Wistful Wednesday: 1954
Cousins photo op in 1954. That would be me on the left. My cousins Geraldine and Hilda are in the matching dresses, and their brother Danny in the front with the doll. I think this was probably taken at my Aunt and Uncles home, I just do not recognize this floor or those cupboards. We must have been visiting! Since my Mother and Father came from very large families we went visiting all the time especially in the winter and we had visitors at our home often. It is what we did to make the long winter evenings more enjoyable. Hilda and I were born in the same year, she was born in the spring and I was born in the fall. She may look innocent in this photo..but she and I used to fight..I was a biter..and I think she was too. Imagine two little girls biting each other and screaming. I can't remember biting Danny or Geraldine..just Hilda.
Yesterday was a cousins get together, we met for lunch. It was a good turn out, and we had a good visit. Geraldine stopped by and picked me up for lunch. Hilda and her Mom joined us as did Chuckie, Evelyn, Kathy, Diana, Aunt Anna and Wilma. It is good to get together. We met at one of those health food restaurants..so I had a sandwich with lots of good stuff on it..sprouts and lettuce and tomato..and my very favorite pie..Sour Cream and Raisin..a real calorie laden piece of pie. None of my cousins share my appreciation for it. I did learn that my Paternal Grandmother loved it and often baked it for her family. I should have taken a photo of it..simply described it was like heaven on a fork:)
