My three daughters - Denise, Sue and Melissa in front. Long time ago, don't know the year.


I'm enjoying looking at all these flashback pictures, it's fun to see how we and our families looked. Usually I can remember the day mine were taken and I'll bet you remember that of yours too.

Gloria, I so love this photo. Thank you for sharing it and the lovely story, too.
About babies being lost. So many and young folk, too. I can't imagine.

Mama's birthday is on Sunday, so here is one from her memorial with a few photos, from when she had church directory ones made.

This is me, about 81 years ago - holding onto my nephew John, who is only two years younger than me! He's my oldest sister's son and brother to my niece Mame who takes me out all the time! And yes Mary, we had wheels way back then, LOL.



Mary, same thing happened to my Mom, she gave birth to 9 children but two died when just babies - a boy and a girl. Good thing that things changed as years went by, we hardly hear of people losing babies now.

Great pictures everyone, I just don't have much to show anymore. Bernice had the above photo, framed it and gave it to me recently, Bless her heart!

Here I am when I started SP. I have really gone in the wrong direction. emoticon
Yes, I have had life throw me some sad things, so I won't beat myself up.
I did really well, until Kenny died. I can't even describe how that changed me.

It is the hardest thing I have ever had to go through and I am trying to get back in gear, but the waves are relentless.
I wont give up, however.

Oh, this is in Richmond on the James River.

Mary, I don't know about rude but it was a bit thoughtless of them to leave me alone, managing the restaurant and being the only one there to take orders, cook/make them, take them to customers - - I was waitress & cook and it kept me hopping. Also, this was my sister Dorothy & her husband Grant and their son was about 2 years old and they left him with me to mind too! The kitchen was huge, we had a table & chairs back there plus a cot. My wee nephew would sleep on that cot while his parents were out and I was so busy!! He was a little angel, thank goodness!
On the other hand, my sister really needed an evening away from everything, she was the one who thought up all the food, cooked it, cleaned up, etc. Of course I did a lot too but she was the main one. Her husband mainly enjoyed sitting at the table in that big kitchen, reading the papers and pretending he didn't notice how busy we were! LOL He liked owning the restaurant but not doing the work!!

Sorry ladies, this picture brought back all these memories, mostly wonderful ones, I loved being with my sister Dorothy every day, she was only 12 years older than me but she "mothered" me!

Me as a teenager, not married yet, when I worked in my sister & brother-in-law's restaurant. Our Brantford newspaper came to take pictures & do an article. My sister & brother-in-law were out & it was just me taking care of the restaurant business and when they came home & found out, my brother-in-law was so angry to have missed having HIS picture & story in the paper instead of mine, LOL. I don't think he ever got over it, some people are like that.

Mary, their restaurant, this one in picture was in Drumbo and I lived with them above the restaurant until they got their own home. Loved working there but oh my, did not like being left alone Friday night while they went to a movie in Woodstock and I was so busy with Friday night teenagers coming in for hamburgs, milkshakes, etc., after being at a dance! Seemed that all I did was work! You'd know where Drumbo & Woodstock are, Mary.

This is my sister with her beautiful long hair.
By the time I came around my mother was sick of dealing with it and I was destined to have hideous pixie cuts until I rebelled as a teenager.

The woman in the photo is Tante Anna , a family friend that was like a grandmother to me.

We all looked the same back in the day--- least I think we did.
If you take a look at some of the old pictures with wall paper and furniture in them, no matter
where we lived, we had the same LOOK--- I find it so fascinating

Father would not allow the picture to be taken in church and in the afternoon. Mass in the morning then we came back for the Scalper service in the afternoon .
We had to bring our dress and veil to be approved by the nuns !

Here is my first communion class. I met my dear friend Eileen here and we are still good friends.
A very serious group.

Mama was not happy that Father Hughes had us all wear sack robes that covered my pretty dress.

I am second row from the front, second from the left.
