“Uh-huh, Uh-huh, Yo, Yo…”

“He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother”

I took these pictures while at a family reunion in Lake Tahoe last summer. We hiked down Emerald Bay and hung around “Vikingshom”. It was a hot day. The water of Lake Tahoe was frigid beyond all get out. The nieces and nephews had a great time on the beach while us old folks relaxed on picnic benches in the shade of the trees. I don’t know how my family feels about me when I get up all in their grill with the camera, but I l just love our moments together. These are my oldest brothers. Don’t each of them have such a friendly face?



Same shots, different development ( I couldn’t decide which was best):



Since I brought up Vikingshom, here are some shots.

Can you imagine living here?


And then having this in your front yard?


Except, when the rich heiress who built the house lived here, she didn’t have to look at the orange and white floaties.  Just sayin’.

    Our marching band played that song–“He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother”–when I was a junior and Sam was a senior. We got a lot of mileage out of it.

    Fun pictures. Love hearing from you!
