It was all so long ago.

Old photographs can bring special times of ones past flooding back.
 This photograph was taken in one of my Father in laws summer retreats, deep in the forests of Dalarna, Sweden . Such a beautiful place. This photograph was taken over 30 years ago, I have a better camera now.   lol
 
I remember fluffing up the "sheepskin" behind my Daughters head and laying the 2 "wolf skins"
across her precious little body. I remember it all like it was yesterday.
I recall thinking to myself at the time, would Lisa grow to be a Sheep in Wolf clothing
or vice versa.
 
I don’t know who shot the wolves, or who ate the sheep.

This old photograph also brings back some great memories for me.

This old log cabin just  oozed so much history, how many tiered feet had climbed those creaky old wooden stairs.

If only they could talk.

Note:  I don’t live in my past I just like visiting it on occations.

I live very much in the now,

but keep my eye on the future.

    Happy Father’s Day!
    You are a proud father, those pictures are worth a thousand words! I’m sure you and your daughter have a very close bond.
    What beautiful memories, that is, what it’s called, LOL! We all live in the past, when we look back on our lives.  We grow as people through retrospect! Memories are apart of us, we just have to realize that our past does not dictate our future!  Take care, my dear friend.
    Love Donna

  6. Long time, no see [talking to the dog]..hey there puppy..pet pet rub rub.
     
    And yes, I have pics all over my walls of memories and family, lots of animals and birds, and one of seagulls over me in my boat eating fish guts.
     
    A 12 foot alluminum I played from for thirty-five years.
     
    But I had shorthairs, Brittanies, and Labs for hunting myself..the G-sheps are the neighbors…I played with them, they feed em..good.
     
    Just dropping by though to see if you was still kicking..yup.
     
    I’m still pushing global warming solutions from my past, and inventing new ones up the ying-yang like a magical fear in my head that won’t even dream of anything else.
     
    The extreme BTU draw of the compressed water mechanics has tweaked my brain [even more] trying to visualize reversed engineering.
     
    Every device we ever made or thought of creates heat and is heat-production designed…to think in opposite functions in forms is mind-boggling..mine however..no losses yet however.
     
    I mean, try to think this way, if everything you know of that we built got colder when you turned it on, and colder the longer it ran [even your watch], try to imagine the motor designs, or even the integration into the heat-oriented systems we now have…we can’t shut anything down for sure.
     
    So we would have to produce off-setting heated item just to stay warm and not freeze our planet as we have "heated it" with the carbon-burning methods in oppostion.
     
    Tons of theory of course, few experiments [my part] and none [they’re part] in the thought even…like a covulution of heat-flow patterns and new problems  all in the unknown ranges.
     
    I’m taking the gvmt film [for one thing] that shows hundreds of compressed volumes and put it on Utube for one solution from a personal stance..I’ll be gone like smoke for me that is after the exposure.
     
    I’m doing a "head-on" type of presentation where each playing of it [expelling the water] will be after I discussed a feature of the escaping water.
     
    I can show ten things it will do that will blow away the most rational scientist, and like me, will never sleep again [completely]….fitfully if at all.
     
    I did lower-level tests recently and they showed compression, though little at only two feet down…enough for a chart anyway.
     
    But construction opportunities and water-management is the up-coming thing..asap?…hopefully..DW

  9. Kenny thanks for sharing.  I too live in the here and now, but I agree it is fun occasionally to glance back and see where I’ve come from.  It keeps one grounded and reminds us of our accomplishments.  Sorry I haven’t been around, but was having major problems with MSN which I have finally cleared up.  Now I am trying to get back into this blogging thing again.
    Blessed be

  12. I recently came across some old pictures of my relatives with whom I visited in Omaha and especially of the cousin in the picture on my blog today and her sister.  Yes, pictures do evoke emotion.
     
    As far as a winner attracting women, I also know some men who are quite enticed by the scent of a successful woman.

  13. Hiya Kenny,
    just thought i would come by while i have a wee cuppa before i head out into the sunshine for a walk.
    I have to say i do love to look back at old pictures, some make me sad some make me happy but like you said, past is past. Always makes me happy thinking how my life has moved through the years. I love the picture of your daughter and did have a wee giggle at your comment on "i don’t know who shot the wolves or ate the sheep"…lolol   Beautiful picture, children is something i have missed out on in life, but i guess i was meant for other things Kenny.
     
    I hope you are well and it’s not raining too hard in your wee part of the world. You take care now and i’ll speak with you soon. Sending lots of Love to you and big Cherno.
    Love Diane…xxxx

  14. I love old photographs. In my house in Texas I had this wonderful library where I hung photographs of family members from day long past… I used to look at them and ponder things. It is good to revisit the past–it helps us connect to ourselves and look to the future. xx

  15. hi kenny – like your pictures, sometimes it is good to visit the past, maybe it helps us to see where we are going in the future – dont know – my daughter and grandson, both have brilliant memories, I unfortunately dont, but both sometimes jog my memory but certain comments they make – have a good week, blessings, nita.
