EEEk... it's E day

Come on in.... I'll just take a moment to add these pictures from my life that start with the letter E. Then we can have a cup of tea and visit a spell.

                                    'E' stands for equestrian

Not that I am ... I was just doing a quick ride around our yard on my daughters horse, Charlie.

'E' stands for
Elizabethan Gardens
Elbert & I enjoyed the Elizabethan Gardens in Manteo, North Carolina.

'E' stands for
Eiffel Tower                                                                                            
Elbert & Susan went all the way to the top. I chickened out halfway up!!! That thing is scary.
    'E' stands for  embordiery                                                                                                     

An old art that I have enjoyed over the years. This is not my best work... I  promise!!

'E' stands for
Elbert just after he got his commission in the U. S. Navy. He went up through the ranks from seaman to limited duty officer and we were so proud of his ensign stripe on his uniform and his accomplishments.

E stands for Envelope                                                                                                                      
8 cents for airmail. Times have changed in the mailing industry as in everything else. Don't you wish that mailing a letter these days was just 8 cents?

These pictures bring back so many memories for me. When I decided to run through the ABCs  of our life I had no idea how much work or how much fun it was going to be. As you can tell there isn't much going on around my house these days. A gal has gotta pull up something to blog about!!


  1. I think it is a great post.I enjoyed it very much.

  2. I enjoyed it, too! I hope Charlie didn't run through the woods trying to use a tree to swipe you off his back like the last horse I tried to ride!

  3. E= Enjoyed your "E" Day. Do you care if I do that on my blog someday?

  4. Any of you that are interested in doing the ABCs feel free to. I'd love to see your ABCs of Life.

  5. These are Wonderful E's!
    Love the envelope, especially!

  6. I love your alphabet stuff and the old photos.

  7. Love you on the horse! And good memories of the Elizabethan Gardens...great picture of Dad. Love you lots!

  8. I'm enjoying the ABC's of your life. Your pics and memories are wonderful!
