The Way We Were...

...Scattered pictures
of the smiles we left behind,
smiles we gave to one another
for the way we were....

Hello, if you have written more stories regarding your days at Red Mountain, California, I would enjoy reading them. I have a keen interest in the personal histories of the Rand Mining District. Thanks.

Beautiful family photo. I hope one day when I take pictures with my children and future grandchildren it will be as beautiful as this.
Thank you for visiting my blog, Joyce. Yours is a frequent stop. Just love the way you write and your positive attitude..:)

About Me

My photo
1. In dreams I am often young and thin with long blond hair. 2. In real life I am no longer young, or thin, or blonde. 3. My back hurts. 4. I hate to sleep alone. (Fortunately I don't have to!) 5. My great grandfather had 2 wives at once. 6. I wish I had more self-discipline. (I was once fired from a teaching position in a private school because they said I was "too unstructured and undisciplined." --Who, me??? Naaaahhh....) 7. I do not blame my parents for this. Once, at a parent-teacher conference, the teacher told me my little boy was "spacey." We ALL are, I told her. The whole fan damily is spacey. She thought I was kidding. I wasn't. 8. I used to travel with a theater reperatory company. My parents weren't happy about this. 9. My mother was afraid that I would run off and paint flowers on my cheeks and live in a commune, and grow vegetables. I once smoked pot. ONE TIME. 10. I don't drink or smoke. (Or swear, much. Well, I drink milk, and water, and orange juice, and stuff. Cocoa. I love Pepsi.) 11. Most of my friends are invisible. 12. I am a poet and a writer. All of my writing on these pages is copyrighted.
