A Childhood Memory...

As I am preparing for a time of making memeories with my grandchildren, I thought of this old photograph.   My brother, Lonnie, is inside the car, and Nita, Deanie and me in front. Now Lonnie has always been LONNIE and I have always been LINDA! Nita and Deanie were known back then by their REAL names....all our names started with L. We were visiting our 'Granny'. Now I do not have all that many warm fuzzy memories of my grandmother. Actually, none that I can clearly remember.Which is what makes me all the more determined to be a real grandmother to my own grandchildren.

This pic is the four of us and Mother.....taken a LONG long time ago at my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary.
PS... Thanks, Deanie, for sending me these pics yet AGAIN!

What a great picture to have, Linda. I just know you are the best Granny :) I was lucky to have the kind of Granny that I am sure you are. I think of her everyday and miss her everyday.

I remember that day...this was at Shirley's house
and the shoes I had on believe it or not I think were new & Shirley had her floors so highly WAXED
I slipped and landed so hard right on my bottom!
I still remember doing my best not to cry. I also
hated that head band. Ha Ha thanks for the memory.

We WERE cute, weren't we? Wonder how old we were?

The first photo reminds me of one that I have of my sister and me posing next to my Grandpa's big old Lincoln - I loved that the back doors opened backwards. Weren't the fifties and sixties funny times for photos?
