The Daily Prompt: Snapshot Stories — Open the first photo album you can find — real or virtual, your call — and stop at the first picture of yourself you see there. Tell us the story of that photo.
Okay, you asked for it. Well, maybe you didn’t really ask for it. But I’m going to give it to you. First album, first photo of me that I find. I must admit I ran across quite a few early photos. But what can I say about this one? Really, all I can tell you about this photo is that it is of me. I can’t tell you how old I was (guessing somewhere around two maybe?). We were in Columbus, Ohio but I’m not sure if we were living at the Jefferson Hotel (father was manager) at the time of this picture. As you can see, I don’t know anything about photo restoration and this one is in very poor condition.
I grew up loving mysteries, and like many young girls during the 1950s and 1960s, I voraciously read (and vicariously lived) as Nancy Drew. When I was older, I worked with the police department from 1974-75 as a patrol officer. But reality set in and I realized I didn’t want to be the one GOING TO a shooting in progress. So my working life was spent working with attorneys safely tucked behind a typewriter/computer. But I never lost my love of a good mystery and I still love good old target shooting! And I must say, I’m pretty good at it even if I do say so myself!
Look at you cowgirl. How cute is that?
Guess ya never quite outgrow some things! 😀
We do go to the range to shoot. I only get markmanship all the time. Can’t get that sharpshooter nor expert level. What’s your level, Cowgirl? 🙂 The old picture looks better that way, Linda.
Would you believe, nobody has ever told me what level I’m shooting! I’ll have to ask somebody next time! Can you tell from the target I posted? 😉
Expert, DUH! 😀
BWAAHAHAHHAA! 😛 Really?
Great shooting there Linda and I agree. As long as the shooting can be done by us, I wouldn’t mind but don’t want anyone shooting back. LOL! What a cute photo of you as a little cowgirl. Lovely post. 😀
Luckily I never had to even pull my weapon. Thanks, Sonel, for your visit and comment! Many hugs to you, dear lady! ❤
You are very welcome Linda and thanks for the hugs. Many hugs to you as well hon. ❤

Thanks for your visit and comment! I’m glad you enjoyed it! 🙂
I’d better get the heck out of Dodge – and I mean right now, Partner.
LOL! 😆 No need to head out just yet. There are those select ones that can hang out in Dodge! 😉
Wünsche dir einen schönen Montag und eine gute neue Woche.Liebe Grüße Gislinde
Thank you for visit, Gislinde! Happy Monday! 🙂
Aw, thanks, Cybele! 🙂
Why, thank you, m’dear! 😉
weren’t you the cutest Cowgirl and a look a like to Shirley Temple too! I just started target shooting last year, since our move to the USA. To my surprise I am quite good at it, and our instructor advised my husband to keep me on his side;0) ( no worries there anyway) And I agree, I like it too because I am sure nobody shoots back;0) Great post!!!
HaHa, Johanna. Funny you should say that. When I was a little older my Mom loved putting my hair into ringlets. Gosh, I wonder where she got that idea!! That’s funny, cause that’s pretty much what the guy at the range told my hubby, too! (No worries here either!) Too bad we don’t live closer, that would be a fun outing! 😀
What a cutie…
