My Little Sister

My little sister has a birthday this week, so I thought I would find a few pictures of her to share.

Wedding, twins, wedding party, Missouri WeddingThis is not so easy as my little sister usually does not like to have her picture taken.

Here is a picture of her from her wedding two years ago. See: My Sister’s Wedding

You can see her twin daughters on the left side of this picture.

Nebraska Fan, Little sister, nebraska cornhuskers, all in redMy sister may not like it that I am posting this picture, but it is actually one of my favorite pictures of her.

I like it that she was a Nebraska Cornhusker’s fan at one time 🙂

Little sister, school picture, pigtailsThis is my favorite of her school pictures. She was so cute with her pigtails.

Hidding from picture, bus, sisterHere is another picture that I found. I found a few of them where she was avoiding a picture 🙂

ghost picture, picture overlay, double exposureI also found this double exposure picture. This is both my youngest brother and little sister. This picture brings back so many memories, as I know where each of them were taken.

OK, kind of a wandering post, but I have also been fighting a slow computer tonight and just need to get this posted 🙂

Happy Birthday Sis!

Washington’s Birthday Observed

This morning in my Sunday newspaper bundle I saw ads for Presidents Day, President’s Day and Presidents’ Day. The same goes for commercials on TV, and also my different calendars.

However, one of the calendars has it right. Monday is Washington’s Birthday (observed).

For more about this see my post: President’s, Presidents’ or Presidents

So, here are a few of my wandering thoughts tonight.

President Washington, Washington's Birthday, President's Day - Marx Presidential FigureThe Uniform Monday Holiday Act of 1968 set the celebration of Washington’s Birthday on a Monday each year. However, we will get another chance to remember Washington on his actual birthday on Friday. Perhaps I will finally write that post about his service in Truro Parish.

On top of my computer I have a little Marx figurine of President Washington. He stands along with President Lincoln. They are my two favorite presidents.

Presidents Washington and Lincoln - Presidents' Day - Marx Presidential FigurinesThey are not in the best condition, especially Lincoln, but my grandma also liked these two presidents and I think she may have handled them a bit more than the others.

Marx President Figurines - Washington to Johnson - President's Day - Figurines - Grocery PromotionMy set of figurines has 35 presidents, ending with Johnson who is president number 36.

Is one missing?

George Washington, Washington's Birthday, Presidents' Day, HolidayWe should all know of course that George Washington was our first president and is know as the Father of the country.

Frank Andrea Miller Cartoon - General George Washington - Washington's Birthday - Valley ForgeHe is also well known as General Washington, the winter at Valley Forge and the crossing of the Delaware.

Cherry Orchard, Cherries, Cherry Harvest, ripe cherries, Central CaliforniaWe should also remember him when we see a cherry tree 🙂

I cannot tell a lie, he is one of my favorite presidents.
