Tuesday Photo Challenge: Trio…

One of the main focal points on the central Green in Morristown, New Jersey is the life-sized sculptural grouping of General Washington, Alexander Hamilton, and the Marquis de Lafayette, known as “The Alliance.” It commemorates Lafayette’s arrival with news of French support for the American cause. Washington used Jacob Arnold’s Tavern adjacent to the Green as his headquarters during the winter of 1777. During this winter Washington ordered the inoculation of his soldiers, saving thousands and preserving his army.

Veterans Day 2018…

Remembering our men and women veterans and their service to our country.  Thank you.

On this Veterans day I’m personally honoring my great-grandfather Joseph Pettey Littlefield, a veteran of the Civil War.  He was a member of Co. C, 9th Maine Regiment.  He was wounded at the battle of Cold Harbor and sent home to Maine to die. He died on Sep 3, 1864 from his massive wounds and other complications.

Unexplained …

I repost this post often as it touches me deeply.

My daughter Deb is a twin. Sadly her sister Susan was only here for a few hours.

One of my favorite pictures of Debbie (age 3)

Katy (Katama) was Deb’s first Boykin Spaniel. She was the first dog to go on vacation with Deb and me, no big surprise that it was to MV. Katy left us after 20 months and we feel that she’s now with Susan. Here’s Deb with Katy at Sengekontacket Pond on Martha’s Vineyard.

Chappy (Chappaquiddick) was Deb’s next Boykin Spaniel. Here they are enjoying the window seat at the inn we were staying at in Oak Bluffs.

We took lots of pictures of Chappy’s first trip to the Vineyard, especially on the beach and in the water. He really enjoyed splashing about and barking at waves. These pictures show a little of his fun at the beach.

Is this a double exposure, or is it Deb and Chappy with Susan and Katy ? You be the judge.  Just let me say that my camera, not a digital one, had never, until that day, taken a double exposure and never did so afterwards.

Happy Halloween !!!
