A Walk Down Memory Lane

Category: My life a few years ago | Posted: Sat Sep 16, 2006 6:17 am

This was so funny I couldn't resist.
This picture brought back many many memories.
The older male in this picture was one of the sweetest men I ever knew.He spoiled me terribly.
bad.He was my mothers dad we called Papa.Mother said he was a really a rough dad but you couldn't tell it when his grandchildren came along.He wouldn't let us run in the house he was strict on that for sure.
I remember his walking cane catching us around our foot and boy did we come the a halt :)
I am the smallest one in the picture and jubabes
dad is to the right just behind me.I loved Papa so much and miss him still.
I had to laugh at my suspenders holding my pants up . :)
The automobile behind us kind of dates me just a tad lol I just thought the automobile might interest someone on here.
Frank I hope this pic isn't to large I haven't got the resizing down yet.

( Edit by Frank - Full size photo here: )

The photograph is just the right size Glenda. Who are the rest of the people in the picture? I love seeing old photographs. You are sooo cute!! It's nice to take a walk down memory every now and again isn't it? They certainly made cars to last in those days didn't they? I remember a car my dad had and it seems to keep going forever and hardly ever needed anything doing to it.

What a great photo Glenda! I love viewing these glimpses into the past full of memories. I have added a link to the full size image in your blog entry in case anyone wants to see it full size.

The size is fine for now Glenda, just have a read of the photo resizing tutorial here:
and ask us if you need help. I think Jubabes has the resizing thing down too so perhaps you could ask her as well?

This blog entry reminds me: I have a ton of old photos at home in Ireland which would be great to upload. I will scan them into the computer when I go home at Xmas

I remember those cars as well....I guess that dates me as well.

That's a great picture Glenda. I love old pictures as well -- and yes I remember those cars, so guess I'm dated too!

Thanks everyone .I could sit for hours looking at old pictures .I do get sad sometimes but life goes onThanks Frank I will get jubabe to help when see isn't so busy.
Eileen from left to right in the my cousin we call Brother(James),another cousin Geneva,another Robert and Brothers sis Nadine.Robert and Nadine of couse Papa have gone on to a far better place .Looks like a bunch of us are dated :)
If you notice there is no grass in the pic.The women in the household kept the grass dug up because they had no lawn mowers. In the spring ever sprig of grass was plucked and flowers planted.That was lots of hard work.It is all sandy soil also.Tracked in on feet of kids had to be bad.

I love to look at the old photos of our family!! It's funny to see you and Daddy as kids!! Papa passed away long before I was born so unfortunately I never got to know him! With that many cars and trunks in the front it had to have been a holiday!! I wonder what holiday? Since some of ya'll are wearing jackets and long sleeves it must have been cool. Maybe Easter?


glendann wrote on Wed Sep 20, 2006 6:34 pm:

Jubabe,It probably was Thanksgiving.We all got together on almost all holidays.The family usually swarmed to Uncle Walters and Papa's home on any can of holiday.Back then it wouldn't have been Christmas because it would have been cold enough for coats instead of sleeves.It was lots colder then than now in Dec.Jan.March and also really cool in April.Global warming has changed everything.
