Another look into the past

I have a new interested reader on this blog.

She likes old pictures. This one is part of Dennis Lagasse IV’s collection of about 100 pictures. I posted them all on this blog which has more than 700 posts.

I told my new reader she could start from the start. Somewhat brillant if she likes old pictures because I have collected a few thousands along the way.

I wrote that much so someone might find the blog and get all excited. I just have to sit and wait like a fisherman although I don’t like fishing.

Writing is what I do best beside waiting for someone to comment.

I could tell you that the man with the white hat is my great-grandfather but that might not get you all excited unless you are looking for Hector Lamothe who married Ida Lagasse who were Lucille Lamothe’s parents. Hector is on this picture also.
