School Days

I took this photo from my family album
and decided to do a pastel portrait of
myself as a child.  I was in Elementary
School ...maybe 7 or 8 years old.   I
remember how I loved this dress.  I'm
pretty sure that this was close to the
original color since this was a black and
white photo.  I've been feeling a bit
nostalgic lately and seem to pick photos
from the "Good ole Days".  I remember
those days with a smile on my face !!!

Navy Man

This is my brother-in-law, Joe, at
the age of 21 when he was in the Navy.
After leaving the Navy he became a
Policeman...then he worked as a uniformed
secret service officer in the White House
during the Kennedy Administration. How
proud am I ?! The original reference
picture was in black and white so I colorized
it a bit!. He still looks as handsome as he did when
he took this photo.
