visit in August - she's 84 - and we got some really sweet pics with her and my sister's dog - that was before Lucky - I think that might be my favorite picture from her whole trip.

The dogs are beautiful too. Thanks for sharing those special memories with us. :flwr:

Nancy, those are great photos and it looks like they are of moments that you will keep with you forever :flwr:

I must admit, I am jealous of your porch! It is gorgeous! :shock:

You have very sweet looking babies :)

Wonderful photos! I'm sorry for the loss of your Dad. He sure looked happy in those photos. Heck, I would be happy hanging out on that gorgeous porch!

10th November 2006, 03:24 PM
The porch was Dad's favorite place to be winter, spring, summer and fall...
Mornings in warm weather, he would walk down the driveway early in the morning to get the paper in his robe then sit on the porch and watch the birds and look at the scenery. During the warm weather days, he would nap out there and listen to music. During the winter, we would leave one chair out there for him as everything else was hauled to the basement. He would take care of that floor throughout the winter snows by pushing off the snow with a sqweegee...I would panic because when that finish is wet, it is JUST LIKE ICE! I just wanted to give him one more day on the porch at the end...it all went sooo fast. BUt I have my photos and great, great memories of a very special man.
Thanks everyone, I finally feel like I can post again.

Tedster and Katydid

So glad you're back Nancy. Thanks for sharing your very special memories with us... When you feel sad--just let Teddy and Katydid give you sloppy puppy kisses. After losing my mom last Christmas, that was one of the few things that could make me smile. Our furbabies are truly angels!! *ng*l

Wonderful to have you back Nancy and thanks so much for sharing those very special pictures with us. I, for one, feel very privileged. Your furbabies are so very beautiful...you can see the gorgeous soul of your little Katydid in her eyes.
Thanks again for sharing :flwr:
Love Julie and the girls

I love that name "katydid". My sister's name is Katy and my dad used to joke when I was little that there was a "katydid" monster that would come around and do naughty things...This is because whenever my dad asked "who did it??!!!" I would always say "KATY DID!!!" icon_whistling lol!! Thanks for reminding me of that, it brightened my evening. What beautiful pictures.
