Wordless Wednesday – More From the Archives…

by Janice


I haven’t been taking many photos lately. Too busy I guess. So I am going into the archives again this week.

Can you tell we were kids in the 70′s? My dad loved fishing, so growing up we spent many hours in a boat, on a lake, fishing.

Thanks to Uisce for creating Wordless Wednesday.

Ahhhhh, it takes me back to all those memorable summer vacations at the lake where our car would break down EVERY TIME and my brothers would try to drown me. And I wouldn’t trade ‘em for the world. :)

it’s amazing the quality of the film paper if you compare ‘em now. with all the digital ways these days, this picture is so refreshing.


35 Turtles April 18, 2007 at 3:24 pm

Those life jackets are HUGE! Looks like one of you is about to fall out of one. I love looking at the old photos, they bring back so many memories.

My WW is up.


36 KC April 18, 2007 at 11:38 pm

oh my dad and mom both loved to fish.. we would have our sleeping bags laid out on the pair sleeping at about midnight while mom and dad were pulling in those fish.. When they did go out an buy a boat.. I couldn’t handle going with them so I bagged to go to my grandmas.. I loved being on the boat riding around and stuff but when they stopped to fish I would get so SOOOOOOOO very sea sick and normally ended up feeding the fish myself over the side of the boat so they were more then happy to let me stay with grandma LOL..
I love the old photo idea I think I’ll try to throw some old ones in WW sometime soon.
Happy WW
