It's Monday! What Are You Reading? August 9, 2021 #IMWAYR


It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's an opportunity to visit other blogs and to comment on their reads. And ... you can add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date. And here we are! 


My 90yo MIL passed away last month. My husband, the oldest of 4 and the only one into genealogy, volunteered to bring home her pictures and sort through them. We brought home tubs and tubs, boxes and boxes of pictures. It's been great seeing some old, old ones of his grandparents, greats, and older when they were little, pictures we have never seen before. Luckily, someone back then wrote on the backs, otherwise we would have no idea who these people are. 

But we've also discovered tons of pictures, mostly more current, that were saved that should have been trashed from the get-go—blurry, thumbs in the pic, scenery (no idea where they were), people we don't know. 

We started going through all of our own pictures when my FIL passed 5 years ago. We could see the writing on the wall, so to speak. We didn't want to do the same thing to our own kids. 

How about you, are you a picture taker-saver?

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you all have a good week. 
Happy reading!
