SWS: Photo hunt comes up empty...almost

Don't you hate it when that happens?

I had the cutest photo for today...one of the kids (#3?) in a stroller, in the park, with Uncle Sam.

He was clutching a flag, (the child, not U.S.) and looking quite concerned about the extravagantly dressed stranger leaning into him. He had on a white sailor hat, and...

...it was Americana, all the way!

Well, my two-hour photo hunt did not end with finding the fondly remembered snap, but I did have fun going through years of memories... Maybe the child (#3?) will be off work today, and we can stage it again. Do you think I can get him to put on a white sailor hat, clutch a flag , and look up at Uncle Sam in that same way he did when he was 2? After all, that was 19 years ago. Funny~to his mom, it seems like yesterday...

Happy 4th to everyone in the POPrs Family! Funny how those Superior Snaps just disappear, huh? Or, in my case, it's my memory that's going...I just don't know where I stored the snaps for "safe keeping."

Bummer you couldn't find it - but the one you did share is nice as well!

Thanks for playing along!

You know you'll find that picture as soon as you forget about it and stop looking for it. You'll have to put it up when you get it now that you've talked about it. Happy Fourth!

The picture will be in the last place you look for it. I hate it when I can't find that certain picture (especially when I just saw it the day before.) The one you posted is great though. Love the little guy flashin' the peace sign. Good lookin' guys and pups! Happy SWS!
