ABC Wednesday: Nostalgia


Magic-skin Baby,
most favorite toy during 
my early childhood

magazines of yore
read them, cut out photographs
taped them to my mirror

my brother & me
posing in Grandma’s backyard...
a sweet memory 

1950 was proclaimed as Indiana Territory Sesquicentennial Year 
by Governor Henry F. Schricker.
Below is my uncle Charles dressed
in appropriate garb for the celebration. 
Beards were a requirement or males
could be jailed in the "hoosegow"! (from Spanish "juzgado") 

Cousins Mary & Kathy

The older I get, the more nostalgia is important. - Margy

Norma Ruttan said...

yes, Roger, and the two blondes are Doris Day at the top, then Janet Leigh.

Norma Ruttan said...

thanks, Carol. I am still receiving a warning message from Webroot whenever I visit Carol's site. Does anyone else get one there?

Norma Ruttan said...

Me too! Partly, I think, because there are few around with whom to share the memories.

Nostalgia is more appreciated with these photos Norma! :-)
