  1. Nice pictures, Veronica! Love the kitty for 'cat tax'. Yep, I remember rotary phones. We had one that was very similar to that one.

  9. Ah, a rotary phone. I once had a middle school class that had one as a prop and had no idea how it worked. I demonstrated. They were astonished.

  11. Dearest Veronica,
    Lovely images and that kitty reminded me of our first male kitty that used to walk on a leash. He loved it.
    The food always looks yummy and you look so beautiful in Macau.
    How those years pass us by...!
    Hugs,
    Mariette

  30. Hello Veronica, I loved all your photos. The kitty is cute and the Stork is a favorite. The Stork looks different than the stork I have seen here. We had a similar phone. Pretty flowers and Aloe plant. Thank you for sharing your post. Take care, enjoy your day and the week ahead. PS, I appreciate the comment.

  33. It's nice to still have old photos, and that telephone...takes me back to my childhood.

  34. I'm very familiar with aloe vera. My mother-in-law introduced me to its healing benefits many years ago. It's a wonderful plant. Your neighbor's cat is pretty with those big green eyes. That stork is unusual, and what a beautiful white bird. A cute photo of you. And I love that old phone. I remember them well, and sometimes I miss the good 'ole days and the simple things we had. Thanks for the smile. : )

  37. Ha. Love the old phone. We went to that spot in Macau too - St Pauls?

  38. Yes, I do remember the rotary phones! I think I'm one of the few people who still have a landline, but I've upgraded to a cordless phone. LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I remember those bakelite phones. The cord used to drive me mad the way it kept twisting up. Mimi is a sweet kitty.

  40. adorable cat and milky stork...i enjoy your colorful photos...and the dinner looks so fancy. Have a nice day Veronica ^^

  41. We were just talking about rotary wall phones and table top phones the other day at my son's birthday! I had no idea there were so many species of aloe. you have such beautiful photos.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love the old dial phone. Except I don't miss them. Way back in the day when I was building pipelines all over the us and we didn't have cell phones I would have to find a pay phone with a dial. So I would call the number, and then tell the operator my long account number and the number I was calling and then wait, and wait, and then wait some more. Usually it was outside an very hot or cold. Poor me!!!
    I love how you show your photos with loose organization. I love looking at photos people take, the more the better, and you do great.
    Enjoy your week!!

  43. Remarkable assortment of photos here! I admire your cat, she's a cutie. That aloe is quite unique, I've never actually seen one like it. The rotary phones, I do miss those... and I only see them in old 80s movies I get to watch these days!

  50. Oh yes, of course I still remember such phones, dear Veronica :-DD
    Your nephew has a sweet, pretty kitten, and the Milk Stork is an attractive bird, too! I didn't know there were aloes that bloom so beautifully.
    You should make a big photo book out of your shoe box memories that you can leaf through over and over again.
    All the best and Happy May, Traude

  52. Cat tax was a new one for me, Veronica Lee, and Mimi was a good photo subject. And I also wondered if she was taken for walks with the harness she was wearing in the photo. yes, I do remember the rotary dial phone and it was in my parents home for years, just like the one in your photo here, such a memory.
