This is an example of the saying, "No amount of frosting can fix a bad cake."  The experiment with painting on an ink drawing would have worked out better if the drawing had been more solid.

The photo reference was a picture +Peter Wloch took of his mother on her 90th birthday.  She has the timeless beauty of a movie star.  I plan to make another attempt at her portrait.  Maybe this time I'll stick to what I know better - the pencils.

Looking through the (dirty) windshield of my son's Miata - he was driving the Sunset Cruise at Elkhart Lake's Road America and had a GREAT time! (I got him a ticket for a surprise - who's a cool mom :)

+Peter Wloch I know!  I know!  what a stupid thing to do!  LOL
he's a sensible young man though, I think I can trust him not to hurt himself.  Besides, at 26 he's past listening to his old mom much anymore.

Some things fun, some things pricelessly sentimental.
There was a metal box in the garage at the bottom of one of the jumbled up cardboard boxes.  My son broke into it for me and we found my maternal grandmother's wedding band from 1917.  It had a little note in my grandpa Hite's writing "Walter to Sarah 12/25/17  Wedding day".  It was found in what I must assume is a real Bakelite jewelry store box.  The inside of the ring was inscribed.  You can be sure it is not in the garage anymore!

Another find among Grandpa Hite's things was this little bottle of "Hite's Remedy."  He was from Virginia and that's where this was manufactured.  It must have been some relative.

+Patsy Priebe Oh, I can so relate to dealing with parents' and in-laws' possessions:-) It can be a never ending task unless you bite the bullet and be ruthless:-) I know that your GGG's correspondence will give you lots of pleasure and be very interesting no matter what he wrote!

Oh my, it was impossible to get to the end of this movie without tears.  *Not*  your usual prison movie.

These snaps would come under the heading I Can't Believe Daddy Did That With Us
My dad was an inveterate breaker of rules.  Family outings usually involved getting pictures of the kids sitting on machines after crossing Do Not Enter construction zones or dangling them off of cliffs and bridges.

My brother told me about the time in 1965 on a train trip that Daddy took him to the place in between the cars and then dangled him outside to see the oncoming train better!

And yet we lived and now it seems extremely funny!

In 1965 the St. Louis arch was finished, and on a family trip that summer my dad stopped off so we could see it still under construction.

Sorry, but I don't even remember what movie this came from, but he was the little boy in the movie theater loudly eating popcorn behind the main characters.

That's my boy!
He said driving the course was exactly like the game and that he had to really concentrate. (that's him concentrating)

It's amazing to think - my mother was born only 6 years after this Civil War relative was taking his picture in his old uniform!

I can't even imagine what an astounding experience it must have been for +gordon thomson and his wife Mary to come upon a piper in the mountains.  You can read his account in his post.
Here, Gordon, is another piper playing The Flower of Scotland.

#ASIGHTFORSOUREEYES  At this time of the year there is Highland Shows all over the north of Scotland. The town next to ours  was holding there show so we thought we would head for the mountains. Away up in the mountains we heard the Skirl of the Pipes, We just had to see where they were. We turned the corner on one of the highest peaks and there he was standing on this stone playing " Flower of Scotland" with cars parked all over the place . When he stopped playing everyone left and we started talking to them . He came from Sweden and his girlfriend came from Croatia and what a great couple they were and they were on there way to the Shetland Islands. Have a great week our friends and enjoy yourselves.

These pictures would come under the heading, "Neat Things Daddy Took Us To See That I Didn't Appreciate At The Time"

My dad took these pictures in 1966 driving with the kids way out in the boondocks of Kansas.  Notice the tiny little man in the engineer's cockpit?  Big Brutus was the 2nd largest electric shovel of the time and was used for coal mining.  They had to assemble it on site from 150 train car loads of pieces.  (from Wiki)
