Friday Photo Flashback...

Friday Photo Flashback
Maybe it is because LoveAphid brought me quite a few pictures from my early childhood that I'd never seen or maybe it is just a terrific meme, but I've jumped onto Alicia's Friday Photo Flashback this week. What a terrific way to revisit your old photos (mine are from way before the digital age, that's for certain).


This is a picture of me taken in the First Class bar on the upper deck of a 747...every summer for a few years I headed to New York for a week or two to be with my birth father and his family. I think I was almost 8 in this picture.

Alicia said...

Wow!! What a great picture!! I love it!!! How fun to be able to ride First Class!!

Thank you so much for participating in the meme!!!!

Thanks. Isn't the airline bag too cute? I love the dress, too. (It's been long enough that those dresses are coming back in style!) I think my mom made my dress, but I'm not certain.

Laura Lou said...

Adorable. And, where can I get those Mary Janes?!

Alicia, I so didn't get to ride First Class. 38 years ago, when a child flew alone, the stewardesses were super nice. Every time I flew they introduced me to the pilots, took me up to the First Class bar, gave me little stewardess wings, and truly took care of me. It was NOT like it is now.

Laura Lou, I think those are coming back in, too!
