Flashback Friday

On several of the Australian blogs I read they have this Flashback Friday post. I really enjoy looking at pictures of times gone by and thought I would share a few of my own. I'm still working out the kinks of blogging and scanning and so on. Hopefully, the quality of the pictures will get better! As you can see, my mom's taste in children's clothing is questionable. I guess it was the style at the time! My brother, James and I did just about everything together as small children. We shared the same friends and often shared a room in small military housing. We were inseparable until I was about 12 and it was just not cool to hang with your little brother anymore. We went our separate ways through the teenage years. After I was married, James would come over and hang out with us. Until he died 4 years ago, we spent a lot of time together. He had a fabulous sense of humor and was great with children. He was extremely athletic and hiked the 2500 miles of the Appalachian Trail twice. We planned to do some hiking together and unfortunately that was not to be. My husband and I hike very short trails. My plan is to get physically fit enough to hike some of Mt. Ranier. This was one of my brother's goals. I would park and hike part of it! I'm not too good at staying in the woods for more than a day. Hotels are more my style. These lovely photos were taken circa (love that word) 1965ish!

Great pictures. I can't help but observe that you and Hunter have the same face and hair! Aren't memories great? Makes me want to go through some old pictures for a stroll down memory lane.
