I have always loved this picture of Beth and Kate, who of course held her weight on her arms, not on Beth’s shoulders.  It was in Long Beach, California, also 1989, in the apartment on Ocean Boulevard.

Kate, at the Grand Canyon, on July 1, 1989, when you could still pull such stunts and it only cost five dollars to enter the park– now long passed.

I think this is our third visit to this statue of Rocky; a movie which Kate loves/loved — not sure.   The first time we saw him, he was at the top of the stairs, at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, which the character ran up, in the film, the second time, he had been moved outside of a sports complex, now he is back at the museum, though no longer at the top of the stairs, but in a nice little alcove to the side — he is still fun.

For years, Kate has posed with sculptures, on our travels.  In the past, I have not shared these pictures, until now.   Though I always find them humorous – I suppose because I think someone may be offended, thinking she is being irreverent, I have not published them; but she is not, she is simply having fun with Susan B. Anthony, while Frederick Douglas looks on.

Actually this is Kate, and this statement is no longer true:-)
I can no longer say that I have been to all of the Presidential Libraries – the President George W. Bush Library has opened in Dallas, and I await the opportunity to visit.  This picture, however, was taken at President Andrew Jackson’ Home, The Hermitage, outside of Nashville, Tennessee, Hermitage was the first historical Presidential site which I visited, as an adult, around twenty years ago.  It was a fascinating stop, which started me on tour of America, unlike any other which I have taken.  When we first went to The Hermitage, there were no digital cameras, and film was expensive to develop – thus I do not have a picture of me, at President Jackson’ house, from that trip – this is not revisionary history at work, just catch-up history.   A picture of me where this crazy passion began!

This has been one of my favorite pictures for years, which I have not shared with anyone, until now.  My Mother loved to sit on the porch, both in the backyard with all of the wildlife, water, plants, and passing airplanes; but she also loved the front porch, because that was where the people were!  Mother would often read her Bible in the front, while drinking her coffee and crackers; or chat on the phone and write letters, while sitting outside.  More often than not, a friend and neighbor would come by and say hello – Nour would even bring her the paper every morning, and sit to chat – she so looked forward to his visits.  The sun would warm her and Merry, and they would often take a nap.  I would walk by, checking on both, often.  I always took such pleasure knowing they were both happy and together.
