Alicia over at More than Words started “Friday Photo Flashback” because of having so many pictures from her PRE-digital camera days. She thought it would be fun to scan them and share them here with you. I’m having so much fun doing this, that I would love for you to join us, too! So dig out the photo albums and put your scanner ON! Don’t forget to sign in to her MckLinky so we can all visit and comment on each others blogs!   IT’S GREAT FUN!    Please come join us.   Just sign up at Alicia’s linky at Friday Photo Flashback (link above).  You’ll love walking down memory lane – just as I do!

Above are my children. To the left is my son Tony’s (Tony last on the right, Tricia aka NightOwlMama, Missy-the baby, and Rocky) wedding about 10 yrs. ago.  The pic on the right are them about 30 yrs. ago (Baby – Missy, Tricia, Rocky and Tony).  And these children are here because of this lady – she started it!
   My MaMa – Carmelina!  Miss you lots! 

Are you a blogger over 40? Yeah, welcome to the club!
Please join in the fun and get to know your fellow bloggers at Never Growing Old!!

“In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So here on Fridays we’re taking it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’m asking a simple question for you to answer & nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link at the very friendly place of Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends and find new followers!

My question is:   What is your hobby, and if you don’t have one now did you use to have one?

I use to collect Angels (statutes, pictures, pins, whatever… any and all), but then my house got over run with Angels.  I still have a lot of them, but I told everyone to stop buying me Angels unless they were unusual or unique in some way.  Now I guess my hobby is crocheting blankets (mainly because that’s all I know how to).  

Have a Great Weekend Everyone, and THANKS for stopping by, and following me.  Also, please take a look at my GIVE-AWAYS before you leave.  I’m sure I’ll take a look at yours to see if there’s something I might like and visa-versa!  ~hehe~   Oh!  Don’t forget about this Monday – “MONDAY’S MUSIC MOVES ME”  It’s FREE BEE WEEK!  PICK WHATEVER YOU WANT – MOVE ME!!!  I truly hope you ALL can make it.  ROCK ON!

Thanks for Subscribing to emails. Hope you stop by to comment, too.
