A collection of distilled sarcastic wisdom, numerous photographs, discussions of books and stuff to learn and more stuff to think about from a retired economics professor turned blogger and photographer.
On July 9 2009 I took over 100 photos of petunias. I just discovered that at least half of those photos had never been examined and edited. Who would want to delete these beautiful flowers? I'm probably going to have a difficult time taking photos of flowers for awhile yet, I hope not long, as I recover mobility from my early summer vertigo attack. But I'll figure out some way to take photos, since that is what I do.
I grew up on an irrigated farm twelve miles west of Powell Wyoming in northwest Wyoming not too far from Yellowstone Park. The Powell school system was a "consolidated" system which encompassed the surrounding area reaching 10-15 miles or even more in all directions from Powell. I took this photo of a photograph on the wall of the Homesteader Museum in Powell Wyoming.
I just stumbled across the old photo from the treasure trove of old photos. The photo is of a group of LDS children taken in front of the LDS Institute at 12th and Grand in Laramie Wyoming probably about 1940. I have been looking for pictures of my wife, Velna, when she was a young girl, and there she is, the blonde girl on the right in row 3 at about age seven. Her mother is directly behind her in the very back.
