“June 17th, 2018 Father’s Day”

You can tell  – – just by looking at this old PHOTO  — that this is when the world was in “better times” – – when you take the time to think about the past – – and do a little comparing – – how and what we were doing  – – way back in the 1930’s – – what do you think??

“DADDY and ME!”


Looking at me – – – in the strong arms of  my “DADDY” – – I am sitting on top of the world!  Being the first child in the FAMILY – -I am taken everywhere – -I am getting to meet all of the FAMILY  and FRIENDS – and from what my MOTHER told me – everyone liked me and wanted me to visit them – evidently – – the one thing that which –  I do  even  NOW – – I was doing then – – and that  was  asking questions – – asking  “WHY”  was the one word – that I used more than any other…  just wanted to know  WHY  everything was the way it was?

One story that – – my MOTHER told me  – – was  that  when  she had the refrigerator  door open – she was  getting something  out  –  – and walked  away just long enough – – and I was just the right size to stand there – – looking in at all of the food – – – and what a “mystery” to me – – was  the wire basket full of “FRESH EGGS?”  – – I had round balls – – that were small – -about the size of those eggs – – and must have been trying to make a connection – – as to “WHY” my toys would be in there??

So…  before she knew what I was up to doing – – I had taken hold of one egg – – and threw it down on the floor – – – and just looking at the broken egg on the floor – – and not   able to figure out why…   this ball  did not   bonce    up and back to me – – the mess – – just did not look right – – so I am guessing to see what was wrong – – I grabbed another egg – – and threw it…  also down to the floor! As my MOTHER turned around – and saw the mess – – I started to cry – – as   there was something happening here – – and I did not know about eggs – – and that these were not balls for me to play with.

I am guessing that after – – someone would be telling me more – – about what I could touch and what to keep my little nosy hands off – – before there was too much damage done!

This…   “PHOTO” of me and  DADDY is one of my   favorites – – you can see that I have my shoes and socks on – – and I always knew – -I was then ready to go somewhere – – and as you can see my “HAND”  is busy pointing to where we should be going – – and it sure was good to be up so high – – so as to see and be able to be  the “director” of where we were going and what we would be doing!

“It sure does pay… to be  DADDY’s”  little girl!”  It was always FUN… to get to travel in style – – being carried in the arms of   “DADDY
