I asked my parents to take a peek last week - knowing that I can always count on my Mom for some glowing praise to boost the spirits. And then just last night I sent my siblings a "Happy Independence Day!" email, with a plea to visit my blog and leave a comment - so that I'll look like I'm more popular than I am!
I expect that I might get a visit from a sib or two today. So...Kathy, Mary, Joe, Linda, Becki, Jenny and Chris - here's a bit of patriotic family nostalgia just for you:
I recall that I was the instigator behind all the red, white and blue clothing. Most of the family rolled their eyes at my request, but went along with it anyway. But my Dad stubbornly dressed in brown & yellow polyester.
My sister Kathy (the oldest) is missing from this photo because she was taking the picture. If I am remembering correctly, she was wearing the ultimate in 70's coolness - an all-white jumpsuit. Wish I had a photo of that jumpsuit that I could share with you - I'm sure it would bring a smile.
A big Happy Fourth of July to all of you! I hope you enjoy some fireworks tonight with those you love...
