Free Image Tuesday...Tintypes and a Toothless Sweetie...Oh and Tennis:)...

Here is Sweet James and his missing front teeth.  The right top and bottom tooth were knocked out when he fell a couple of weeks ago on the tile.  Talk about making a Momma's heart stop!  We were in the garage and we heard James start crying.  I ran inside and the first thing I saw was blood and 2 teeth just lying on the tile.  Thank goodness they were both baby teeth.  Last week he lost the left top tooth while eating ice cream.  I love to hear him talk right now.  Especially if what he is saying has lots of S's:)

Pretty Soon We Will Have to Feed Him A Liquid Diet:)

This first FIT is a full plate tintype.  It measures 9 by 7 inches and I believe that it is a copy of an earlier CDV photograph.  So kind of like one of the first forms of photocopying:)  I have several examples of this type of photo posted on my Flickr account.

This is an art piece I created using these Sweeties:)

This is Sweet Archie J. Pollock.  On the back of this CDV it is written that this photograph was taken on Aug. 4th, 1873 and that Archie was 4 years and 10 months old.  I really love his stockings and hat.  I am working on an art piece with him right now:)

The tennis lessons are going very well.  On Saturday the boys and I had a lesson together.  I could tell that they were proud of me for playing and David said several times how he could not believe how well I could hit the ball:)  It's fun and after an hour of chasing that ball you get your heartrate up pretty good.  Also on Saturday in the court beside us there were 4 men playing a game.  I wanted to run and hide.  I did not want to have the lesson in front of them, but I did and I'm glad.  I also told the tennis coach (a man) that I weigh 277 pounds and that I need to get fit and healthy.  My own husband doesn't know how much I weigh, but told that coach just as matter of fact as you please and...  the world still held on it's axis.  It's all ok.  I am starting to learn/trust that your attitude is so much more important than your size.
