Men in the Family

Another blurry photo of my parents wedding day.  From left to right,
Uncle Pat  (now Brother Anthony), Uncle Major (Richard Kenneth…
killed in a car accident), Grandpa Malone (Mom’s Dad), Dad, Uncle
Bob, and Grandpa Shaughnessy.  I believe the year was 1947.

Dad and Mom on their wedding day

Upon examining this scan in the photo lab where I work, I expressed my disappointment that it was so blurry.   The head of my department happened to be in the room.  He said something to me that I have never forgotten:  “JoanE, just be glad you have a record of your parents wedding day, blurry or not. ”   This mindset keeps my perspective straight.

Grannie Annie age 12, originally uploaded by joan E.

This photo is about 1.5 inches square.  The original has a rip in the center.   A little patience, and some photoshop bring out the beauty and serenity of this little photograph.
Grannie is currently in her 80’s.

chad and mike’s song

chad and mike’s duet for chad’s high school graduation open house.
since mikey could not yet read, chad drew a picture for each verse.  mikey was then able to “read” the music, and sing each verse.
