Granny has fun

Yes, it has been an interesting day.
I went down to help my brother sort out a bit of his junk.
He has become a hoarder of note.
I found a big packet of old photographs.
Talk about a blast from the past.
Pictures of me as a baby.
As a teenager.
Let us not dwell on those.

A whole lot of my Dad when he was in the air force.
And, of my Dad holding me when I was a baby.
Photos I had never seen before.
I sent a whole lot to my younger daughter.
She kept saying “oh my God, that is me”
I have been telling her, for years, that she was my kid.
Finally, she believes me.



My Dad is the first one on the left.
Ok, ok, I promise I am not going to share all of them with you.
But, maybe just a few.
He was a good looking guy.

  1. Good looking lad, indeed! Do you take after him!? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Hi Simone.
      Well, we both liked crossword puzzles.
      And, we shared a sense of humour.

      • Thatโ€™s certainly some awesome things which youโ€™ve gotten from him ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘

  2. I’m glad you had an interesting and enjoyable day, Granny. It sounds very industrious. It’s lovely coming across old photographs – they bring back all sorts of memories. I found the same when I went through my Mum’s photos after selling the house. They were similar to the ones you’ve discovered, my sisters and I as babies with my parents, who were happy back then. Shame it didn’t last. Your dad was a good-looking man in his prime, I agree. I still haven’t sorted all of Mum’s photos out. They’ve got to be roughly divided into four for my three sisters and me, one of whom is in Australia. The postage won’t be cheap, but it’ll be an honour to be the one to have the pleasure of looking at them all first. P.S. I’m sure you were a beautiful baby and a lovely teenager. Xxx ๐Ÿ’ž

    • Thanks Ellie.
      Not so sure about the teenage years.
      I was chubby!

  3. Of all the guys, I thought: this one is a good looking chap. And it’s your dad! Glad it brighten up your day.

  4. What a wonderful discovery, it must have made your day ๐Ÿ˜Š

    • It really did.
      Had so much fun.

  5. So now we know where you get your good looks granny

    • You say the sweetest things.
      Now, how do you know what I look like?

  6. LOL at your daughter!
    Your Dad was good looking!
    I bet you were a cute baby. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I don’t remember.
      Lol.

      • ๐Ÿ˜„
