Al Kaline Delivered and Day With Family

This morning, we drove to Diana’s brothers house and delivered the Al Kaline photo.


That was many years coming, and we are glad it is back where it belongs.  🙂

Later in the day, we had the family over to our place for a cookout, some horseshoes, shuffleboard and time at the pool.  


Here is Diana’s brother Dan enjoying the  offerings.

Chillin’ with Great-aunt Diana.  🙂

 We all had a great day!

Recently, I was invited by Rob at Rockiesoutdoors to take part in a five day black and white photo challenge.



For my Day 2 photo, I chose a photo that I took in 2012 in the Tetons in Wyoming.  There is something that draws us to that magical mountain range.

As part of the challenge I am to nominate a fellow blogger each of the five days to join in and take part. So today I nominate Gin from Darwin On The Rocks And Around The World.

The only rules of the challenge are:

1. On five consecutive days, create a post using a recent or past photograph in black and white.

2. Invite another blogging friend each day to join in the challenge.

I hope you enjoy my photos, and hopefully Gin will accept the challenge!

  1. I love the Grand tetons national park (not the midges and mosquitoes, my feet still remember the pain). Thanks for the nomination, challenge accepted. I may or may not post today but I will do it soon 🙂


  2. Oh No! Not shuffleboard! (just teasing)

    Love the Teton’s shot. That’s one place we have to get back to and spend some time — only problem is when to do it when there aren’t too many campers and the weather is warm. Not sure if that time exists any more.


    1. Last two times we were there, we stayed at Colter Bay. And even with a full RV park, there were enough pines to muffle the sound. Our last trip there was to show our Golden Retriever, Jenny, the lake she was named after. She was spinning circles when she saw it. That was a pretty darned special day.

      1. I’ll bet it was special. We aren’t pet owners at the moment, but those special times with one’s fur-friends or fur-kids (depending) are always memory makers.


      2. There was a family there from Sweden that was so blown away by the fact we named her after the lake, they insisted to have Jenny in their family photo. 🙂
