Objects Are Closer Then They Appear (148/365)

TIME: 8:07 PM
PLACE:  Front steps
SUBJECT:  Broken mirror

Just like Claudia, we bought James a car for his 16th birthday.

From the proverbial little old lady’s car who only drove it on Sunday.

Except we knew the little old lady.

The vehicle was well-maintained and the price was exactly what we had paid for Claudia’s car, so we jumped on it.
So far, so good.  Well, except for the passenger’s side mirror glass which fell off and broke.
Still, not a huge issue…we ordered a new one from eBay.

Today would have been Mom’s 73rd birthday.

How I miss that woman.

Memories (146/365)

Eudora Alice Welty (American, Author, 1909-2001)

TIME: 7:19 PM
PLACE:  Front porch

Stella sat on the front porch this evening and paged through my Project 365 book for 2009 and 2012.
She is the same age now as Claudia was when I started this photo-a-day.
Now Claudia will be a senior in high school this fall.

Theater Seats (142/365)

20150522 IMG_2345
TIME: 8:17 PM
PLACE: The Edge

The girls and I went to see the remake of “Poltergeist”
I remember watching the original on HBO when I was 15.
The remake was not as good at the first one…although, I did think Sam Rockwell did a great job (loved him since his role as Wild Bill in “The Green Mile”)
I need to get them to see the original.
