Photo Booth

[It is what it is.  At grandson Tom’s high school graduation party this spring.  You remember?  You read all about it right here!  😉 ]

[With Mom and Dad.  Your job, should you choose to accept it, is to identify those photos that aren’t really part of this monologue . . . not to be confused with monotone or monomaniacal!]

[Too much sugar?]

[Oh yeah, empty-nesters.  😦 ]

[The pictures are disturbing.  ~  The Nanner]

[Ya think?!!!!!  ~ Brother Cam]

[Sometimes you gotta give one up to the Nanner.]

[With “Mom.”  At least that’s what the sign says.]

[It’s OK.  No one can see what we’re doing in here!]

[With the supervisor . . . the oh so proud supervisor.]

[No, smile this way, Grandma!]

[Alfred E.]

[Mom and Dad.]

[Still Mom and Dad.]

[Mom and Dad, yet again.]

[OK, enough already!]

[Get the hook!  (“Get a room” was another option, but this is a family publication.]

[With Grandma Fran.]

[The oh so proud Grandma Fran.]

[Isn’t he sweet?]

[Grandpa Ed with Jami . . .]

[Honestly, he’s normally a very stable individual!]

[Self portrait.]

[Self portrait 2]

[First indication there may be a problem.]

[The kids, Rob and Jami . . .]

[i.e., those who will take care of us in our old age.]

[Aren’t they cute?]

[Mom and son.]

[“Super Cool”]

[Tom’s physics teacher and the girls Jami thought the boys would forget to invite.]

[And the other girls Jami thought the boys would forget to invite.]

[Lessons learned in physics?]

[Daughter and Mom]

[BFF’s]

[Did you bring the tissues?]

[Also known as the Kissing Booth . . .]

[Ditto]

[It’s camp friends, David and Cindy.]

[The graduate’s parents again.]

[But hey, it was their party.]

[Besides, they’re kinda cute!]

[Jami and friends.]

[They’re kinda cute, too!]

[ . . . and silly!  😉 ]

[And last, but certainly not least, my old traveling companions, The Biddies!]

[We expect Rita to be landing on the shores of beautiful Lake Darling within weeks.]

[We hope she’s wearing her seat belt.]

[The end.]

About tomobert63

The Journey Begins Thanks for joining me! This is the follow-up to the original, “alexandriacardinals.wordpress.com,” which overwhelmed the system’s ability to handle it any more. Thus, this is “Part 2.” As the original was initially described: 10-26-07-4 “It all began in a 5,000 watt radio station in Fresno, California” . . . wait a minute, that was Ted Baxter on the Mary Tyler Moore Show! Let’s see . . . oh yeah, it all began in 2003 when retirees, i.e., old people, in Alexandria, Minnesota, who had no desire to become snow birds, went looking for mid-winter entertainment here in the frozen tundra of West Central Minnesota. We discovered girls’ high school hockey, fell in love immediately, and it remains our favorite spectator sport to this day. Initially, and for several years, reports on these games were e-mailed to those who were actually snowbirds but wanted to keep abreast of things “back home.” It was ultimately decided a blog would be more efficient, and it evolved into a personal diary of many things that attracts tens of readers on occasion. It remains a source of personal mental therapy and has yet to elicit any lawsuits. ~ The Editor, May 9, 2014 p.s. The photo border around the blog is the Cardinal girls’ hockey team after just beating Breck for the state championship in 2008. It’s of the all-tournament team. The visible Breck player on the left is Milica McMillen, then an 8th-grader – she is now an All-American for the Gophers. The Roseau player in the stocking cap I believe is Mary Loken, who went on to play for UND; and the Cardinal player on the right, No. 3, is Abby Williams, the player we blame most for making us girls’ hockey fans who went on to play for Bemidji State. *********************************************************************************** Photos contained herein are available for personal use. All you have to do is double click on any of the photos and they will become full screen size. You can then save them into your personal “My Pictures” file. They make lovely parting or hostess gifts, or holiday gifts for such as Uncle Ernie who wants to see how his grand niece is doing on the hockey team. If any are sold for personal profit, however, to, for example, the Audubon Society, National Geographic, Sven’s Home Workshop Monthly, Curling By The Numbers, or the World Wrestling Federation, I only request that you make a donation to the charitable organization of your choice. You have two hours and fifteen minutes. Pencils ready? Begin! **********************************************************************************
