Snapshot Saturday--January 29, 2011

This meme is hosted by Alyce from At Home With Books

To participate in Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken. Photos can be old or new, and can be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. All Alyce asks is that you don't post random photos that you find online.

This is 1965 on a hike (yes, he brought a book along)

This was taken  of us last month at our local beach

So, last week I had a photo of me and my brother for his Birthday and today it's my dad and I because yesterday was my dad's Birthday. My dad is one of the biggest readers I know; he usually has a few books going (usually history or spy novels).

Oh great pictures! I love that!

Alyce said...

Both photos are great! Love that you included one of him reading!

Great photos! If I went hiking, I would definitely take a book with me, haha.

Here's my Saturday Snapshot!

Heh, fun pictures. What is it with dads and history/spy novels? My dad was the same way! He'd collect them, read them, and then shelve them alphabetically.

Diane--I like seeing people's family members too!

Sheila and Alyce--Thank you

Jess--I would only take a book hiking if I knew we were stopping for a while at the top

Trish--That's funny, my dad shelves and puts them in order, too

Hi!
Great snapshots. You have to have a book every where you go in case you have some extra time. I carry one in my car. Have a great day!

Gotta love a guy who takes a book along on a hike! A man after my own heart.

Great photos!

Sherrie--I do always have a book with me in my purse. It comes out whenever I have a few spare minutes (even waiting in a line if I'm on my own)

Bev--It is a good trait, isn't it!
