Wednesday, August 6, 2014

Blogger is giving me trouble this morning, so if I even get this posted, it will surprise me.


Only a couple of things today >>>

Today, August 6, 2014 would have been my mother's 99th birthday! It feels odd to think of her that old, especially since she died relatively young. She was only 74 years old when she died.

My dad's birthday is also this month, on August 11th. He would have been 90. Yes, he was nine years younger than she was, and he died at age 78.


Mother, dad, Mike, and me.
Approx. 1958
Notice the Mother-Daughter dresses
my mother made!
 
 
 


The other thing I wanted to mention >>>

I've been replying to your comments and realized I haven't been doing a very good job at it! I'm still on Tea Cup Tuesday, from July 22nd, which I began this morning and that's when Blogger started s-l-o-w-i-n-g d-o-w-n. I'll keep getting caught up as soon as I can....and begin visiting your blogs and leaving comments for YOU! I apologize for being so s-l-o-w myself!


Okay, I'm now going to attempt to post this...for the fourth time! Acckkkkk!!!!




Oh My Gosh!! It worked!! Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!

  4. Guess I missed the Blogger slow-down while I took my kid to the dentist. I'm more of a night owl anyway. Seems to be working now.

    1. You're lucky you were at the dentist!! Even being THE patient there would've been better than dealing with Blogger!! LOL

  5. Love the picture, so cute!

    I agree, when Blogger acts up it is incredibly annoying. Luckily, (at least for me) it doesn't act up too often.

    1. Thanks, McGuffy Ann! I loved them, too. Too bad nobody does that anymore....at least not that I've seen.

    1. Hi Sue! Thank you. What lovely things to say! And yes, I have memories of those years....but they're both wonderful and sad, due to my parents divorce later on.....

  9. I love old family photos, timeless in black & white. I'd sure like to know the story about that 9 yr age difference because that would be unusual back in the day. thanks.

    1. Hi Marsha! Thanks so much for stopping and commenting! I love old photos, too. And this particular one is one of the rare few color photos from that era. I added the movie film look to it online. As far as the nine year age difference.....I don't know if it had anything to do with my parents' divorce later on, but I have many speculations.

  10. I like the mom daughter dresses, and my mom sewed some mom daughter matching outfits too. They were so pretty.

I love comments, especially because I know the time it takes to stop and type one, even a short one! Thanks very much!
