Favorite Photos for Fun Monday
I don't have a favorite photo. But Faye, acting on her duty as Fun Monday Host, asked that we share our favorite old family photo. So here I am and this is the one I have chosen.
The one above is a favorite family photo from when I was a little girl. Favored because my mom, dad, and all my brothers and sisters were together for the pose.
In the upper left is my sister Nelda who died from leukemia in 1994. She was always beautiful. The two oldest brothers, Ron and Tom, are wearing identical suits. No. They are not twins. Interestingly, they appear much the same today. They look pretty fantastic in their suits at the ages of 74 and 75.
My sister Sandra is wearing a dress that I loved. She is also wearing a Lauren Bacall expression. Today, Sandra is my favorite breast cancer survivor! And, she still has that Bacall attitude!
On the lower left, Mike has a mischievous grin on his face and I suspect he is poking Trish in the back of her best blue dress. He would do the same thing today if you stood in front of him in a photo. Trish is the one who has the grace and forgiveness to stand in front of him and believe that he won't do it again.
On the opposite side you can see Nick is wearing a silly bow tie and a more solemn expression. If he'd have poked me in the back I would have turned around and decked him. Don't let that peculiarly shy act in that dainty little pink dress with lace trim fool you.
My mother was wearing a familiar style of dress. All the years that she and dad were married, mom wore polka dots because dad was fond of them.
And Dad? He was just worried about getting back to milk the cow.
I'd love to see your old black and whites. Post them and check in at Summit Musings.
