Black & White Wednesday: Oliver Twist

As a young girl, "Oliver Twist" was one of my favorite stories.  Second only to Laura Ingalls Wilder's "Little House on the Prairie" series that is.  Looking back, I realize the appeal lied in the fact that I could identify with the protagonists on a very personal level.  My childhood, including a parental abduction to Alaska, are mirror reflections from pieces of both of these stories.  Strangely enough, I read these books prior to being whisked away by my father to the Alaskan wilderness.  Hmmmmm......  Hadn't made that connection before.  Quite a bit of irony there.  Anyhow, have a memoir about this experience, partially complete, with a well-known publisher interested.  Perhaps one day I'll finish it......

As usual, and characteristic of my "yip-yappee" nature, I digress. :)

Featured above, in my biased opinion, is an outright adorable nostalgic heartwarming pic of mySamuelson.  A friend from our church snapped it 3 years ago as we walked through the door for Easter service.  Am so thankful this friend got a shot, for at the time Miss Gracie was but 1 and just walking; The challenge of juggling 2 active children had recently hit!  Needless to say, the camera was accidentally forgotten back at the house that morning!
