Rub a Dub Dub…

miki 1967

My love of the outdoors started early…this is me in 1967!

I spent the first few years of my life in one of those little shacks along the shore in Glace Bay Nova Scotia (my family moved to Vancouver Island in 1969). I was at my moms last week, and took some old photo albums home to scan; it’s been so much fun to look them. I miss my grama and grampa who lived across the street…when I hear that Dion Warwick song “Whenever I See Your Smiling Face” I think of him and feeding the birds that used to nest outside the kitchen window. Life is so strange, tragic and beautiful…

I once spent an afternoon scanning photos of my Mom (she passed away 5 years ago, Dec. 2nd) and loved every moment of it... so I think I know exactly how you felt, Michelle!
LOVE this photo of you - the landscape and "shack" are beautiful and you're a sweetie! Thanks for sharing :-)

What a beautiful setting! Scanning old photos sounds like a very good winter project.
