Aunt Joan's 1993 Reunion Photo Album

While I was up at Gary and Audrey's a couple weeks ago, I went through their pictures and found an album that Aunt Joan put together from the 1993 Nielsen family reunion in Denmark.

The cool thing about it was that she wrote comments on the back of each picture. I didn't realize it at the time but once I got the pictures home started scanning them I found that names, dates and locations were written on the back of almost every picture. []

First Fish on Hedgren Lake 2015

I drew first blood on the lake this morning! This guy had to go at least 2 pounds. The Hedgren Lake bass fishing season is officially under way... (more pictures below) []

Photos added to the Random Photo Gallery

While visiting Gary and Audrey, I went through some of their pictures for the "Random Photos" project. One of the coolest photos is the one of Links Hall.  The build where Uncle Nick's drug store was located...

Tanta holding babies

I'm sure that a lot of you have pictures of Auntie Annie holding you as an infant.  I came across these three while going through the random pictures. So, I thought that it would be a fun project to collect pictures of Tanta holding babies.

If you have any pictures that fit this category, and I know you do, please send them to me...

You can see all three pictures at the gallery.

Improved Photo Gallery

Recently, I moved the web site from GoDaddy to 1&1 as the web hosting provider.  So, while I was in the process, I thought that the photo gallery could use some improvement.  To that end, I installed a gallery software called Coppermine and moved all of the images into it. I think that it turned out quite well... []


Visitor from the north

This week we had a visitor pass through on his way to Canada (or there about)...  This is the first time in my memory that a Northern Shoveler has graced us with his presence.  I took this picture from my living room window with the telephoto on my camera so the quality is not quite what I would like.  For a better look at this cool duck click here []

The Ten Year Old Fish

I don't know how many of you have seen the movie Big Fish (  It came out right around the time that my dad died.  It made me believe (and not believe) every story that Wally told me.  So, here's a true story that I find rather interesting.  It contains me, Wally and one of our mutual projects from when I was in about the 6th grade.

Finally some wine from the Hedgren Vineyard

Finally after 7 years...  I have 4 bottles of wine from my vineyard. (harvest pictures here

After trying to do everything organic, I decided to use a fungicide on my grapes this year and was able to produce 20 pounds of fruit.  I'm pretty sure that I have the correct formula now and should be getting bigger harvests in the future. []
