I liked all the little cat angels I made before Christmas. But nobody bought them, so they are now my own decoration for next Christmas! I figure just seeing wings on a cat was too surprising for most folks. Some did laugh however.
So I'm starting again and leaving off the wings!

Young woman in Galveston in 1912.
The photo was posted on Facebook, saying they were interested to see what people wore when they went to the beach then. But Galveston was a thriving port city at that time. Not that people wouldn't go to the beach, but it wasn't as much a tourist place then.
My grandmother was a young woman in Galveston in 1912. Well, she had recently married my grandfather, and then a few years after that, she would give birth to my father. Here's a photo of her in 1906 with her first son, Elmore. She is wearing her wedding dress!

In the mountains of truth you will never climb in vain: either you will get up higher today or you will exercise your strength so as to be able to get up higher tomorrow. -Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche, philosopher (1844-1900)
