Four Of Us #ThrowbackThursday

Not sure who was taking this picture of the four of us. It must have been Grandpa, or he would have been in the picture. It’s dated 1999, and that would have made him 89, so maybe it was Betty Haley who took it, and Grandpa didn’t feel like being in the picture. Sometimes he didn’t.

The Four of Us

Four of UsThat’s Charlie, Sara, MomGoth (me), and Mom. Hard to believe I was ever that thin and she was ever that plump.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character finds a photograph and tries to work out who the photographer was.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Loverly bunch of cocoanuts!

    I found a photo in one of my old books that I used to buy at rummage stores. It was a brownstone-looking building, about 3-4 stories. A lady was on the sidewalk, maybe someone else, too. She was dressed in Victorian garb, and the whole scene was literally drowned in snow. I had to wonder if it was somehow connceted to the ginormous NYC snowstarm that closed down the city in the late 1800’s. Could this have been from then?

    (Since I moved last, I can’t find anything bookwise. This photo and the accompanying book may well be gone.)

      Oh, I love finding photographs in books! That sure does sound like a picture from the big snow. I hope it turns up soon. 🙂
