This is no way to run a blog…

… at least that’s what they tell me. Well, I have to say that this month has been completely outta control so the blog has been wishful thinking at best.

I made the mistake of cleaning my windows on one of the early sunny days… everything was fine until I stuck my head out of the skylight and got a good look at my south roof. After a minor panic attack, we started the process of getting bids to replace the roof. This one has been on since 1981 so, yes, it was time but I thought we might be able to wait until this summer. Not so much. Now we have to wait for the lovely spring weather to clear so the guy we hired can come do the work.
Of course, in anything like house repair, one project always leads to another. ;0)
Last Saturday Opera Boy smiled as he handed me an electric drill and a flat bar… I spent the next few hours prying the first part of the old front porch off of my house. Apparently, we have decided to replace it. And then comes the paint. Sigh.

Meanwhile, March 13th was the 10 year mark for my Mom’s death. I had planned to run a beautiful little photo essay about her but the further I got into the process of scanning old photos, I realized I have a lot to say. Dad’s 20 year mark comes in May so I am thinking I might wait until I can do them both some justice.

This one is from their wedding in July, 1950… Grace H. Benson married Allan B. Bosworth… he was just out of the Navy and she was still in. They look happy to me and so very young.

To be continued…

    LOVE the photo of your Mum and Dad. Your dad looks like quite a character. I can’t wait to hear their story. I see a LOT of you in your mother’s face.

    Glad to see you let the Ides of March pass and quietly slipped one in before another month passed.

    Looking forward to the next post. Your audience awaits!

    Jamie,

    I love that picture of your folks — they look happy and fun and I’m sure the missing of them doesn’t end, just changes shape over the years. I look forward to hearing more about them, seeing the pictures, whenever the time is right. In the meantime, I wish you good earplugs as the roof goes on!

    That’s a great shot of your folks. I believe I remember your Mom with a twin lens reflex camera. I’m enjoying your website and the beautiful work you do. I continue to be a frustrated amateur photographer but I enjoy it. Regards.

    Thanks, Bill… it’s nice to know people are poking around in the old posts. ;0)
    I think the frustration in photography is a way of telling you to relax and keep going.
    Workshops abound and I’d be willing to bet you could find one to address your particular issues. I took 5 great workshops in the late ’90’s in Santa Fe. They were such a life changing experience for me and I would go again in a heartbeat if I had the time and the money.
