2018_04_02_10_05_56.pdf000Years ago in Dublin we had a black cat that we named Slinky Malinki.  Here he is atop a fence and scratching and digging his claws in, just like our current cat Katerina.  Tops of fences are excellent surveillance posts.  That aside, I liked the morning shadow of the cat on the wall behind.  Memories.

50 Years Ago

2018_04_02_09_34_45.pdf000  50 years ago in February 1968 this starry-eyed couple were wed in St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Nairobi, Kenya

We haven’t celebrated the actual date – I was visiting one of our sons in London and Dublin.  And Ian remained here in Seattle – too infirm to make the trip.

I’ve been wanting to mark the 50 year milestone though by writing a bit on my blog and including some photos taken long ago in those early years.
