I have been trawling through old photos of late for the pending big day in my eldest sons life, turning 21. Apart from the day he was born what else is there? Plenty I suspect but I came across some of my old photos.
This would have been in the late 60's, more than likely heading off to church, as that is what you did on a Sunday back then. All of us girls wearing dresses made by mum. That to was what you did back then, made your children's clothes. My beef with homemade dresses was that I had to wear my two older sisters frocks after mine no longer fitted, I had plenty believe me.
Sitting on the hand rail off the deck at our beach house with Dad and Grandpa watching over us, not OSH or any health and safety officer. We were allowed to take risks like this. Risk?? We were a generation that was allowed to take risks daily and we survived!! No cotton wool for us. I think we had the freedom years for sure.
Check out our toweling ponchos!! Home made with matching beach bags if my memory serves me correctly. Oh and look at the sun glasses on my mum, we back then thought they were hideous, what did we know. Grandma was rocking the wide brimmed sun hat and dad was very cool.
I have books full of memories/photos, and all my dads slides which are even older. Somewhere in my unspare room I have a gadget to plug into my laptop that allows me to make the slides into photos. Maybe I should dive into that room tomorrow.
