* NOSTALGIC SUNDAY *

It's Time for Another Nostalgic Sunday
 

~~~
 
This will be a short and sweet Nostalgic Sunday, since it's very close to being Monday!
 
 
 
This picture is one of my favorites, partly because it's probably the only one I have of just my brother Mike, and me, and our dad. But also because we were so happy then. It was Christmas Day approximately 1960. Looks like we were getting ready to go to Mass, or just got home. I vividly remember my outfit, I guess because I loved it so much! It was a gray jumper with a pink blouse. To this day, I still love pink and gray together. Mike is holding his new Chess For Beginners game, and I'm holding my much loved Colorforms! And what is our dad doing? Reading the newspaper, not paying a bit of attention. SO TYPICAL! And he's wearing what I affectionately refer to as his "Barney Fife suit!"....I wonder what's the deal with he and Mike wearing white socks with their suits??
 
Ahh, such a happy time in my life that ended way too soon......
 
 
Happy 2016 everyone! May this be a year of doors opening and blissful encounters for all!
