This week’s Foto Friday Fun features mostly old images chosen by nine readers from my photo files as last week I just felt like delving back further in my files and that’s why I lowered your number choice. Of course the quality of these oldies is not the best especially after having scanned old prints. Sure was fun to dig them out.
Patti chose #60. At only two years old I already had the desire to go, go, go. This is my Dad and I, 1956, in Hinsdale, Illinois. Don’t you just love the old car.
Sherry and David chose #605. I got snowed on in April 2009 during this visit to Wupatki National Monument on my way north to drop a truckcamper in Kanab storage then return to Yarnell for my 5th-wheel to be taken to the North Rim. Sound vaguely familiar?
Diane and Nigel chose #5554. I know they wished to be visiting Grand Canyon during Native American Heritage Days but missed it by a few months this year. Maybe next time. It is always a show stealer to watch the hoop dancing.
Pam and John chose #107. When living in the wet Pacific Northwest during 2007 I got used to seeing slugs and snails on the diversified Siskiyou National Forest floor. They look rather cartoon like making their slow crawl across the pine needles.
Donna chose #70. I did a lot of exploring when working at Mt St Helens duirng the 1990s. This shot taken on the south side of the volcano looks across the Smith Creek Lahar to Mt Hood in the far distance.
Jodee and Bill forgot to leave a number so they get #37 for the number of words in their comment. Think I looked like a motorcycle Mama back in 1972? My boyfriend taught me how to ride against my parents approval. Years later I actually owned my own motorcycle. I kind of miss this fair-weather form of transportation.
Yogi chose #49.81 for the “West Texas Intermediate price of crude oil in Cushing, Oklahoma.” I rounded down to 49, because I can. And here’s a fuel efficient cycle leaving our BLM camp along Mittery Lake just north of Yuma, Arizona in 1997. Some of the early days of living on the road.
Sallie chose #99. Me at 14 years old still smiling even with a mouth full of braces. I always hated this outfit and have never considered yellow as my color to wear, or bright red and orange for that matter. But Mom probably picked out this outfit for my 1968 school photo.
This week I’m sharing several photos from the return visit to Yarnell two weeks ago to drop off the truckcamper. Next week I’ll be making that drive again this time towing the 5th-wheel. And less likely to be taking photos. 😉
Please join in next week by leaving a number between 1 and 9999 in your comment below. A big thanks to everyone for playing along with Foto Friday Fun and allowing me to share these photographs and memories. Without you Foto Friday Fun wouldn’t exist.
