A "Link" to My Past

Not very long ago I was searching for some pictures of early oil wells in Oklahoma, and in particular, near my hometown.  I sifted through lots of images, but one really caught my eye.  It was a picture of my mother, the baton twirler, marching with the Drumright High School  Band in their Christmas Parade....probably around 1953-1954.
I sent the picture to my mom and she couldn't believe that it was floating around "out there".  She wasn't even positive that the twirler that I thought was her WAS her (the one on the far left by the brown car), but I blew the picture up and am 99.9% sure that it's her!
  I love finding treasures like old photos of my family....it put a huge smile on my face and opened a whole new book of stories for her to share with me.  It was so much fun.....

SUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HOW ARE YOU!!!!

It was a delight to see your comment last night, and I will be looking here in a minute for that "sneak peak" slide show you mentioned. I am fairly new to Etsy and I am just now learning how to promote my work. It has been a good year and I so hope that 2012 will be another good one for us all. It is so good to see you! And I must go visit your Etsy shop!

Many thanks and blessings to you! Anita
