With over 18,000 photographs already converted to digital format, I am trying to share some with my website visitors. Of course, they are primarily showing family members across the years. In the future I intend to add some of the images I have taken on some of our vacation trips, so keep coming back and, as time permits, I will keep adding more images to these and other online albums. Thank you for visiting with me today. - Roger
These first online photo ablums show what has been going on in our lives recently:
Roger's Birthday 2012 - 129 pictures (mainly of flowers) with Roger and Janice Baxter as they spend a beautiful spring afternoon touring the Ceiner Gardens in Kernersville, North Carolina.
Although we have both been "under the weather" for most of the last 3 weeks, we took a slow stroll around our yard late yesterday and these 21 pictures show some of what we saw.
Hereís a link to an online photo album showing Mildred Spencerís 2012 birthday celebration. It has 70 photographs that includes most everyone who attended as well as the table decorations, menu, etc., plus a video of everyone singing "Happy Birthday" to Mildred and her blowing out the candles ... just 3 this year - skipping over those first 90!

These next online photo ablums were taken during our recent holiday period travels:
While visiting various cemeteries looking for ancestors I came across this little museum filled with artifacts from the days of my grandparents ... and it seemed quite fitting to reflect upon how those ancestors probably made use of these sorts of things most every day of their lives.

Included are gravestones and high resolution images of a grave locator diagram and a listing of members of the Merrell family grave sites.
A Spring Walk Through Bethabara Park - this full screen slideshow displays some of the sights in a Winston Salem, NC, park on a beautiful, warm spring afternoon. This album shows the hillside just west of the first Moravian settlement in North Carolina in early colonial days. Included are wild flowers, huge hollow trees, and a pair of ducks meandering a quiet stream in the park, plus spring flowers in our own yard.
A Late Spring Snow and Roger's Birthday 2011 - a short full screen slideshow of spring flowers and interior decorations, a sudden late spring snow (that was thankfully gone in a few hours - the poor flowers!), and Roger's 60th birthday.

A Tour of Bethabara - a photo album of Roger and Janice Baxter spending a beautiful fall afternoon touring the Bethabara early colonial settlement and the Mill Creek Pond in Winston Salem, North Carolina.

The Puppy Sisters Reunion - a photo album of the recent return of the Puppy Sisters to visit their foster home where they lived for 9 weeks this summer ... and fun they had with all of their neighborhood friends that came to see them.

The Puppy Sisters - until now these have been only linked to on a separate page. But now here, COVERING ALL 9 WEEKS OF THEIR TIME WITH US, they are in all of their feistiness, growing like crazy, expanding their world every day, gobbling down all their dog food and select garden vegetables, and getting into every bit of trouble they can find. ALBUM HAS NOW BEEN FURTHER EXPANDED to include 6 weeks of continued growth at their new permanent home ... with their new Mommy, big brother-dog, and step-cats. These two girls have grown!
Butterflies in the Garden - also see new photos in the Pumpkin album and in the Goldfinches at the sunflowers album below.
Our Pumpkin in the Sky - watch it grow and turn orange. Covers its growth from egg size to basket ball size atop a 8 foot high trellis. Album now includes scenes since it has been harvested and now decorating our dining table.
