Less the last, but other.....

Long ago, Christmas '88'd I'g guess

The three of them, Henry, Kate and Emily. Couple years ago.
My 8th grade school, around the time I was there. One room, 1-8 grades
A cute couple, seem made for each other. 
"I love genetics, mix a species here, one there...."
A fishing blog, right? A decent 15" brookie, sacrificed for lunch. 

More, doubtfully any better, another time.

  1. That brook trout looks like a delicious lunch.

  2. Good memories and a nice size fish is a pleasant way to either start or end the day.

  3. Had fish right out of the lake to frying pan only once. Memorable and wonderful.

    Nice couple indeed.

  5. To take a page from Bob Hope--Thanks for the Memories. Sometime you must write about the experience of a one room school. As for that brook trout, sorry I wasn't there to share the lunch! Wow!

    1. I will, if I remember. It was an odd school, it was 1-2nd grade, then 7th and 8th. The middle schoolers were taught at Stinson Beach elementary.....

  6. Memories! I love looking at other people's old family photos. I guess that's because I only have a couple of them (from my childhood). Trout for lunch, count me in!

    1. Fried, with bacon grease, with a side of potatoes, nothing better.

  7. I love trout. (In olive oil for me, though).

    Love that first photo especially.

  8. Waxing nostalgic I see. Hope your health is good. I went off trout many years ago and can't stand the sight now. Long boring story. And I adore seafood and riverfood.

    1. Yeah, what passes in Montana for springtime should be called the Alaskan term 'breakup'.....mud and uncovered delights from the past winter. So nostalgia was the way to go.
      Do tell about trout.....I don't rate them top either, I like them smoked, done properly with cold smoke and alder, but, what's your story?

  9. Seeing such a fine selection of pictures is a treat.

    It's hard for me to see '88 as long ago since I remember it so clearly as the year our son went off to university.

    The three of them are looking happy in this one. I know you have two daughters but not a son. Is Henry your son-in-law?

    Good heavens, I attended a one room schoolhouse too, then a school with portable classrooms, and later a three room school (1 and 2, 3-5, then 7 and 8). The small schools were a good experience for anyone interested in learning subjects beyond their usual grade level.

    Your fourth photo speaks volumes - a beautiful couple.

    Yes, life goes on and you have another lovely child to love.

    .. and a fish. It's a nice fish.

    1. No, Henry is my son, standing with his sisters. This was taken a year or so after he got out of the army, he was a ranger, tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. A gentle soul, despite being built by the same firm that made Stonehenge.
