“Almost an ANGEL…”

MOM 1920 002

We did try to  get  “Marie Brady” to show up – – on this photo – but at best …she does look like  an “ANGEL”  standing next to her  Mother…”Anne Elizabeth  Smart  Brady.”

“Flappers Days…High Fashion…”

Mom 1920's 001

“How do you like this photo?

This photo includes  my MOTHER – at least twenty years before I was ever a thought… but that is Marie Brady in the middle of the three girls … sitting on the top step. This photo is old… and I am Lucky to even have… photo restoring  – well – that is not something that I  am even  …  oh well …  just not good at trying to do. There would be a great possibility that only ashes would be left – when I got to where I would be expecting a miracle!

All the girls are very good looking…they are all dressed to go  somewhere.  And  – of course…I’m guessing …that back in the day … that this was taken – –  girls wore… black stockings.   “Do I sound like FORD – when he offered his cars in any color –  that you would like… as long as you ordered the vehicle in BLACK!”

Now… that I give another thought to the above photo… I see that my MOTHER is wearing “PEARLS” – a favorite of her’s – – and would you believe that I still have some  of her “PEARLS” – – they are good and last forever.

So… on second thought… since the girls are all dressed to the  10th degree… and they are all on the front steps to one of their homes … and my MOTHER is in the center of the group… looks like they are celebrating my Mother’s   BIRTHDAY on the 25th of SEPTEMBER!  When you are invited to a  “BIRTHDAY PARTY”  – you get dressed as nice as  you can… everyone who is invited are all friends… and each enjoys being with all the others… and at some  point in the festivities… just to remember this special occasion… there is a call for a “PHOTO” to be taken  –  – just so in another …hundred years from  “NOW” – – someone will resurrect the old  “PHOTO”  – – and show the whole wide world… just how lovely their MOTHER was on one her BIRTHDAYS… so very many years ago.

Marie Brady – 1918


Miss Marie Brady  – Today is her  114th –  Birthday!

This is stamped that if you want more copies of this “PHOTO”  – the charge is $1.00 or 6 copies for $5.00 –  Now you have an idea of how old the photo is.

I always,  liked this photo of my  Mother “Marie Brady McClarren”   – but she did not like it – why ??? –  she did not say   and I  could – never get a reason?

So, today in Heaven – I know that they are singing and dancing – dancing the “Charleston” – that was her favorite dance – the “Roaring Twenties” and the days of the “FLAPPERS” must have really  been fun for those who like to kick up their heels?

“Happy Birthday” …  to the  “BEST of  MOTHERS – – – and wishing lots and many more happy Birthdays in Heaven!
