Family, Flashback Friday

Flashback Friday — Happy birthday, Mom!

In honor of my mother, Ginger’s, birthday, we’re flashing back today to, well … the exact date isn’t important.

Mom 6

Isn’t it a fun picture?

She may weigh in with a different view. I know, for example, that that snazzy bow has a less-than-thrilling back story.

I don’t know what the occasion for this photo was, but as with so many of the old pictures we have, I love all the little details: the skirt pleats, buttons on the jacket, one sleeve of her blouse peeking below the jacket sleeve, the expression that says, “I wish I was anywhere but here”!

Join me in wishing her a fabulous day today.

Happy birthday, Mom!

  2. Disheveled, discombobulated, misaligned, mismatched and unhinged. And old. Very, VERY OLD! But other than that I’m doing just fine!

  3. Thanks! And all these years later I’m still disheveled! And I still have the knobby knees….only now they’re full of arthritis! (Sigh)
