Hey gang! Smile

Thought we should have a Throwback Thursday thread here. What is throwback Thursday? Well, each Thursday you can post a picture FROM YOUR PAST.
It could be a picture of you, of your friends, family AND/OR places you have lived or visited.


I'll start today by posting an old photo of Visalia, CA. This is the town where I work at.... a couple years ago grinsmiley

Cool idea, Carol! Olden days Visalia looks nice!

This is the main street of my town, Grayling, in the mid-'60s.

The Arrowhead in 1883


Photograph taken in 2005

This is the "Arrowhead" on the side of the mountain that I could see from my home when I lived in San Bernardino, CA. On a clear day, it was a beautiful sight to see!

What a cool idea, Carol! And great pictures. I love the cars in the picture you posted, Rob.

Here's an old, old church in Ionia:



And this is the music shop where I used to buy my piano books when I was a little girl - and where I would order the piano books for my students when I first started teaching. It's closed now. *sigh* . . . I miss that store:

Very cool, Rhonda! I love seeing pictures of the same thing taken many years apart. And that's an interesting history of the Arrowhead.

Great pics, Lisa! I especially like the church. Did you take that photo? It's very striking.

Oh, I didn't see your photos when I posted, Rhonda! I must've been writing while you posted. Those are wonderful pictures! I've never seen The Arrowhead before!

Thank you, Rob! That's one of my favorite shots...It reminds me of an old soul weathering life's storms. It's just outside of town.

I'd never seen or heard of the Arrowhead either. Thanks for posting that, Rhonda.

That's really a beautiful picture, Lisa!

Here's a picture I took at our county fair in the summer of 1978. It was right at twilight.

This is my old high school. The city built a new one a few years ago and now uses the old one for offices.

Great pics everyone! Thumbsup
Rob, I love that fair pic!

How is this for Throwback... lol
My brother, my cousin and I all had Mrs. Mandeville as our 2nd grade teacher.


Here is my brother (2nd row, third from the left, red shirt). Behind is the building where we would get our deeeelicious food, specially Tuesdays and Fridays. Tuesdays we got hamburgers, tater tots, apple sauce and chocolate milk - good stuff... and Fridays we got Pizza grinsmiley


The picture below is a recent pic from Google which shows where that picture above was taken. It also shows the 1st and 2nd grade classes, Mrs. Mandeville's class was the building at the far right.


Here is my cousin (pink shirt) in her class


Here I am in her class.... I look funny lol
Across the Universe - first English book I read in English


What is really cool though is that we are in touch with 2 of the teachers from Yorkdale. Mrs. Mandeville (now Gittings) and Mrs. Cariffe (now Smith) through the Yorkdale Elementary School Page in Facebook! Thumbsup

Here are two posts from them:





There I mention that I remember a cup. You see, Mrs. Cariffe loved drinking water and she would send us students to go outside (we had a water fountain right outside the class) to fill her cup with water. It was a huge cup and she put ice on it afterwards... so Claudia said she remembered her huge cup of water filled to the brim with ice. Laughing

The pic below shows you exactly where that water fountain was. Do you see a small white bar towards the back, near the bathroom door? Well, our class was right across that... now you can imagine me as a 10 year old... filling her cup with water in that spot lol

Those local Facebook pages are great. That photo I posted is from my town's page.



And when it was posted there, a woman said that those three girls at lower left are her and two of her friends, walking to another friend's house just around the corner, as they did nearly every day after school. I love how that random moment was captured purely by accident!

A pic for Throwback Thursday! grinsmiley

Here I am with my family (Mom, cousin, grandma, cousin and brother) at Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico.



One of the attractions there was La Bufadora.
La Bufadora is a marine geyser or blowhole located on the Punta Banda Peninsula in Baja California, Mexico. The spout of sea water is the result of air, trapped in a sea cave, exploding upwards. Air is forced into the cave by wave action and is released when the water recedes. This interaction not only creates the spout, but a thunderous noise as well. The phenomena repeats every minute or so with its volume depending on the strength of the waves. La Bufadora is the one of the largest blowholes in North America, often shooting upwards more than 100 ft above sea level. The exhibit hall roof top is approximately 24 metres (80 ft) above sea level and the blowhole frequently sprays above it.

Here is a sample video Thumbsup

What a splendid idea!

Here is a photo of my Grandparent's 60th Wedding Anniversary celebration back in 2006.
Left to right are: Dad, me, Momma, a close friend of the family, My Grandmother, my Aunt, & my Grandfather. (My cousin Abby was in the photo but her attire left a lot more to be desired...like more attire! Haha! I just cropped her out.)

If that big white building on the left wasn't there, it would look a lot like my town.
