During my recent trip through upstate New York I came across the Sanborn, Tuscarora Nation, United States. When I did a Wikipedia search of Tuscarora I am told about the North Carolina version. I have read several books about the Iroquois Confederation, but didn’t know that there were still tribes in the Northeast. According to the info below there are only 1152 residents left there. … Continue reading Every Picture Has Story – Sanborn, Tuscarora Nation
For this Sunday’s “Every Picture has a Story”, I chose the one above. It was taken towards the end of 1988. Except for my wife’s death last year, this was the most traumatic year of my life. When this picture was taken we were finishing up our 2nd year of marriage, and were attending a wedding of one of the countless nieces and nephews I … Continue reading EPS#4 – 1988, What A Year!

When I recently visited Switchyard Park in my hometown of Bloomington Indiana, it linked my memories of graffiti with some local history that means a lot to me.

In case you forgot he is the groundhog that determines whether we have an early Spring. It had been a couple of … Continue reading EPS#4 – Going To See Punxsy
For this week’s “Every Picture Has A Story”, I give you Starry Night by Vincent Van Gough. The story behind the picture is very emotional for me. I don’t really remember when I first saw the picture above, but it immediately drew me in. It was just something about all the crude swirls. When I read about Van Gough’s life the hook went in deeper. … Continue reading EPS#3 – Starry Night & A Mini Meltdown
The Story – Calming The Savage Beast My late wife was a picture puzzle addict from the get go. Over our 35-year marriage, there was almost no time that there wasn’t picture puzzle pieces strewn across her “puzzle table”. Yes, she had a table specifically in her hobby room for that purpose. Frequently during those 35 years she tried to convince me to take up … Continue reading EPS #2 – Every Picture Has a Story… A Picture In Pieces
To my regular readers (God bless you), it is pretty obvious that I love my special projects. And from your responses, I pretty sure you do too. Special Projects are where I can let my Aspie traits shine. I love studying things in detail, and Special Projects is where I do multiple posts about the same subject. Some of my Special Projects have run their … Continue reading Every Picture Has A Story (EPS)#1 – An Introduction
