Way Back When-sday

Oh, you knew this would be featuring my Mom, didn’t you?

 Mousey put together about 5 photo boards to take up to the funeral home last week. One entire board was old pictures. She had quite a few friends there that would have remembered her like this. Some of the men told me that she had been a” real looker”.

I quite agree.

This was one of Mousey’s favorites, I’m not sure why. I think she looks like she is waiting. She was wearing pearls and a dress, so she was obviously going somewhere.

This is one of my favorites. It is SO her. I don’t know whose basement or hammock it was. Even though she was dressed down, she still had her lipstick on. Always a glamor girl.

    those old guys knew what they were talkin’ bout– she was a looker
    I agree with Mousey-what a classic photo– that picture screams classic nostalgia
    keeping you in our prayers

    Holy Jackie O, Batman! I thought of you several times last week when I heard “She touched my knee and blamed it on James” A strange prayer prompt, but it worked every time!

    Mousey’s favortite pic totally reminds me of Jackie Kennedy! Of course your mom was a looker! After seeing those photos, I am not surprised to hear that she was a model for Hudson’s.

    OK. Go to Wikipedia and tell me that Ruth did not look like Carmen Miranda. I always thought she had her eyes. This pictures proves it! It only lacks the fruit.
