This is one of the "best" photos ever to appear on this site Mr.
Rouse. I went back and re-read your previous post about "Aunt Ruby"
and it's easy to understand why this snapshot means so much to you.
Thanks for sharing your memories of such a wonderful lady with the
rest of us.

I just LOVE this picture!!! I too lost a most precious Aunt a few
years ago and I still get choked up when I sit and look through her
old photographs. Oh, how I would love to stumble across one I have
never seen before! Great, great picture!!!

Your Aunt Ruby must have been one heck of a lady. I guess most of us
have had someone like her in our lives, and it's always such a shock
when we lose them. Snapshots like this are absolutely precious.

This is why I love this site so much. Mr. Rouse, I think it's
wonderful how you go beyond the basic nuts-and-bolts of photography
and inject personality and feeling into your writings. Thanks so
much for sharing such personal images and memories with the rest of

My grandparents came to this country almost 70 years ago in search
of a better life for my mother and my uncle, and unfortunately they
were gone long before I was born. Although I never had the chance to
get to know them I feel like I have a good understanding of who they
were and what they stood for after hearing my mom tell many stories
of their lives as we paged through several books filled with
wonderful old photographs similar to this one. Those grainy,
wrinkled up black-and-white snapshots are the most precious
possessions my mom has, and some day they will be mine. Today's
picture is simply fantastic sir!

Thank you for bringing such joy into my life on a daily basis Mr.
Rouse. A real serious health condition has kept me more or less
housebound for the past two years plus, and your websites (yes, I
read your blog too!) give me inspiration and keep me entertained on
those long, dreary days when the pain is almost too much to bear. I
don't always agree with the things you write, but you always make me
think. And there have been a few times when your writings have led
me to change my mind on an issue. I love your websites and I feel
blessed to be able to share in the richness of your life and
experiences in this very small way. May God continue to bless you
and your wonderful family.
