There are so many things we treasure in our lives. Sometimes we try to hang on to everything! Carmi this week, over in writteninc. has called for photographs of what we treasure.
There are, inevitably, pets.
This is my beloved Wags (OK, our daughter named her!) She came as a puppy about 40 years ago and stayed with us for 11 years. She designated herself as my dog, protected me and made sure I was in sight most of the time! A Springer Spaniel/Border Collie cross, when out on a walk she was never quite sure whether to round us up or retrieve us! I cried for a week when she got a tumour and had to be put to sleep.
This photo, which is a copy of a scanned copy, and not particularly photographically good, is a very treasured picture. It shows my parents, and my much-loved mother-in-law, plus my daughter and my parents' other two grandchildren. The photo was taken in 1970, and sadly only the two girls are still alive. Oh yes, and mine is the one with her mouth open!!
