I was looking thru an old Xerox box of treasures today
and came across this photo of myself at age 11.
This was the first time I'd gone fishing, and it was at
St Mary's Lake, I think in Celina OH.
I caught a little Channel Catfish.
I worked for a while with the US Forest Service,
and we did field surveys for wildlife habitat to save
when they were going to do timber cutting.
This is one sign we came across when doing some
field surveys. Don't know if you can make out the sign,
but it says, "Don't Even Think of Walking on This Property"
This is another photo taken of an actual place in SE KY
when we were doing wildlife field surveys for the
US Forest Service. I like this photo, it makes me laugh.
And how can I not include a photo of my favorite place
in the world to date - Rushville IL, where my ex-husband's
family had a farm. Steve's Dad has passed away, and now a cousin
is running the farm, and his Mom is living in town.
I thought this place was heaven when I first visited it.
And this was the place I was first exposed to working with hogs.
And I was hooked on farm-life.
Today I had to share these photos, they bring back some good
memories. And I finally figured out how to scan in photos
using my printer, and was surprised at how well they scanned.
I hope you enjoyed walking down memory lane with me.
I've been in touch with Steve, and he is going to try and
get some photos to me of his Mom and Dad, and more
photos of their farm that I can share with you all.
Thanks for looking at these with me this evening.
Take care, All - from KY.
