It is really something to be going through old photographs. Forgetting that you once saw them. Forgetting that these people lived, and stuck their feet in the dirt and had birthday parties and lived.....I have been cataloguing old photos. Over 6000 of them to be exact. They are all labelled, but all on one "card", so I am currently plaing them into folders, itemized and figured out so that anyone else looking at them will know who, what and where. Most of the old photos are unlabelled, but I have a pretty good idea.... For example, in this first picture I know that these are the four Shiels siblings. My Uncle Bill on the far left, my mum, Nessie, beside him, Isobel beside her and Stuart ( who later became a WW 2 war heroe) on the end. As for the beautiful collie with them, I have no idea of her name, except that she is in numerous pictures and was well loved. This was the car of a visiting friend, to the Shiels' farm, in Bethune, Saskatchewan. Horse and Buggy was good enough for my grandparents.......so a car on the farm was pretty cool.
Pictures, I suppose do tell a thousand tales, and more. I can hardly wait to see what the next 1000 pics have to say....
