I proposed the theme of memory, having no idea what I or any of my headbanger friends might do with it. You can check from the links in the sidebar.

I proposed it because memory--well, memory is a terrible thing to lose, and watching my husband unable to pull up some of the best of memories is heartbreaking.


The hat.

The hat is in my header because it and its like are a great part of a lot of memories we have shared. The hat was a gift from one of our daughters, and it has graced his head for nearly every winter  adventure since. Other hats are part of other adventures. There are many.

Does he remember clean-up at the beach?

...or hiking in Scotland?

Our trips to Alaska?

What about the many visits to the kids in Arizona?

How about the snowshoeing trips to Mt. Rainier?

There's the hat!!!!!

Pictures help him to retrieve some of these memories.
But sometimes they are just out of reach.

The loss of one's memories is indeed sad. I am glad you have the photos to remind him of people and places. Mom had Alzheimer's so I have seen the effects of this disease.

I am tearing up this morning Kathy, this is a very touching theme. I know behind those lost memories, Ranney is in there thanking you. You and Ranney are always in my prayers, remember you have a group of sisters who are here for you. I really hope to see you in June, but understand if I don't.

Well done Kathy, this must have been a hard job to post, but still makes you happy when looking back at the happy times.
