The Jyri Scarf by Berrocco- Norah Gaughan
This summer we were camping in Grand Junction with Anner, Jimmy and kids, and Nancy Koepsel. We were up for the weekend biking at Kokopelli bike trails, just west of Grand Junction. While we were there, we were looking at this catalog that sold very very expensive clothes but they were really beautiful. On the front page of the catalog was a lady modeling a sweater, leggings, and a very nice cashmere scarf. I said to Nancy, "What is about this picture that looks weird" She said that "there is no snow". Yes, it was one of those models you see holding a pair of skis and you know for sure by looking at the ski equipment and the model, that they have never skied in their lives. For some reason, I am attracted to the old photos taken of people with skis, even if they don't know how to ski. I love all the vintage photos from the old days. I have a whole bunch of them and will get them organized and share them someday. If anyone has any old photos to share, please do so. I love looking at them and reading about where it was taken.
This photo was taken by Jason. I was modeling a scarf that I made for my friend Marilyn. Thank God there was some snow in the photo! Tess
