This Photo…could be at least – 140 years old…so and if… I did not get to post this PHOTO – – NOW – – just got to thinking …that it – – just after more time… pass on to the WORLD of no return – – well… and then… you just would miss out … not ever getting to see this “prize” photo … of one of the little “BRADY” boys!
In the “Thomas F. Brady” family…my MOTHER was the thirteenth child and the “lucky last one” to survive for some seventy years. The brothers were the first to be born – then one girl came along… our Aunt IRENE BRADY- RILEY… and then another boy PHILL – – then the last… my MOTHER.
The reason for the order of births – – is that the “BRADY BOYS” married and moved out of the FAMILY HOME – so… some things that were left behind after their leaving HOME… were saved by the parents and as my MOTHER grew older – – some of the left behind items were boxed up and saved even longer – – and no one seem to want them – but they continued to be saved.
So…after all of the saving of stuff… “memorabilia” – – I did come along… and did look through a lot of these saved items – especially…when we were moving. At different times… I did ask my MOTHER about all these PHOTOS and as to “who” they were and what they did…and how they were all related – – and never wrote any of this important information down. Just thought that I would be able to remember… every thing… forever???
No one …has a perfect memory – – as we are all making NEW memories as TIME fly’s by – and all the old stuff …about the old people …that we never ever did get to meet – they all pass away so nicely – and no one KNOWS … and – – who cares??? I do care… and often wish that “IF” my MOTHER would have married sooner – – I would have been here – and maybe would have been able to meet all of the BRADY FAMILY.
But…that is LIFE… we get here…when it is so ordained and not before – – so I am making the best of this “old PHOTOS” situation – and what I can remember – – well… that is all that I can pass on – just in case… there are some others – – who might think that they are related – – as there were lots and lots of cousins and married related people that – – due to the distance in years – – in some members of the FAMILY – -starting their FAMILY too late to find all those other ancestors – that are OUT there…but who can find them???

“Mickey Mouse” -“will you hold still and pose for the camera?”
You can see that this is a very old photo – 1930’s – from the “Thomas F. Brady” family – North Saint Louis, Missouri – the back of the photo has the name of the dog – “MICKEY MOUSE” – and this “MICKEY MOUSE” has a mind of his own – and that looks like – – “I do not have to do what you are telling me to do – – especially without a treat!”
Looks like “MICKEY MOUSE” is also saying, – – “With out some “meat” as a treat for me – during these “hard times” – I do not perform – – for that silly person with the camera!”
“By the way – – – WHERE’s the BEEF???”
