Caron Grandma Grandpa Covert

I happened to be at Dad’s house today and pulled out a photo album of old pictures.  This is lil’ me with my Grandma and Grandpa Covert.  I was two. 

Here I am at three, below.

Caron Dec 1959

 

 

I was an only child for almost nine years, so there are a lot of pictures of me when I was little. You know how it is… when you have more than one child, the camera doesn’t seem to get used as much. 

Caron June 1959

And then at around age 3.5.  I must have had an itch here! 

Here I am at age seven with Ginger, Grandma Ryan’s boxer. Caron Nov 1963 with Ginger She loved boxers, and had several.  They were all called Ginger.  She’d get a new dog when the old one passed away, and kept the name.  I always thought that was very strange.

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking the past 24 hours, what with the earthquake and tsunami in Japan and all.  It seems like the past several years have brought so many natural disasters around the world.  How do people who survive them cope?  A fellow quilt blogger in Japan, Tanya writes on her blog almost daily, and I’ve been watching for her updates frequently and praying for her and her husband and the people of Japan.  Her most recent post shows photos of the inside of her house after the quake.  How shocking!  Please stop by her blog and let her know you’re there. <=click here! 

I pray that those in Japan will heal in time.  May God’s blessings be upon them through their struggles.

  1. How funny – I was an only for 11 years. Your pics are just darling!

    Yep, I read Tanya's blog daily. It's so frightening to me. Here in Michigan, we get the occasional tornado, but nothing like what the rest of the world is dealing with. Did you know there have been 675 earthquakes in the past month? Egads.
