Update about blog

Come on over to my other blog, Alchemy of Clay and Living in Black Mountain NC, where the scenery and my ceramic arts life are combined. I've moved some personal blog posts, (as well as those that are about my ancestors) back here.

Home-movies part 5

This is yours truly doing her gardening in the back yard in Dallas Texas, around 1944.  I'm thinking I was around 2 at the time.  My folks and grandparents all had Victory Gardens.

My dear grandmother knit that silly hat with the pom poms on it.  I look like some kind of child of a biological experiment.  I vaguely think it was red and white.  Oh lord, it may have even been blue as well, since this was Wartime.

Here my mother and I are waiting for a bus, in front of our house I think.  This was out in the suburbs for sure, but we had a fire hydrant as well as bus service, so it was part of the city.

When a teasing youngster joined in the photography, my mom gathered me in her arms.  The boy actually waved at my dad with the camera, who probably was on our front porch.

My brother just sent me some movies that were placed on CD for me to see. They are family farm movies from back in the 70's, not as old as yours. It is strange to see yourself as a young person now that I am way beyond that time period.
