    Here's a fuuny one. It's my dad with an "unknown" female. Ahemmm . . . I suspect this was taken when he and his pals, who worked on the Leatherneck Magazine during WW II, in DC, went out on a spree. Using their press IDs, they would tell the night clubs they were doing a pictorial that would be printed in the magazine. Yeah right. Free drinks, the works. Who this young lady is, we'll never know. But they look like they're having fun. (OK, my dad looks totally dorky here, but what the hey.)


    I like it! Nice to remember our parents were humans, just like the rest of us. Also reminds us, The Greatest Generation were not a bunch of Supermen, Just regular Joe's in extraordinary times!

    Here's one more from the pile. I think it's Christmas 1955. That's me at the right and my brother onthe left, and my paternal grandmother handing us something. Note the way little lads dressed in 1955 when visiting their grandparents' home for Christmas.

    Dec 25, 1955 fell on a Sunday - you'd probably just come from church.

    My great uncle Briscoe C. Brown (on right) and a group of his friends on a "motor trip." This photo was taken between 1928 and 1930. I always liked this old photo for the expressions on the faces, as well as the great hats and clothing.

    I'll try not to go crazy -- but I just got a few boxes of REALLY old family photos to scan in. A few of them are even tin-types! (Don't worry, though, I won't be showing you the really ancient stuff back into the 1800s!)

    So allow me to show you a few that I particularly think suitable here.

    This is my Great Aunt Edith at her high school graduation in 1908:


    My dad (in uniform) and his older brother Mark in 1943:


    Mom 'n' Dad sometime in the mid 40s:


    Mom, Dad, and Uncle Mark at the Central L&M -- the family lumber business -- in the mid 40s:


    Mom 'n' Dad in the winter, sometime in the late 40s. Mom was from Miami, and snow was not really her thing. I *love* that hat.


    Mom-- I *love* these pants.


    And I have to throw this one in 'cause I love the car. I'm pretty sure it's a 1946-47 Olds Custom Cruiser 98.

    That's enough for now, I think.

    Thank you for posting those photos, Effingham. Your parents were such a handsome couple. I fell in love with the dress your mom wears in the first two photos.
    The pants are gorgeous too, of course.

    Thank you. People used to say my dad was Franklin's answer to Clark Gable, and mom was a model before they got married.

    Me? Meh.
