Aren't Blogs Wonderful?

This is why..........

I've been thinking often about my dear friend Jo Ellen who passed away so suddenly last month.  Then some one on a blog mentioned Hummers better known as Humvees.  That reminded me that I had taken a photo of Jo Ellen in her Humvee some months ago.  She was a Humvee kind of Grandma! It wasn't a particularly good photo but in the light of what has happened, I hoped I still had it among my pictures on my PC somewhere.

Well I looked and looked.  No luck.  Then I checked my camera because I often keep photos on there instead of deleting them right away.  No luck!  Then I remembered that I probably had taken it with my other camera before I got this one for Christmas.  So I checked there.  Still no luck. Disappointing.

Then lying in bed last night, I had a brainwave.  What If I posted it on my blog? 

So today I scrolled back pages and pages and there it was!  From a whole year ago!

Can you see her just peeking out of the window?  If only I had known  what would happen a year later.

Not so exciting to some, but to me precious!

Glad you found the photo, Chris. What a great invention cameras are -- to help keep our memories alive long after beloved ones are gone.

I am glad you found it. Sometimes things like this happen and we have nothing left but memories.

She sounds like she was a fun grandma to me. I am glad for the blogs, too. Not only for saving memories, but for all the new friends I have made.

Blogging is wonderful indeed and what better proof than this. What a happy memory of your friend.

On the theme of happy memories, you may be unaware thet Google Street View has opened up about 98% of UK roads in the past week. You'll be able to see Flamborough Head and your old haunts! x

So sorry to hear about your dear friend. Glad you found the photo.

Sorry I haven't been around for a while. This week has been very busy and hectic. Hope you had a relaxing week-end. And thanks for your visits.

Chris J said: Thanks for your tip Gillian. I went over to Flamborough this afternoon and had a good look around. Not many changes really, just a few more bungalows. Wish they'd gone down to the beach and had a look around the caves! Keep hoping I'll get back there one more time -- for real.
