About Me

My photo
Delta, British Columbia, Canada
I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.

ABC Wednesday - K is for Kisses

To see other ABC Wednesday participants' contributions, visit Mrs. Nesbitt here.

We're a very "kissy" sort of family. We'll kiss our dogs, our kids, our mates, well just about anyone. Here is an assortment I found in my files that I thought I'd share with you all.



A new Daddy kisses his first child, baby Jamie in 1976.


That little baby girl is now all grown up and kisses her own baby boy.

Second daughter Jaclyn kisses her beloved boxers, Kaycee and Star. (circa 1989)


Grandson Noah photographs his Mommy and Daddy kissing the night before his sister arrived.


Noah kisses his koala bear sent to him all the way from Australia.

Next to kissing Mommy, kissing Gramma is the best!

Hi Nancy, yes, wouldn't we all! all his Mommy has to do is wet it with some sort of product and comb it through. voila! bouncy curls. I sure hope little Eden gets them!

AVCR8TEUR said...

What a happy post about kissing and love. You've captured some wonderful family moments.

Regarding your comment on my post. Kayaking is a strenuous activity if you have never tried it and if you happen to be in kayak for two, make sure your partner is paddling in the same direction. :D

Momma said...

I think the world needs more families like yours. :-)

Peace - D

Russell said...

Nice, nice, nice.... I kept thinking of the song "What the World Needs Now, Is Love, Sweet Love..." Okay. That's not the title but you know what I mean! I think it was a Burt Bachrach / Hal David song... Dionne Warwick, perhaps?? Ahhh... Those were the days (hey, another great song!!).

Great post. A perfect "K" topic!

San said...
