MV Obsession

My obsession with Martha's Vineyard.. phototography..genealogy and life in general and this and that…


The Cosmic Photo Challenge : A summer walk in the sunshine…



When I’m 64 …


This is Fluffy.   He is 64 years old this year.  I’ve had him since I was around 8 years old.  Fluffy came from Germany, he used to be completely covered in rabbit fur but over the years a lot of it has been petted away.  Fluffy is a little hard of hearing as one of  his ears falls off  from time to time.  He is my dearest childhood possession.

Fluffy sort of has a Vineyard connection… but doesn’t almost everything in my life 🙂  Ethel Souweine, who was a relative of my mother’s lived on Massasoit Ave in Oak Bluffs.   Her two sons, William and Leon, and her daughter Vivian Carole were all in the army in the 1940’s and 50’s.  Every time one of them would be stationed in, or visit a foreign country, they would bring back a toy for me and for their niece Carolee.   Fluffy was one of those gifts.

Look at that face … his eyes look so real to me.


Nowadays Fluffy lives with the other animals and dolls in a comfy basket on a trunk.  They’re a very close group


Fluffy doesn’t get out much but a case of wanderlust hit him the other day and he thought it would be fun to surprise Chappy by visiting him.


Seeing eye-to eye and nose-to-nose.


After exchanging pleasantries for awhile Fluffy decided to nap before his trip back to his basket family.


Back home with the gang.


Maybe an upcoming post on some of the other basket gang members.
