Friday Flashback Photo

Alicia from more than words hosts every Friday a flash back photo. It's for us to check out every one's favorite photo's from the past(you know pre-digital). It's tons of fun looking at every ones pictures so join us by linking up on Mr. Linky over at Alicia's.
This is back in 1995, when I took a trip back to Iowa to see my family. I left Iowa when I was 11 and moved to Oregon. This is my all time favorite Uncle Bill and I. I have fond memories of Uncle Bill. I spent a lot of time at my Aunt and Uncles When I was little. He taught me how to spit, shift a truck and whistle. Going back to see family after all those years was so much fun! I quickly reminded Uncle Bill of all the fond memories I had of these things,all he could do is laugh and hold on tight to those memories too.

I had to laugh at the thought of your Uncle Bill teaching you to spit! :)

You must be an adventurer, living in Alaska. My hubby and I have Alaska on our list of places to one day visit.

I liked your picture of you and your Uncle bill...and I cracked up at him teaching you to "spit"...shift a truck and whistle. Funny.

Thanks for sharing today.

Never did learn to whistle well, but shifting a truck and spitting are darned valuable skills! Love the picture...he was obviously smitten with you.

Hahaha, reading the "spit" made me remember of the movie "Titanic" lol. Great memories Robyn!

I am too late for this but still catching up.

I found your blog through Darcie...
I have to admit I mostly clicked on it because of the name!
We lived in Anchorage a long time ago....a brief but wonderful chapter in this book we are calling 'our life'.
The year was 1983. We stayed for just 2 1/2 years, but a lot happened including the birth of our first baby! Then we moved back to the lower 48 and lived in AZ, NV and finally settled back where we started: The heartland of NE.
So....someday, who knows we may come back for a visit. In the mean time can I just pop in here and say hi now and then?
