Some favorite vintage photos

We have a pretty large collection of vintage photos... 'cause, well, we're old. There's Jack's mom and dad's family, my family and all the early photos of ourselves in the mix. Here are a few of my favorites, each priceless in their own way.

My Grandpa Harry... of German descent, a cheerful fun-loving guy who loved beer!

My Great Grandpa Lewellyn, German also, who loved cats and beer.

Jack's Aunts Bernice and Margarite in stylish 1920s bathing suits... heartbreakers in their day.

Me, 1966 junior prom with my date who had just gotten his driver's license that day. I made this dress... white dotted swiss with pale blue velvet ribbon around the empire waist and sleeves. Loved that dress, nice do too.

Jack's mother c. 1930... fabulous haircut.

Jack with a buddy in 1958 at Trader Vic's, San Francisco... quite a night for two boys from Nebraska... aka, the good old days.


  1. I love your photos--especially the swimsuit one! I don't think we have any from the family that are this neat!

  2. Lovely photos! Everyone has fabulous hair, but especially you!
