My new to me car

This is a 2005 Buick Allure that I purchased yesterday.  Surely this will carry me into my retirement!!  It is a smooth and comfortable car.  I will try it out on my trip to Grand Manan Island just south off New Brunswick near the end of August with my daughter and step daughter.

Could have used a landscaper

From this week's Sepia Saturday, I picked up on the theme of an old car.  This old and battered picture is my father sitting in the car, I have no idea who the child is in the foreground.  It reminds me of a scene from Bonny and Clyde.  To see more interesting pictures, go to sepiasaturday.blogspot.com

We have come a long way

As my label states, I have gone out on a limb, if you will pardon the pun.  I guess what I am trying to convey is that these men had to use their physical strength to move things where as the men of the shuttle era literally just pushed buttons and it got them straight to the moon and back.  These men on a log jam seems so far away from that era, but really weren't.  We haved moved by leaps and bounds in just a short time when we think about it.  This picture is from the collection of Charles Asoyuf "Old Pictures of the Miramichi" on Facebook. Enjoy more pictures by going to SepiaSaturday.blogspot.com.  Blogger is still not letting me comment after I leave an entry on Sepia Saturday, very frustrating.....

Tabusintac, home of CHARLOTTE TAYLOR

This past weekend, I took a trip to Tabusintac, NB.  It is the home of CHARLOTTE TAYLOR, she is known as the Mother of Tabusintac, almost everyone can trace their connection with her.  In fact, my son, David married one of her descendants, Kim and my grand daughter Katie Rose now is one of her descendants.  This particular spot is not far from where Charlotte  was buried.

Our trip to Pictou, Nova Scotia




My daughter likes Dave Gunning's singing.  He is also a historian of the Pictou area.  These are only a couple of sites we visited when we were in Pictou. The bottom picture depicts the rock who took Howard Smith's life when he tried to blast the rock to make way for a field back when the early settlers came to habitat the area.  Dave Gunning's songs tries to teach people the hardships that were had back then.
