Rewind: February 5, 2012


Rewind: When Club Girls Go To a Wedding



Rewind: 1990 (which is 22 years ago now!) 2 cute catty animals at Cedar Point.
I always loved seeing the animals there, although retrospectively it seems a bit odd to have wild animals at an amusement park!

Under Our Willow Tree - Rewind!

Rewind! This is the front of our house in North York, Ontario. We had a banana-yellow garage door that I used to hit with tennis balls as I practised all summer. This is also what my friend Alix nicknamed "The Poltergeist Tree" which grew by the front door. Both Jamie and I used to live in the bedroom this tree was right outside of. It was the only time I was scared of a tree. Funny, now I remember it so fondly. Maybe it got a bad rap?

You two are super cool! I don't think I have seen that photograph before, love that about our blog.

My photo was taken with my first camera that I got for Christmas. I think I was 8! Not bad eh? My camera obsession started young.

Oh I remember those animals Shannon! That was the day I was shocked to discover that healthy wolves have never attacked a human being.

BTW, I am tracking down that old camera I had. I think it was a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye. Going to try and get confirmation from Mom.

Love the pic Shannon, that totally brought back memories, I remember the long fur on their ears. Was it really that long ago?! Good grief!

Oh, my goodness, I can't believe it's been that long since we used to go to Cedar Point! When I think of the animnals there I always remember that moment of eye contact between the little girl and the panther. Whoa.

Suzie, I love seeing pictures that you took with your very first camera - oh, my goodness, The Poltergeist Tree! I can almost hear it tapping on the window!

Wow, I'm trying to remember how long ago that pic of the club girls at the wedding was... it was... Cam's wedding? It's been a while that is for sure!

I love the poltergeist tree/bird feeder pic Suzie! I'm so impressed that was from where you were a kid.

I'm shocked about how long ago Cedar Point was, but if it makes you feel better I think that was the first year we went all together :)

Suzie Ridler said...

Oh Jamie! That tapping STILL scares me!

Shannon, so glad you liked one of my first photos. :) It's weird to see that tree. I think it was eventually taken down, wasn't it? In my head, it will always be there.

So that was our first Cedar Point trip? OK, that does make me feel better.
