Wistful Wednesday : 1953

In June of 1953 I was 21 months old.  That was 58 years ago.

Connie and Anna June 06 1953

I am not sure what my Aunt Anna and I are exchanging.  Aunt Anna is my Dad’s youngest sister, she lives nearby and I see her quite often.  She always has a big smile and a hug as a greeting. Aunt Anna and my Dad are the only surviving siblings from their large family of 14 children.

This photograph was taken by my Mom on the farm right in front of the Lilac bushes.  The Lilacs were a shady place to play and to leave your wagon, and a spot for the dogs to dig a hole to escape the summer heat:)

  2. Such a wonderful picture. I wonder if you two are admiring a leaf, or perhaps a catepillar? :)

  3. Aw, it's a great picture, whatever you were looking at. You were what is called a "towhead," Connie.

  4. How wonderful to have photos of your life when you were so young. My folks weren't much on taking pictures, and since I was number 3, there were even fewer of me - I guess mom was pretty busy then!

  5. That was inspiring! to be an Auntie Anna always with a big smile and hug and to have places in the yard for wagons to park and dogs to dig holes.

    But to be one of only two of fourteen, wow, time, life, always slips on by doesn't it.

  8. Look at your blonde hair. It's a very sweet photo and what makes it all the more special is that you still have her close.

  10. Nice photo. It could be framed and hung in an important place. Isn't it nice that we have those photos to tell such stories.
