I decided to go through some of my mom's old picture albums, scan interesting photos, and throw away any pictures in which I didn't recognize the people, or in which the quality was so poor they were worthless.
I'm really sorry that Mother, in her later years, wrote on the pictures like she did. And yet, I guess it makes them unique; it puts her signature on them.
If I were writing stories about the pictures, I'd have put this in my other journal, but I simply wanted to share some of my favorite old shots.
Going through albums this way, it's disappointing to find some of the pictures faded until they're hardly there at all. And some get stuck in the album until you can't remove them without tearing them. That's why I figured it'd be best to scan my favorites, so they don't deteriorate even more.
