Saturday Snapshot - January 22

Saturday Snapshot is  hosted by Alyce @  At Home With Books. To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. No random photos that you find online.


Both of my brothers have passed away: (Ron-left in 2009) and (Jim-right in 2006). Today would have been Ron's 69th birthday, so posting this photo seemed appropriate. Photo was taken about 10 year's ago at Jim's home.

  1. Thanks for sharing, Diane. I love how photos can capture moments and bring back memories.

    Remembering a departed loved one's birthday is one of those nostalgic moments.

    Thanks for visiting my Saturday Snapshot.

  9. Sad and happy... that's how I feel when I look at old photos of family that are no longer with us. Sad they are gone but happy I have the photo to trigger a pleasant memory from when it was taken.

    Lovely photo, thank you for sharing.

  12. I am so sorry you have lost both of your brothers...sooo young, that is so sad.

    That was a wonderful photo.

    Can I ask a really stupid question? I am asking you because you know me better than other blogs that i follow that use the same term but what does "meme" mean???? I see it everywhere and I bet I just gave everyone a good laugh by asking that question! :)

  14. Cat....the term "meme" is used for a type of post that appears on multiple blogs on the same day.

    Thanks for the nice comment about my brothers.

    Leslie, Sari, Helen and Mary --thanks for taking the time to comment on this somewhat sad day. It means a lot to me.

  17. This is a wonderful photo. It's nice that you have it. I expect looking at it is probably difficult and sad for you right now. I hope you are doing okay this weekend. Please take care of yourself.
