Weekly Winners March 10-16

Posted by adamswife on March 16, 2008

It has been a challenging week for me, physically. I’ve been having problems with my blood pressure dropping when I go from sitting to standing, etc. This has made it difficult for me to do much, because I am constantly light-headed and in danger of blacking out. I saw the cardiologist Friday and got some changes in my medications. This should improve. The POINT of all this is that I have not been out, roaming the green belt or the neighborhood, and anyplace else to take pictures. The few that I do have are all of snow.

It is snowing again this morning. I just couldn’t face posting another picture of snow. So, in looking around the apartment I saw a “picture” hanging on my wall and thought to myself “Too bad I can’t post that. It is surely one of my favorites.” Then I decided to take a picture of my picture. 😀

When my grandparents were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary 38 years ago my mother and I put together this “family tree.” At the bottom of the tree are my grandparents, Constant Orel and Laura Louise Thueson. If you go up the tree to the second branch on the left you will find my parents, Carl and Ellen Newman. Follow that branch to its second branching and you will find me. I was 20 years old when this photo family tree was put together. Because I had helped my mother put it together it came to me. One of my very favorite things. My winner this week is

The Thueson Family

    What a neat idea. You don’t have to go outside to get an interesting picture. I don’t blame you for not wanting to post more pictures of snow. While we are lucky and are not getting any more snow,it is not melting either. Hope that BP gets fixed and you can be up and about soon. Hugs.
