Almost Wordless Wednesday

What is the deal with me and writing? Why do I always use the Wordless Wednesday cop-out? It must be that I don't like to write. Or maybe I just have so much to say that I usually just can't seem to organize my thoughts into one coherent post. Is it really necessary to write lengthy posts anyway? Some of my favorite blogs keep the posts simple, kind of like this:

Almost Wordless Wednesday

Looks like Wednesday nights are turning in to my "blogging" night, and how convenient that I can just upload a few pictures and call it Wordless Wednesday. Of course, if you know me then you would know that there is no such thing as "wordless", so I add a few words and call it "Almost Wordless Wednesday." Tonight I decided to post some of the pictures that I scanned from grandpa's house. They've been on my computer for about 6 months and I still haven't done anything with them, so I wanted to get them on here. They're a little out of order but I don't have all the time in the world to figure out the efficient way to use Blogger, so this will have to do. If you click on the individual picture it will take you to a screen where it will (hopefully) be a little bigger. I have a few more still on iPhoto waiting to be cropped, so stay tuned for part two!
