Reminiscing "GROOVY"

This photo was taken in the 1970's on the farm where I grew up in Upstate New York. I was fashioning the new school clothes that my Mom had sent to me holding our dog Katy at the side of the house where I lived for the first 13 years of my life. The large bush was a beautiful lilac that smelt so heavenly when in bloom. I had such HUGE pony tails back then. I miss the greenness of that farm and the hill side we would see looking out from the kitchen window (the double window in the left of the photo).
In the winter the snow would pile up so that we could ride the toboggan from near the swing set to the pasture below. We had to be careful to get stopped BEFORE the barbed wire fence though or risk injury or ripped snow suites. Such fun with my cousin Susie.
The last photo is of the road to my home place in New York; see how green it is? This was taken in September 2007 when I returned for my 25th High School Reunion.

Well enough reminiscing for this morning as I need to get ready for work. Perhaps I will drop in with another post later.
