Slide Project: Finished Scanning

I have a lot of sorting and editing to do, but it is a relief to be done with the scanning part of the project.

This is my mom, 1981. Gosh, she would have been 41 years old. That’s six years younger than I am now.*

My parents used to ride bikes across the country with their friends, storing the bikes here and there in mini-storage until they could continue the journey. They had a lot of fun. I wish that I had something like that going on in my life right now. I won’t tell the skinny dipping with real bikers story! There are things that I hear about my mom that surprise me! She seems so conservative. These things just make me admire her more!

Love her!

*Damn. It was worse a few weeks ago when I found pictures of my grandmothers at my age and younger…darn, they LOOKED like grandmothers. Mayan laughed at me, but I seriously felt the need to curl up in a ball and weep. Time is slipping away. Quickly! I need to start LIVING while I have the chance!!

    That’s a great photo of your Mom. I’m always impressed with the quality of these old photos that you post.
    You need to take a walk or something. I’m not sure why you are talking about wasting your life. You seem healthy and if things stay that way, you should hit 100.
    Now get out there!

  2. So fun that you discovered a hidden “cool” about your mom!

    Your mommy is beautiful in that pic. Yes, woman. Live it up! Don’t forget to live! I’m 38 years old and only just now figuring that out. Finally. But finally is better than never. =)
