About Me

My photo
I'm a mother of four grandmother of seven and great grandmother of three. I live with my husband in the house that we built with the help of my brothers and will have been married for 57 years this February.

In my last post,  Maggie from JUST BETWEEN ME AND YOU  had left a comment and asked that I be her guest on her Blogazine. I was honored but felt that I just didn't had the time required to put it together. I kept starting to write but never finishing. So one day this week I was alone with nothing pressing to do and finally I wrote  my condensed life story the best I could and send it in to Maggie.

I had no recent photos of myself and no one around to take a photo of me.    It was intended to be inserted at the beginning of my story but it ended up at the end...  Not a great photo either.

Also, Maggie's High School Reunion got me to thinking how we were all slowly getting older one day at a time but not noticing the gradual change until we look at pictures of our youth.

I realized that I didn't even had any photos of my wedding in my house, only slides tucked away, way up on the top shelf in the closet. So I dug em up and used a digital converter I bought a couple of Christmas ago but never used.  The photos are better on the slides than the digital, and the  quality isn't great, so my apologies. 

Amazing  the transformation as we age.

This is a picture of me and George on February 26, 1966 taken at his parent's homestead on the farm. . Since the photographer couldn't make it to the wedding because of the bad snow storm, my youngest brother in law took the only few wedding pictures we have.  The slides have specks of dust on them. 

                           Me and my sister in-law. She was dress in in the new fashion of the day. Look at the            big blotch on my dress

In the back, on the left, my mom and dad, his mom and dad.  Can you tell,all I cared about was George.

Here is mom and dad and I'm still having eyes only for George. I thought that my mother looked a bit like Jacqueline Kennedy on this photo. 

The camera is clicking and I'm still looking at George. Be still my heart...

Brides- wanna- be are lining up by the stairs where I'm planning to throw this simple bouquet of red carnations.

Time to open my gifts, Do you remember those cool glasses. Meeow....

A candid shot taken when I was talking. 

I was dressed in fashion with this bouclee suit to go on my winter Honeymoon. 

This was in the main kitchen where the food had been prepared for the guests. This is the only picture I have of the the top of the cake. The cake was cut but  no pictures was taken of the cutting of the cake...  The lady in the foreground is George's aunt and his mom behind her.

                                   Here we are in Florida for our Honymoon 

                    This is where we stayed in the french section where lots of people from Quebec stayed. An apartment with fridge and stove where we could prepare our own food. Since our new car had a smashed grilled in an accident the day before the wedding,  my husband best friend, Franny, lend us his big  black car to drive all the way to Florida.  What a good friend.

Here is George with fresh picked coconuts that was given to us by men who were harvesting them. 

We never made it in the Marine Stadium for some reason. It was a very windy day at the beach and we got wind burn badly.

That's me under those sun glasses walking in the white sand.

Thanks for dropping by  and sharing some days gone by with me. I enjoy reading your comments.  Have a safe weekend everyone...  JB
