Sherry was kind enough to be born exactly three months before me.
Her annual celebrations give me great ideas, which, alas, I seldom do.
But, this year, I believe I will follow through on several 55 lists.
It’s not my birthday today, but September is my birthday month.
Let’s start with 55 Photographs.
Oh, the places you will go!
One benefit of coming from a large, spread out family is that you just have to visit your people.
Here are 55 cherished memories.
I took each photo and would appreciate you asking before you download.

Carol, you have a wonderful eye. I especially loved Country Bible Church, Duart Castle and Troy, ID (the textures, wow!) I’d like to download the last one. Blessings, Hope
Beautiful!! Your photos make me want to see Oregon. Do you still have people in Franklin, Tennessee? We will be living about 15 miles from there in Murfreesboro. Perhaps it will be easier for us to finally meet face to face?Great idea for celebrating your birthday.Blessings,Sandy
@hopeinbrazil – Thanks, Hope. And yes, of course!
@secros60 – I do have people in Franklin, but they are relatives by love instead of blood. As a child I visited Mufreesboro, but all I remember is the name! Oh, Sandy, it is *beautiful* out there. But you don’t need me to tell you that! I hope you enjoy this week.
The Bridge of Sighs…a better name would be The Bridge of Envious Groans! You are a spectacular photographer, Carol! And did I love seeing Potlatch, Idaho? You betcha!Love,Di
These are great pictures. You have gotten to see some remarkable places. Thanks for sharing your lovely, lovely pictures!
Have we talked Iona & Mull? One of my favorite places! In fact making plans tonight to go back.
