Another picture of a street in our town.  Posted by Picasa

Here is the street I use to walk home from work everynight. It is up a hill but it is a nice walk home. Posted by Picasa

Here is the front of the house. A Christmas tree would be so pretty in the side bay window.  Posted by Picasa

This is a very nice house that has been needing some loving care and fixed up for a long time. Finally it is!  Posted by Picasa

In this picture you can see the city in the background. Posted by Picasa

Here is a view down the hill. These are mostly the style of houses in our neighborhood. There are many 1/2 a double houses which is what we live in. Posted by Picasa

Here is another nice house. This is on the opposite side of the street from the house on the hill. Posted by Picasa

I've finally been able to take some pictures around my neighborhood. Our neighborhood is called North End. We have lived here for 24 years. This house sits up on the hill. There is a long driveway up to the house. I'd think it would be neat to live here except in the winter! They would have a great view out that front window on the second floor.  Posted by Picasa

Here is the same rose at 5:30 pm. It is beautiful.  Posted by Picasa

A rose in my neighbors front yard. This was taken at 9 am this morning 9/26/06.  Posted by Picasa

Here is one picture that isn't too bad. Posted by Picasa

We went to a bull riding competition on Saturday night. We had a good time. The pictures we took after dark of the cowboys and bulls didn't turn out. ;-( Posted by Picasa

Here is a close up picture of the marigold that I mentioned in a previous post. This flower just started growing on its own with no help from me. I can't believe how big it is. Posted by Picasa

Never Forget!  Posted by Picasa

Here is a picture of my favorite person and me during our 25th wedding anniversary trip to Deep Creek Lake in Garrett County Maryland. March 2004. He has a new blog check it out:


He is a great photographer and a very good husband. I love you! Posted by Picasa

Here is the mum when I first planted it back in May. Boy it has grown. I can't wait for it to bloom. Of course I'll take a picture. I hope to make an album this winter with all my flower pictures. Posted by Picasa

A daisy! He loves me - He loves me not! Posted by Picasa

One of the many beautiful morning glory flowers. I took this yesterday, Saturday September 9th.  Posted by Picasa

This is my backyard garden in June. Compare to the picture I took today.  Posted by Picasa

Here is the flag without the marigold. This was taken back in June. Posted by Picasa

My backyard garden today. Middle of September. The vine on the right is a morning glory. It is beautiful but takes over everything. I need to do some wedding but just haven't had the time and I hate to pull it out because it is so pretty. The marigold flower in the front below the flag wasn't planted by me. It just started on its own there. But it has grown so beautiful and with out much rain. The mum in the front is just about ready to bloom. It is so nice to sit out here and read in the evenings. Posted by Picasa

This is a photo of my Grandfather. My mother's father. Lawrence McKenzie. The photo was taken in 1904 and he was 18 years old. He married soon after and had 15 children. My mother was number 13. I never knew him. He died before I was born. Posted by Picasa

Here is my Dad in 1933. He was 18 years old. Young and carefree.  Posted by Picasa

This is my Mom. She is in the 8th grade in this photo. Her name was Bessie Wilihelmina McKenzie Johnson. She was born in 1925 and died in 1980. We love you and miss you daily. Posted by Picasa

I thought I would post a few old family photos. This is my Dad. He was in the army during WW2 and was stationed in the Aleutian Islands for 2 years. This photo was taken in 1943. His name was Leonard W. Johnson. He was born in 1915 and died in 1991. He was 45 years old when I was born in 1959. We miss him dearly. Posted by Picasa
