The Marine Corps Silent Drill Team at #attention as commanded by my father, the Drill Instructor (far left).
This was probably around 1949/50 right before he left service. And when dad barked an order at us growing up you best believe we heeded the call! #dailypicturetheme #attention

Every cat I’ve ever had has been caught at least once in an elegant #curl in the bathroom sink. Is it the coolness of the porcelain? The snuggly shape and curvature? #dailypicturetheme

I may have been to 14 countries so far but when I get the itch to #travel Iceland is my go-to place. Is it my Nordic genes that call me back again & again? Or is it the otherworldly landscape that changes every time I go? I just know, like Germany, it feels like home to me. #dailypicturetheme

To some it’s just an #empty room but for me it’s my new, completely paid for, home. I’ll never have to worry about not having a place to live. I can hang pictures! I can paint whatever colors I choose! I thank my late uncle every day for generously looking out for me. #dailypicturetheme

I’m glad I had the chance when I did to climb up to the Acropolis in Greece as my knees couldn’t handle it now. Some may look and see #ruin everywhere but imagination lets one see what was meant. Like the elegant temple of Erechtheion with its Caryatid columns! Amazing! #dailypicturetheme

What I remember about the men I grew up around was they were always “dressed”. No casual clothes like jeans and a t-shirt. Here my Grospa (German great-grandfather) and Pop (my grandfather) are sporting their daily wear - a full #suit . To be comfy one's jacket was removed. #suit #dailypicturetheme

In 1948 a British fishing boat fought the choppy waters near Djúpalónssandur beach during a severe storm and lost. Rusty remnants of the boat are still scattered there and remain untouched. No #caution or warning signs needed. Iceland knows how to respect the 14 lost sailors. #dailypicturetheme

I bought a new #lamp a while back. Of course, the little one had to check if it was one of those newfangled bulbs that are too chill. Or, hopefully, one that made it into a marvelous sun lamp. Sorry, Binx - it’s the former!

Turf houses are #grass roofed houses. It’s tight quarters but warm and cozy inside. To the left of the entrance was family living quarters with fires in between for cooking. Right was room for animals which added more heat. No beds though - sleep was sitting up against the wall.

My pictures are in their #frame but where to hang them? Always my big decision! My autographed Maryland Gov Ritchie (1876-1936) was in my first apartment in 1969. He’s been with me ever since. The 5 penguins and Smudge are pretty old too. Kellis Campbell artwork is a new fave. #dailypicturetheme

Every time I look at a photo of this dessert from the Linden Restaurant in Iceland, my thoughts #drift back to an almost perfect meal. Arctic char fresh from the sea! And who thought up a chocolate mousse with raspberry sauce, with watermelon pieces and white chocolate foam? #dailypicturetheme

I had always wanted to go to London (not knowing at the time that my paternal side is from England). So my first trip found me there on Remembrance Day. No traffic so I could walk in the street, too! I looked up and there it was - Big Ben! Oh, you know I had a #tear in my eye! #dailypicturetheme

A spring snow #storm usually discards its presence soon after. But it’s so pretty while it lasts - like all the trees were dusted with powdered sugar! #dailypicturetheme

Unpredictable weather in northern Iceland means be ready for anything. Traveling through Skagafjörður we had the bright sun on our backs, then dark clouds and a #shower , then a rainbow with the sun again. #dailypicturetheme

It’s been a #long time since I’ve been back to Switzerland. I still remember my first look at the majestic Alps when they fully came into view. They start small and grow and grow and grow the further you go into them. Must be my genes but it’s my favorite part of the world! #dailypicturetheme

We forget sometimes that our parents and their parents were once young as well.
My favorite picture of my grandmother and grandfather sharing a #hug in an unknown location somewhere in Maryland. #hug #dailypicturetheme

The motto of every cat:
“If I fit, I #sit !”
And Binkie did a fine job of sitting in an empty shopping tote! #sit #dailypicturetheme

A #tense moment between my older cat and the new kitten during play time! Do they continue to play or will the older cat get mean and attack? They played! A good outcome! #dailypicturetheme #tense

Thank you to everyone that took the time to wish this sage elder (now 74yo and going strong) a happy birthday. Your kind words, wishes and care made me feel very included and noticed today!

One of the saddest things about getting old is there very few left to share it. Each year goes by with fewer cards until there are none. I bought a little square of cake yesterday so I could celebrate today by myself again.
I’m 74 years old today and going for 75! #sadbirthday

I learned to #spell at an early age. I love etymology and find the root source of words fascinating. It always makes me laugh when people #spell something one way but totally mean otherwise. This is one of my favorites. #dailypicturetheme

When the short #skirt trend began way back when I jumped on the wagon so fast. Proper length was fingertip matching hem with your arm by your side. Hard to believe that’s considered “long” today! #dailypicturetheme

One of those idiotic “trends” (for lack of a better word) over the last year or so was users “posting a picture for tax”. (It means you post & I post in return.) Who comes up with this inane crap and why do so many sheeple follow and use it?
Anyway, here’s a picture for #tax .😁 #dailypicturetheme

Pompeii, Italy is a must-see if you’re ever in the area. Be forewarned, though! There is virtually no shade anyway. The sun was intense as I felt it #sear my city girl skin. Between the sun and heat I understood how Pompeiians must have felt when the eruption started. #dailypicturetheme
