Mark and the kids made their way to Canandaigua this afternoon; the kids had plans to meet friends to take in a movie.  I had planned to go, but after dressing and going outside,  my body told me it might not be such a good idea!  My head was aching and my nose was beginning to get a bit stuffy.  Mark advised me it shouldn’t be too bad, as he suffered the same symptoms earlier this week. 

I called my mom later and we chatted for a long time! (sorry, Mom….we just don’t talk and laugh like we used to!!)  One of the things I had wanted to ask her about came to mind and she told me an interesting fact!  Mom’s maternal grandfather’s name was Charles Cunningham.  Mom wasn’t certain what nationality he was, but in looking online, I see the name is Scottish!  She did tell me some relatives visited from Scotland once when she was young and she couldn’t understand them!  This was a surprise to me, as I knew my paternal great-grandmother was Irish.  No wonder I feel such ties to the British Isles!

Well, I shan’t bore you with my whining. Instead, I shall show you photos I took as I drove to Kim’s house the other day!

I wish I would have gotten a better photo of the license plate on this truck.  From information I found online, this plate was probably issued between 1974 and 1984.  I would say this truck is in pretty good shape if it has been sitting for 25  years or so!

  1. Were they yellow plates with blue lettering that sort of looked like PA plates? I vaguely remember those from when I was little, but am not sure about the colors. I love pictures of old, tired vehicles. They always seem like they have a story to tell. The sepia pic is great!
