I retired in 2005 after dealing blackjack and roulette in Las Vegas casinos for almost 20 years. I have one daughter and one grand-daughter who introduced me to altered art after my retirement. I was born in Iowa and grew up on a farm. I began the Memoirs of a Wildrose blog in the form of letters to my daughter to share information with her about family heirlooms and family history, plus remembrances of today, yesterday and yesteryear ! "Book of Douglas" blog is the story of my late husband, his life as I knew him, and our journey through life together. Ginny's Art blog was created to provide myself a record of my artsy creations.

1957 High School Prom

A memory was jogged today when reading a forwarded email from Aunt Joan. That great "after-prom" dance that my then future in-laws chaperoned, also, had other future relatives in attendance. G'pa P.M.'s adopted sister, Evelyn, was married to a musician, Karl, who was a Des Moines high school music instructor and also had his own band. They performed different functions, and they were our dance band that night. Karl's sister, Wanda, was the singer and there you have it - a swinging band for a bunch of swinging teenagers !
