Smile for the Camera! Día de San Valentín

This card is from my oldest daughter Sharon. I believe she made it for me her first year in high school (about 1994)for a Spanish assignment! I have been given many hand made cards (my FAVORITE) from my children over the years. This is the only one I have in Spanish.
Her handwriting is so pretty!

Gracias querida hija!

I can see that this is indeed a special treasure. So few of the cards and things that my daughters made for me survived our travels during their school years. So nice that you have these treasures. It looks like your Sharon (I have a Sharon also) is quite artistic --- and a good student.

Thank you Joan for your kind comment. I am indeed very proud of my daughter Sharon.

The Family

The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together. ~Erma Bombeck

Genealogy Pox, author unknown


SYMPTOMS: Continual complaint as to need for names, dates and places. Patient has a blank expressions, sometimes deaf to spouse and children. Has no taste for work of any kind, except feverishly looking through records at libraries and courthouses.
Has a compulsion to write letters. Swears at mailman when he doesn't leave mail. Frequents strange places such as cemeteries, ruins, and remote desolate country areas. Makes secret night calls and hides phone bills from spouse. Mumbles to self. Has strange, faraway look in eyes.


TREATMENT: Medication is useless. This disease is not fatal, but gets progressively worse. Patient should attend genealogy workshops, subscribe to genealogical magazines and be given a quiet corner in the house where he/she can be alone.

REMARKS: The unusual nature of this disease is that the sicker the patient gets, the more he or she enjoys it!
