My uncles Hugh andLouis spent a lot of time in Idlewild and had a regular crew of friends that went with them. Sort of a male thing, although a couple of wives went too. It looks like Louis’ white shoe on the left side. Of course the rest of the family also spent time up there during the summer but they would go up and go skiing in the winter. Everything but hunting, I guess. I’ve read your posts on Idlewild. Great picture. I think it’s my favorite photograph of Hugh. That blanket is great. It looks like your Uncle was really enjoying himself. Another great photo! Nice picture–What a nice, cozy-looking blanket! I love Hugh’s blanket. When I was growing up, my parents used to rent a cabin for a couple of weeks at a time in Idlewild. Do you remember where the cabin was? I do not remember. I do know however the gentleman that owned the cabin name was George and he lives out in Campo, CA. I love the blanket! And of course I noticed the bottles too! Not the best fashion for a hot summer evening but maybe a cool autumn night? It might even have been a cool summer night. Sometimes it was cool all summer. Could definitely have been fall. I remember light snow in late September. Such a great photo. I love those evenings when you’re all sitting outside, it’s freezing, but you’re all having such a good time, no-one wants to go home so the host has to go and get everyone jumpers/blankets 🙂 In those days we would have all been staying in those two cottages so easy to go and get your jacket or a blanket. Hugh looks very happy there. I msut admit it was the blanket design that first caught my eye and I was wondering what the link was with the photo prompt – until I noticed the bottles close at hand! A great fun photograph to match this week’s theme. Wonderful photograph your Uncle Hugh looks very cosy in that blanket. Wonderful photo – gorgeous blanket. Nice! My favourite picture of Hugh! 🙂 I think you shared it with me! Uncle Hugh looks very comfortable there, enjoying a convivial evening out in the fresh air. Did you ever find the blanket? I imagine it is quite valuable today. I didn’t. I think I gave one from Louis to my oldest daughter and she has no memory of it! Wine, labels — you’ve got it! I’m with all the others, though — that blanket is just gorgeous; it steals the whole show, no question. And what a smile your Uncle Hugh has! As soon as I saw that blanket I thought “Whoa! I want that!” It reminds me of an old blanket I kept in the trunk of my car during college. It was there in case of when I drove to the Sierra’s to go skiing and had a breakdown my nice warm Indian blanket would help get me through the cold. And then my mother saw it, forgot she’d given it to me, and wanted it back. That’s the last I ever saw of it. Perhaps it’s in blanket heaven with your uncle’s gorgeous blanket. Comments are closed.
