Long Ago and Far Away


My dad with two kids I don't know. I think this photo was taken in the 20's, judging from the clothing and the rear of the car.

Mom and my grandmom on the farm. Neither of them were dressed for riding, so maybe he was their favorite horse. I can't imagine why they'd be in the pasture dressed like that. This was in the 20's also.

This is me (age 5) in the snow. I looked at the photo today and tried to feel the cold. Lord knows we could use some it it here.....LOL. I don't know where I was when this was taken either, but I do remember that hat. It was knitted and had a ruff of multi-colored wool around my face. I loved it!

I LOVE the old photos. And you are so cute at five!

I hope your heat breaks soon. As hot as it is in Florida, it doesn't go much above 93 or 94.

I'm such a fan of old photos. Those first two pictures look so idyllic, even though I realize life was not ideal nor easy in those days. I'm fascinated by the clothes, architecture, cars, hairstyles, etc.

You look so adorable and so happy.
That hat was so cute!!

I love these photos, esp. the one of you! No wonder you grew into such a beauty- you were cute, cute, cute! I had a hat like that- one with rabbit fur and a rabbit fur muff, too. Not very PC today but I sure did love it then.

It's Hydrangea heaven around here.

You look so happy! Isn't 5 a wonderful age? I do remember being 5, going to kindergaarten and making snow angels. Love your hat. The things that stand out in our memories. Keep cool.
