Birthday Girl!

Hi All! As you have seen, I'm not winning any awards for my volume of postings on the blog. I'm embarrassed that it has been a month since the last post... I have no excuse other than I've suffered a lack of inspiration. So I come to you today with a task to accomplish! Today would have been Melinda's 61st birthday. On Facebook last month on the 6-month anniversary of her passing, I promised to dig through my photo archives and pull out some images that are little-to-never seen. We dated for over 2 years before we married, so that is 2 years of pictures before the blog started, so some pretty fertile ground! So as a present to YOU, those who knew her from work, play, relations, or didn't know her at all but are running across this accidently, here she is in her glory. Know that she was a special woman who touched all that knew her! Photos presented here in approximate order they were taken...
