Since I retired I keep forgetting what day it is. I invited my kids to meet us at Cracker Barrel last night for dinner only to find out it was Wednesday! I wanted the “Turkey” dinner that is a Thursday special. I was rather disappointed. Yet, each week holds a Thursday so I will go another time.
Here is a “Thursday” throw back photo for you. Bob and I got married on a Thursday (March 13, 1969). He was in the Air Force. I was 18 and he was 20. Boy was that a long time ago! Would love to be THAT THIN again. lol
Here is another one of the same day with my daddy. I remember he told me; “Now sis, when we go through that door, you can either turn right and go out the front door and I will take care of everything here. Or you can turn left and get married. The decision is up to you.” I miss him so much, he was my dad, counselor, friend and the most wonderful man I have ever known. I love this photo of us.
This is a photo of me at our second apartment with our 1969 “bug”. As you can notice Bob “flared” the back finders and put larger tires on the rear. After that other people started doing it also. I loved that bug. I drove it all the way to California from Kansas by myself – not knowing it would not heat up I did not use the A/C in the desert. It was one long hot ride. lol
Jeremy and Jennifer on trip to Disneyland CA
This is a photo of our twins, about 8 years old when we took them to Disneyland in California. They picked out the clothes they wanted to wear. I never dressed my twins alike accept for photos. I knew they were individuals and did not want to dress them alike. Besides the fact they were boy and girl they were mirror twins. Jennifer is right handed and Jeremy is left handed. If she was cold he was hot. They look alike but are totally opposite of each other. They are now 36 and have always been best friends.
This is a photo of my sister, Caroline. She was 3 years older than I am. We were never best friends like my kids were. Yet, I miss her everyday. She left us in 2010, seven months before my dad passed.
This is my graduation dinner photo. My date was Claude. I have no idea where he is now. I did not get to go to my high school prom but our church had a Senior Graduation Dinner for us. Love my BIG hair and gloves! Yeah 1968!
This was our 1965 Mustang Fastback. Sure which I had that car now. This photo was taken in California at my husbands parents house (Garden Grove, CA) in 1969. On the way there we stayed in AZ over night and watched the first man set foot on the moon. Will never forget that.
Bob and I with my Great Grandma Ghan and nephew Jimmie
Last one – this was before we had the twins. Bob, my Grandma Ghan, myself and my nephew Jimmie. Grandma had come to visit my mom and we took this photo in the back yard.
Hope you enjoyed the trip down memory lane with me!
