Without flowers in my yard I like to see the Squirrels, Bunnies and Deer.

Patricia it is hard to imagine the size and beauty of your area. 

 Mary Ann I am just 16 miles south of Wellsburg.  It is a small (quaint) town.  My only photo is of the court house.  It stands on the river front and dates back to early 1900's.  My wifes father and mother traveled by train from Pittsburgh  to get married there.  Wellsburg had many travel there to get married, no waiting period, they then returned home and did not tell their families for several days.

Patricia,  I am so glad that you were able to get to see part of the "Chesapeake by Air" video.  It did give you an idea of how big the Chesapeake Bay is.

I forgot that you have mentioned that you don't have TV.  Sometimes, I wish I didn't either.  LOL

I would love to trade you some of our seafood delicacies for some of yours.  That would be fun to do!!

MaryPage lives in Annapolis, and I know that she is close to the Naval Academy.  Annapolis is less that an hour from Baltimore.  I really miss her posts. She was always so descriptive about her area.   Do you know if anybody ever hears from her anymore?  She was a fun person !

Glad you enjoyed my info on Maryland.

Jack, thanks for the picture of the Wellsburg Court House.  It sounds as if Wellsburg is the Brooke County Seat.  I think in my archives I have a picture of the high school, but after 90 years, it may not be the present high school.

I was glad to meet Dad's friends because when we left Wellsburg and I was 16 months old, I was called "starving India" because I was so tiny.  People did not think I'd survive.  I guess I showed them!!!  I think I had a milk allergy or some milk problem because I was given barley water.  I claim that had something to do with my height - or lack of it.  At 16 months, you don't have any memory of anything, so other than what I saw in 1950 (not much) I have no recollection of the town.  I wish I did.

Thanks, Joy. I still occasionally email with MaryPage, but she has a singular focus nowadays and will not be returning here. I thought it was Baltimore because of the cams and her posts about family outings. Thanks for the correction.


Jack, nice photo. We have a similar building from 1903 but twice as long. It is a Morman temple with several steps. About the Interior or central part of this state, think of it this way. Our area from east to west is the same from Savanna, GA. to San Diego, CA.

Went out for some yard work and spotted this over my back fence.  Mimi did not even bark at them.

Jack, Mimi is used to the deer at Oglebay and probably thought she was there.  Wasn't it nice she did not bark so you could enjoy them.

Jack, nice capture!

Here are some videos of other Alaska Regions;

 Alaska's South Central Region. They are opposite the Alaska range from us. They are south of us and north of the coastal region. Some notes, Alaska has the largest number of private plane ownership. Mt. Denali, Mt. Deborah and Mt. Hunter of the Alaska Range would all be taller than Nepal's Everest if placed on the same level. Everest has the higher elevation at it's beginning base. The video is flying thru the range in a small prop plane.

Yes Mimi is used to seeing deer and often looks out the suv window to see people feeding them.  She gets more excited with small children and I always assure the parents that she is gentle, does not jump or lick their face.  Three or four may gather around and pat her, she simply takes it all in.

Pat I started on your video links, lots to see in your huge state.

For some inadvertent reason my last post on Facebook  has come to be interpreted as a matter of some misfortune which has befallen me. I am fine. If anything, I i have fallen victim to an extended case of jet lag and hope to regain a state of normalcy soon. I appreciate your concern, and and I am in awe of those pictures from Alaska

I am still around, too, Don..... but "zoned out" after exhausting work on the fence & pool before going to CO and now trying to cope with this 100 degree weather.  Not sure about actual temps but "feels like" even worse after the wonderful night time temps in the 40s in the high country.  I didn't do the WORK but still upset routine & kept me busy.

I love all the photos but having trouble with videos, my server is over loaded but no matter how many people switch, I don't hear the other server is any better.  I'm enjoying hearing about what life is like where everyone lives.  Most know I live in Kansas, grew up in Missouri and love Colorado mountains.  I do think in another life I would choose to just roam the US and call it "home", but this life I am so attached to family it is hard to be gone long.

I hoped to drive to Alaska, enjoy the sights of the Northwest going and coming, but doubt I will make it.  My husband suggested I fly with our daughter but that is not the Alaska I wanted to see.  Seeing through Patricia's eyes is better than airports & flying OVER all that beauty to get there. I've been lucky to see a lot of the world and thoroughly enjoyed every trip, life has been and still is very good, no regrets.

Angelface, my husband I graduated from the University of South Carolina in 1958!  He was commissioned in the Navy that same day and we were married the next.  So you seem to be quite a bit younger.  He died in 2002 from colon cancer and 2 years later I sold our 40 acre farm and moved to Auburn, AL. to be close to my middle son who lived here.  My oldest son lives in Illinois and my youngest in the new Orleans are. 

I'm sorry to rattle on, but was intrigued that you were only 7 in 1958.  I had just turned 21 then--and am 81 now!

Sue when I was on Seniornet, Rae and Bunny dubed me the junior senior!
 :)

I was born in 1951, making me 67 the end of next month. I was born and raised in Alaska with parents from Missouri and Kansas. I married a month after high school to a sergeant in the army who was going to Vietnam soon.  My second marriage was to a haztech slash medic in the Navy on the USS Saratoga. Later he spent six years in the Airforce. Both were from Kentucky, albeit from opposite ends of the state.

So, through my parents traveling and visiting relatives and my husbands moving to and from their duties and duty stations, I was able to see 45 states, excluding the very Northeast area. After my second divorce, I had the choice to remain in Knoxville or return to Alaska.

I'm with you and the memories we have of all who have gone before us.  Bunnie was especially helpful and always cheerful. I was lucky to meet she & Gene, DorisA & her husband.... along with Lloyd, his mother & son.

Hot day (again) here in KS and I have lots to get done outside so better move.... Bubble, I paid someone a big chunk of money to add memory/RAM or whatever to my old XP laptop because I don't understand the 2 newer versions of PSP I bought to use on Windows 7 and Win 10.... without help I have no clue how to set up even the first stage of using.  I bought the 9 version because Glenn ?? said it came with Animation Shop and I was determined to learn to morph & create animations.  Not sure I can do them anymore but can still work on old photos with that version.   Curtis was the last name!

Bunnie  was special.  I always admired the work she did with art and photos.  I had a poem given to me when my Shirley died 1998.  I roughed up the poem and a favorite photo and sent them to Bunnie.  Here is the poem and result, I put it into a frame and  it hangs over my head  day and night.

Joy and Gloria  thank you.  It is special to me.   Did not mention my little contribution.  I had a photo of the two that I am posting.  She will always be at my side, but for the photo I had in mind I worked on removing my image and gave the results to Bunnie.

Jack, I enjoyed your photo of the deer in your neighbor’s backyard.  Also enjoyed that poem and the wonderful photo of you and your wife.  I remember Bunnie and she was so helpful to me on several occasions.

Angel, Alaska has some beautiful scenery.  Several years ago Larry’s niece and husband lived for a year on one of the islands working for a church as youth pastors.  They had to take a ferry to get off the island and she sent a photo of them in their parkas.  I think the experience was a little too much for her and she was glad to leave it behind.  I didn’t keep the letter and don’t remember the name of the island.  Alaska is such a big area and such an interesting place.

Jack, that is such a beautiful poem and picture of Shirley - also the picture of the two of you.  And as I type, Jeanne Lee's picture is in the Random Image.

Terry's wife's sister is a teacher in Bethel, Alaska.  She has to fly in to the town.  She's in her late 50s or early 60s and has to teach two more years before she can retire.  I don't know too much about her students but I think she has more than just Indian or Eskimo children.

I want to thank everyone for the kind comments on my home. I also want to mention that I remember when you had that done with Bunnie, Jack. It was lovely then and now but I didn't realize it was initially from a photo of you both. What a beautiful memory and gift, lovely!

Jean, I'm also not sure of what island as there are hundreds in this state. It could have been in the Southeast which is rain country, Ketchican holds the record for the most rainfall in North America.

Or it could have been on the west coast where it is treeless plains and wind everywhere all day long. There are several off the North Slope including an artificial one, Northstar, (five acres); in the Beaufort Sea.

There is Gull Island and Narwhal Island, barrier islands and not very pleasant. However, in Googling, I learned that there are not hundreds but 2,670 named islands around and about the mainland that are part of Alaska. The West coastal area is not a pleasant place to be but is essential diversity wise, and it is in that area that we are only three miles from Russia's Siberia.

MaryAnn, I remember your mentioning a relative who teaches in Bethel. The city site, bethelak.com says "Bethel AK is a remote city on the western coast of Alaska, approximately 400 miles from Anchorage, to the west, one of Alaska's largest cities.

 You can only reach it by river and air, and it is the biggest Kuskokwim Riverport, and it is a transportation and administrative hub for over 50 villages." It was initially a Yup'ik Eskimo village but now has 5,471 residents at last count.

I know we all miss Jeannie Lee. However, she learned everything from Rae who pretty much ran SeniorNet at the beginning second only to Pat, and she was a kind woman who didn't suffer too many fools. She welcomed me there and steered me to Bunnie. It was through them, Den, Glen and Oscar, and others in the original PSP group, that I began my eighteen-year journey with PSP.

Jackie, we will always be junior seniors and kids at heart!

Hi Shirley, so many are now only on Facebook who used to be in SeniorNet and here. I have not been on Facebook for awhile and recently deleted my account, so I'm not sure how they're doing any longer.

Gloria this year would have been 62 years, but lost Shirley 1998.   I had this piece from an app, but no longer able to find the app, lost when I converted to windows 10.   I like the article and it was possible to insert the date and your own photo.

Thanks, Patricia, for the information on Bethel AK.  I had gathered from what Liane (friend) said that  Bethel was not a "hole in the wall".  She likes it there and will finish her commitment.  We learn a lot about our country just by exchanging information.  Each state has its good and bad points.

Jack, good way to make an announcement.

There are two kites flying at Grand Haven and I saw a ski-doo (or similar) scooting around the lake.

Jack, of all the memories you have shared about Shirley the one that sticks in my mind most was when that little grand baby was sipping her "tea"/milk & spilled some.... and Shirley was delighted with the mess... still makes me grin from ear to ear thinking about her joy. 

Patricia, I never joined Facebook & don't want to.  All my kids & grands use it & share photos but I really don't want to know that much about their daily lives. I know we don't have the same "rules" of living today that I grew up with so rather stay ignorant of what I don't approve of. I know what is right for me & nobody else, so my world is as happy as can be.

Mary Ann, I am not a water person but would love to "hang glide" or fly one of those kites on the water.... with plenty of "floaties" to keep me up when landing on the water.  I really don't like water in my face. Most of my life my dreams were of flying, much like a person swims only in the air.  Just a leap in the air and I was floating...... don't know why it isn't a pleasure in water but isn't.

Better get moving, the cats will think I forgot their midnight snack.... so hot out but they prefer OUT.
