This is my mom in 1946. She was 18.
She sent this picture to her long distance beau in Indiana.
No wonder my dad fell in love!
A few weeks later, he sent this picture to her. He was 24.
I've always loved these pictures. While on our trip, I made sure to make copies.
Her darling picture was taken one day during her lunch hour.
A photographer was offering free pictures, so she posed.
I can see it as one of Anne Taintor's cards.
Caption: ' Innocent or Ready to be Guilty, she could not decide.'
These days, my dad is 89 and quite ill.
I'm glad we went to see him and hoped we helped brighten his days.
And my mom, who is a very young 83.
Still just as adorable as that young girl looking over her shoulder.
While visiting, she gave me a few things.
A very unique salt & pepper shaker,
disguised as two sweet birds. A wedding gift in 1948.
A pully that I've been drooling over. Now I finally have my very own pully!
A Sierra Madre bobble that will be fab on a necklace. I must get busy.
A tiny aqua enamelware pitcher.
A tiny Chintz pitcher for Linda. (which my mom thought she'd like!)
So dreamy. Thank you mama, pat, kitten.
Make the years count!
