Yellowstone 1953 | 1953 Travel Attire

Yellowstone 1953 | 1953 Travel Attire  Travel attire has really changed since 1953.  Obviously, jeans and tennis shoes were not in style then.  Of course, not everyone traveled so formally.  Still, can you imagine traveling cross-country from the midwest to Yellowstone and beyond, dressed in a shirt, tie, and dress pants or a long skirt and dress blouse?  To learn more about Yellowstone in 1953, see Yellowstone 1953 | a 7 Image Story.

Private Luau

Private Luau

Private Luau  Ever had a private Luau?  Me neither.  Still, my son won a Luau from a chance ticket for a his favorite charity.  So, we celebrated a couple of family birthdays by having a Luau.  The Luau was held on his back deck; he has a big deck.  Between twenty and  thirty family and friends came to his house today to party.  Quite an event; a beautiful day with nice sea breezes.  Aloha.

Uncle Jack

Uncle Jack

Meet Uncle Jack.  Just after midnight on 6 Jun 44, he parachuted into Normandy the night before the D-Day invasion as part of the 101st Airborne Division.   He was the only one of his squad of 15 men to live through the war.  Although he was badly wounded in the Battle of Bastogne, he came home, married my aunt, had two children, and lived a long life.  Uncle Jack passed a couple of years ago at the age of 95.  He was always an active person and swam several times a week until the last couple of years.
