A TRIBUTE TO MY COUSIN MELVIN

Taken from my cousin's facebook post:

TO MY FATHER
SEPARATED BY DEATH,
TOGETHER BY LOVE.

DEATH LEAVES A HEARTACHE NO ONE CAN HEAL
LOVE LEAVES A MEMORY NO ONE CAN STEAL

MY FATHER MELVIN DAVIS JUST PASSED AWAY TODAY AT THE AGE OF 84 (CHICAGO, IL)

Sepia Says..... Water Under the Bridge

Hello Friends, and Well-Wishers.....  

The phrase caught my attention this week......as the shipmen sailed under/alongside a bridge.....

Life is much like.... Water Under the Bridge!

I know a few things about the Nature of Water.....

All the waters run to the sea and yet the sea is not full, and from the place where they began, thither they return again....   Ecclesiastes

Water is the only substance on earth that is naturally present in three different forms...........  as a liquid, as a solid, and as a gas (water vapor) !


Water is the only drink for a wise man....Henry David Thoreau 


Mixed emotions of all is well for the week ending 4-9-2016.   Celebrating the 32nd Birth Year of my baby daughter........  But on 4-7-2016 -- the passing of my 84 Year Old Cousin in Chicago Illinois.

Just awed that his voice is silenced.... hence.... WATER UNDER THE BRIDGE
I noted its meaning .... 
Something that has happened in the past, 
something that cannot be undone, and 
something or someone.... who can no longer be a consideration.     
Under the bridge.... is British in its origin and 
is the oldest part of the interesting proverb


This image really portrays the silence, tranquility, 
but 'aloneness' that I kinda feel today.
Not much sadness -- just solemn

My neighborhood has a wonderful lake that I walk a couple of miles fairly often

....



...hmmmm   when is the last time I've been on a BOAT.... via a cruise maybe...???   Well last year or so.... there was the awesome, gorgeous waters of my Central Florida mini-vacation..... AHHHHH

ahhhhhh  indoor

the beaches.... outdoor


and poolside.      Water --- indeed --- under the bridge and everywhere!


Let's Hang Tough.... Always Moving Forward

Still Images . . from the Old Cassette player

Really thrilled for a jump-start to post about OLD movie clips, the OLD reel-to-reel my daddy used to record on.... My brother has the clunker machine and might take a pic for me.

Hubby's mom was the church generation of cassettes of sermons.  The cassette player in the car!

These pictures are dated late 1958-59 and early 60's
