514 Snapshot

Rosie & Adam circa 1986

This image has been on my About page for years. Before that, as evidenced by the crinkly, thumbtack-bestabbed border of the photograph, it was on my bulletin board for years. It was taken at my first home, 514 Franklin Street, in Connersville, Indiana.

There’s a special place in my heart for this photo, despite the completely incorrect white-balance. Rosie, my beagle, was my boon companion for 10 years. I still remember the moment this was taken, the concrete on this side porch was always cold and slightly damp, I could feel it through my sock-feet, and the sandstony grit under my hands. I’ve got my arm locked around Rosie so she would be forced to look at the camera for the photo.

There were always slugs on the sidewalk.

  1. Hi! My name is Melissa and I am the current owner of the house! My husband found this while trying to find pics of this house from long ago. We love this house very much! I would love if you had anymore, so that we could see what it looked like when you were here or even if you have pics from years prior to living here.Please write back!


  2. Hi Melissa. I know my mom has a ton of photos from the early 80s in that house. I’ll send her your email address so she can get in contact with you. She still lives in Connersville.
