Monday Moment

 My Aunt Jane, Nana, Mom, and Uncle Lee
L to R - Mom, Uncle Lee, Aunt Jane
 My father - dapper dude back in the day. No doubt he was driving a car with huge fins
My mom - what can I say - no wonder she hooked my father

So, I've been digging in the the archives - not a lot of history pictures, but this is fun for a Monday moment.    What's funny is my dad has shrunk and lost hair, but his face has not changed. He truly looks sorta the same at 86 and still attempts dapper. Fashion pride - it does kill him to not wear fitted slacks and decent shoes these days.

Let's all start the week with some pride - accessorize in some way...or slap on some decent shoes!

  2. Wonderful family photos. I think it is not only fun, but also important to take a look back at our history to see where we've been and how far we've come. I enjoyed seeing these.

  7. As I said, I love old photos - nostalgia fix. Your parents look amazing - your mother especially - so achingly beautiful!

    Clothing fashions have changed, and I know it's more practical and all that - but dresses have a grace that can't be matched by anything else.

    Hope you're having a great week.

    1. thanks. It's funny. As my mom, she wore slacks and tops all the time. Rarely dressing up by the time she had kids. My grandmothers always wore dresses - house dress and church dress.

  8. Great family photos! It's kinda cool that you think of your dad as riding a spiffy car with big fins, but I wonder what he really drove at that time. He only looks to be about 16 in that picture, and there weren't a lot of big-finned cars around in '48.
