Time Warp Tuesday


So This is my Mom and Dad. They aren't holding me - or any of my siblings- but my cousin. My mother had such killer legs! This is fairly soon after they were married. They did not marry young. My father had a birthday, got a PHD and got married all in the same week. They had me, the last of their kids, when my mother was 40, so my siblings are all older than I am by a good many years. Still, we had a good time growing up, and having slightly older parents meant that I had a little different perspective of things. Like hearing about the Great Depression, World War 2, etc. from my Parents, not my Grandparents. My father passed away about 3 months after I was married. My mother died in 2011.  I love this picture because they look so YOUNG!!! 
Thank you to Jenn at Juggling Life for inspiring me this morning!

Thanks for joining in! This does make me want to find pictures of my mom in her younger days. (She was tall but she did not have legs like those in your picture -- WOW!!)

Karen, the funny thing was that she was anything BUT tall! Only about 5 ft 2!

What a great photo. I love old B& W photos. They look young and happy.

Those are some great legs!
I think the people who wait to marry are often the most content in their decision.
