Who is Moggie Loggan?

The other evening I walked into the room we use as our office and face up, in the middle of the floor was this tiny photo—about an inch across. (I've enlarged it so you can see it better)

Where did the photo come from? I don't know, nor does Ray. On the back, written in red pencil are the words "Moggie Loggan"—her name, I suppose. A beautiful child, but unknown to me. I'd guess, from her attire, the photo may be from the 1920's. It reminds me, in its style, of photos of my mother taken about that time. Who is she? And how did her picture end up on our carpet in 2009?

I've had the little photo propped up against my pencil cup, where she watches me at my computer. Who are you? Where are you now, Moggie Loggan?


  1. Sounds like you have your own version of HGTV's If Walls Could Talk.
    Yours may be entitled If Floors Could Talk.
    How it got there thought sounds like quite a mystery.

  2. Terry,

    That is my mother. The tiny photo is the one I scanned to be on my blog This was posted just a few days before she died.

    She is four or five in that picture. Her younger sister called her "Moggi Logan."

  3. How this little picture ended up with you is a true mystery.

    Mom would have been completely amused.
