Skipping down Memory Lane

This is my parents on their wedding day.
Doesn't it look like he's about to cop a feel?

See the blue bowl? They still have that.
And the teapot and the crystal bowl and the candy dish.
My mom has passed on the Friar Tuck salt and pepper shakers to me.
I have a weakness for salt and pepper shakers.



This is me. Doing my Cindy Loo Hoo impression. Frani says I still have the same dull look, especially when I'm concentrating or intently listening to someone. Honestly, could I be any cuter?!



This picture was taken outside our house in Georgetown. I was about four there. This has always been one of my favourite pictures.

I used to think, "Wow Mom! You're such a hotty. Look at you with the flirty pose. And Dad. He looks like he's about to take a bite outta you!"

Then my mom set the record straight. It seems my dad was pulling up her dress to show some leg and she's trying to pull it back down!

Little horndog!!



This is me (in the middle) with Cousin Alex.
Pay no attention to the kid on the right that I cut off in the scan.
He's Alex's older brother.
He's a poo-head.
So we're just gonna cut him off.



And, of course, the quintessential white trash picture.
This is my kid brother.
Don't judge.
It was the 70s, we did that back then.

I'm pretty sure the bottle is empty.
Then again, we are French Canadian ... you never know!

As white trash from Mississippi, I remember sitting in my grandmothers lap sipping her Schlitz.

Those photos are great! I love the leg picture. She should quit using the excuse and own her inner pin up girl!

Cat: My parents tell me that the Priest came for a visit and fed me beer when I was 2! And, yet, we all turned out alright. Imagine that!

DGIT: Inner pin up girl! Ha!! I'm going to tell her that. Good one! And would you look at those torpedo boobs ... high and proud!

These are SOOO great. I love it. Friar Tuck Salt and pepper shakers? Really? how cool.
You are adorable...love the dark out of control hair...does it still stick up like that though? I could help ya' with it. :)
I have a picture of myself in my CRIB and my dad is pouring beer into my mouth.
And my drinking habit came from where????
I was a toddler with a beer belly. (just kidding)

Cute pics. My dad always let us sip from his Schlitz beers. Hee hee.

Busy Bee Suz: I LOVE those shakers! I'll take a pic and post them. Talk about serious bed head, right? I don't fight with my hair anymore. Whatever it wants to do, it can do. It seems to work out better that way. And the dark ... not so much anymore. My hairdresser is a goddess!

ETW: For me, it was Red Cap beer in the stubby bottles! To this day, I prefer beer over wine. Although I have developed a taste for martinis. Drinking problem? Not I!!
