Wistful Wednesday: Jan 14, 1961
This is a wedding photograph I uncovered this morning. It is one of my cousins..she was married on Jan. 14, 1961. Congratulations on 49 years of marriage Bob and Verniel!! I am sure Verniel is wondering how I happened to get this photo.
Yesterday the cousins got together, during the dark and cold of winter we meet at a restaurant for lunch at noon. My Aunt had two boxes of photos for me..that belonged to my Paternal Grandfather. My mission is to scan them and make CD's so that everyone can have a copy if they wish. The originals can then be distributed amongst the cousins. It is an amazing group of photographs..I will have to enlist the help of my Aunt and my Father to help identify some of the people. It is a good winter project. I will see that they are marked properly so that they are not lost forever.
As I was looking them over last night, I just skimmed the surface. I was almost in awe. What a bunch of stories there are in these boxes. I knew I wanted to feature one photograph today. I thought about it and couldn't decide between snow photos and skiing photographs. Snow was winning out..until this morning..I happened across this lovely wedding photo..that was dated Jan 14..close enough for me:)
