Found

These are from another project I’m working on. I have a big lot of photos I bought online, and after receiving them, it became clear that they belonged to two families. And it’s possible it’s just one family. I’ve identified two main family groups and am looking for a connection between them.

This is one group, all photos taken about 1942, probably in Illinois. If this is your family, please contact me. I would love to return the photos to you!

Jared, Esther, and Bill Lyon circa 1942
Jared Tyner Lyon (1902-1968) married Esther Harriet Anderson (1901-1969) in 1924. The boy is their son, who may still be living.

Viola Lyon circa 1942

Viola Susan Tyner (1872-1963) married William Edgar Lyon (1870-1926). I’m still trying to identify the young man in the last photo.

These were sitting on the loading dock one morning, when I got to work.

Medusa Lamp

Medusa Lamp

The plastic shades on my cheap-ass medusa lamp were crumbling. I couldn’t find replacements (I’m not spending a million damn dollars on shades for a lamp that cost $20). I removed the shades and replaced the bulbs with LED vanity bulbs. LED Edison bulbs would work, too.

Had a bath. Almost died.

Comatose

Thomas got a bath last weekend. My mom visited, and she’s allergic to him, so I always give him a bath before she comes. He was a very good boy for her visit, but when she left, he was absolutely worn out. Being a good host is hard work.

Thrifting

Thrifting

Both of these pairs of jeans are allegedly the same size. In case you were still wondering why women hate to shop for clothes. It’s maddening. That said, the pair that fit me (that did not have fantasy sizing) had real, functional pockets.

Northern Sky at Sunrise

This was from last Monday. I took the dog out for his last potty break before leaving for work, and the sky was doing very lovely things.

Tacket Binding and Photo Albums

Tacket binding using a recycled encyclopedia cover. I’m planning on doing more of these, using the same encyclopedia set.

Sorting Photos

Photo Albums

I also spent the weekend sorting photos and getting a start on putting them into albums. Just when I thought I was finished sorting, I found another box of photos. And then I realized I’m still missing a stash, but I have no idea where they are.

PB and Apple

Haz a Want

I’ve been obsessed with Granny Smith apples and peanut butter, lately. Thomas says that is, coincidentally, his very favorite food. All foods are his very favorite.

Four Leaf Clover

Found a Four Leaf Clover

Found a Four Leaf Clover

I was walking Thomas in the rain, and he was taking his sweet time sniffing around, so I entertained myself by looking for four leaf clovers. I found one! I haven’t found one since I was a little kid.

There are finally a few things blooming in my garden. I think this may be it for the summer, though, because literally nothing else is growing. Everything I planted from seed came up, then… Nothing… Two months later, they’re still all tiny little seedlings. I have no idea why they’re stunted, but this year was not a good garden year.
