Being an historian of sorts, I always love seeing pictures of the past. These are some excellent ones and I thank you for sharing. Hope you're getting ready for a great weekend.

Re the poodle: We once had a big black poodle. Kinda perky, too. But our perky poodle piddled on our pillows so we had to get rid of him! :)

I loved seeing these photos, Sylvia. I especially liked the one of Bill Gates. He's actually smiling for a mug shot! Too cute!

Time moves on, doesn't it????? Loved seeing the construction of the Golden Gate, the Eiffel Tower, and Mt. Rushmore...

We saw Mt. Rushmore in 2012--and I was SO impressed.

Great photos.
Hugs,

Loved the stroll down history!

More interesting photographs. Clinton was probably telling JFK to keep the White House clean because he planned to move in sometime.

Great set! I didn't recognize Sinatra... :-)

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
