World Turtle Day

Today, May 23rd is World Turtle Day. I love watching the turtles soaking up the sun.

When I spot them on the logs, I can’t help but smile. Often I see all different sizes on one log or swimming in shallow ponds.

Some I just spot in the grass.

Each turtle is a little different. I think that is why I love them so much.

Happy World Turtle Day!

Until next time…peace

Photo of the Day: Train

I received this image in an auction win. Unfortunately I do not have any background information about the photo.

I am assuming the photo was taken around the late 1960s or early 70s.

In my opinion, the train looks like a road side attraction. If you look closely, you can see 3 children. One is just tall enough to see out the window. I actually noticed the waving hand before spotting the child.

What do you think?

Until next time…peace.

Photo of the Day: Happy Couple

I like this photo. I do not know the couple or have any information about the photo. But they look happy. I am assuming they are married. They appear to be in dress clothes. 

Perhaps, they are on their way to church or a wedding. I might have to colorize this photo at a later date. I am really curious about the pattern and color of her dress.

What do you think?

Until next time…peace

Photo of the Day: July 1964

This photo was part of an estate sale that I purchased online. I do not have any information on the people in the photo.

I do have a date: July 1964

I am guessing the photo is part of a celebration. I believe the couple standing directly behind the cake is celebrating their 50th anniversary. I am basing my assumption on the golden candlesticks on both sides of the cake.

What do you think?

Until next time…peace

Happy World Frog Day

As many of you know, today, March 20, 2023 is the first day of spring. But, today is also World Frog Day.

I love frogs. I mean they eat bugs. But I also love listening to them late at night. Of course, right now in mid-Michigan we are still experiencing cold, snowy weather. Today, the wind is making everything feel extra cold.

Hopefully, soon I can open up the windows to listen to the frogs singing all night.

Until next time… peace

Photo of the Day: A Girl in a Hat

I only have a little information on this photo. I was given a bag of photos from a friend to copy, and this image was among them.

Written on the back of the photo in pencil, reads a name, “Rena”.

I am curious to know the type of hat the young girl is wearing. Does anyone know?

What do you think?

Until next time…peace

Photo of the Day: Waubay, South Dakota Basketball 1938

I won this photo in an online auction. I do not have any information about the team, school, or players. The photo did not seem to match any of the others in the lot.  

The photo of the basketball team does have identifying marks.

The front reads, Basketball 1938 & Waubay, S.D. underneath. The lefthand corner indicates the photo was taken by O’Neil Photo Company.

I believe this is a high school team. But I could be wrong.

What do you think?

Until next time…peace

Photo of the Day: Love, Arnette

The photo shows two young women in a wooded area. I don’t know if they are sisters or best friends. But the two seem to be enjoying themselves.

The photo was taken out of a scrapbook. The back of the image has residue and black paper stuck on it. I do not view any type of date. The photo does have writing on the front and back.

On the front, in the right button corner, the words, “Love, Arnette” are clearly visible.

On the back, the handwritten words read, “This was taken is some big woods. That are near here. It isn’t so plain but I’ll do till I get another. As ever, Arnette.”

From the style of the coats, I am guessing the photo was taken in the late 1940s. But I am not 100% positive.

What do you think, when you see this photo?

Let me know.

Until next time…peace

Photo of the Day: Anniversary Couple

As usual, I am guessing, the couple is celebrating an anniversary. I love the simplicity of the celebration. A card table and a cake, what else do you need? In my mind, they are surrounded by loved ones while celebrating this milestone anniversary. Maybe a 50th or 60th anniversary, but I cannot view the cake clearly.

I do have a couple of facts from the photo.

The photo was taken in July 1954.

The photo processing took place at:

Brown Photo Company

Minneapolis, Minnesota

What do you see when you look at the photo?

Until next time…peace
