Skywatch Friday


This week’s Skywatch Friday shot is from my mother’s beloved Idaho. She grew up there and moved for a time and came back when she and my Dad retired. She’s been gone for some time and I think of her every day. Most of what I am today is because of her. DSC00043

She was a natural Forest Ranger’s wife. She loved the mountains and loved her family. She always told Dad that she would live anywhere but she had to be able to see mountains.


We lived in some really out of the way places sometimes in Forest Service houses. I remember when we moved from Coyote, New Mexico to Payson, Arizona and you know what. The houses we lived in were exactly the same!!

She loved her kids, her grandkids, and  her many nieces and nephews, and their kids too!!


Here she is giving Logan a lift.

She had her health issues but she never let them slow her down.


Rest in Peace Mom

    This Skywatch is a wonderful tribute. On starry nights I walk up back alone and look for the Milky Way and search for Mom and Dad. There up there somewhere. Ah… those memories never fade. Comfort for you.

    Nice skywatch image but an incredible tribute to your mother. Most of us baby boomers were fortunate enough to have loving parents that gave themselves to us and for us. Both of my parents are gone and a day rarely passes that I don’t think about them. Have a blessed week-end.

    What a sweet post about your mom and how fortunate you were to have her in your life for so long! I lost mine when I was so young that I can’t even remember her except through black and white pictures.

    Nice tribute, brother! I miss her every day and it makes me sad she isn’t here to meet Georgie. Oh how she would have loved that little girl. In some pictures of Georgie she looks so much like mom. I can’t believe it has been 12 years.
