And at age 45. I think her hairstyle made her look older here. I remember the lacquer she used to get her hair to stand up and wave like that. It might as well have been glue - that's what it felt like. I remember that suit; she also had a hat made to match it.
I have posted photos of my birth mother on my blog, but I don't have time to search for them now. I really look a lot like she did in her 60's and 70's, but my younger daughter is her spitting image when she was 17, the year I was born.
