I'm trying to go through a box of my Aunt's stuff most everyday--it takes awhile because I stop & marvel at lots of things! Like this sign.....
And here is the flip side of it! Not sure how old it is, but would guess it's from the 50's or 60's--the airline doesn't exist anymore!

When we were on Isla in January, I saw that they had painted all the columns and walls in the zocalo with flowers, birds & other animals.
I never posted any photos because Wayne ( islagringo) had done an excellent post on his blog about it. I thought some of them were pretty.

These tomatoes are among the many that have started.Thought it was interesting how you can see the fuzz ( similar to peach fuzz? ) in these close ups!

I found this great photo when going through the stuff I got at my Aunt's. It's from 1960.Left to right: My sister, Judie (13 yrs. old), my Aunt Kay, me ( lovely in red & pink?! at 12), cousin Mary Jane, my Mom & brother Tom ( he's 5ish--not sure when during the year this was taken). Probably taken at holiday time--we are wearing sweaters & I don't think we saw Mary Jane all that often--she lived in Trenton, NJ and at that time that seemed pretty far away!

Last week I picked up lots of boxes at my brother's that I had packed up last month when we emptied my Aunt's apartment. Spent the morning today going through 2 of them. It took awhile because I had to stop & read cards or look at photos! It's amazing ( and wonderful for us) what she had kept. So I decided to start a treasured memory day once a week.
This is a photo taken around 1930: from the far right--my Mom, her mother, Hazel, holding my aunt Barbara
( she died at the age of 5), my Aunt Kay ( in the dark cloche) ; a few unnamed people and then my grandfather, Peter P. Carney. The back of the photo says" First delivery of milk by air--Pittsburgh Airport about 1930"

I was an interesting group of people, most of whom I had met on previous trips--or earlier in the week!
( thanks, Mark & Donna for coming over & introducing yourselves at Jax!)
And thanks for hosting a fun night!
