Oh, I loved seeing these old pictures...I am one of those people who could sit with someone and look at old photo albums for hours and love every moment! :)

Good Afternoon Denise,
I have been offline for a couple of days and am trying to catch up with everyone this afternoon. I do hope to be able to do a post in the morning tho. I loved the pictures of you and your Family that you shared with us. "THANK YOU" for sharing such memories with us. I do think you favor your Grandmother. I loved the picture of them on the 4-wheeler. Now that my friend is what you call a "PRICELESS" picture. We didn't get anything Severe here where I live, but it was close by tho. "PRAISE GOD" for watching over and protecting us. I had very curly hair when I was a little girl. You would have thought I had a perm, but I didn't. I still have natural curyly hair and people are always asking me about my perm. LOL. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

What awesome pictures! I love the one of your grandmother on the tractor! Soooo cute! She's my hero! I will pray for your son, God hears your cries.

Where is your other son, I see on the side that you said you miss him.

I have four sons and worry about them all the time, but I know they are in God's hands.

Hugs, Sharon

Sharon said...

Wow three Sharon's in comments. I never knew my name was that popular.
Because you know it is MY name.
I wonder if there Moms got their names off maternity wear? HMMMMM

I love the picture on the 4 wheeler. Paw Paw is 92 and he still enjoys that and getting on his tractor. He does not see real well so you have to let him loose where he won't hurt anything.:)
And I love the last picture of you.
What style! Love the neck chocker. Reminded me of a story we used to tell at sleep overs.:)
And the brown paneling.
The last house I moved into still had those. We replaced those with sheet rock and the burnt orange cabinets with some white paint.
Thanks for the peek into your past.

Michelle said...

Denise, please drop me an email with your address, I would love to send you some Bisto! It would be a shame to cook an English meal without it!!!

Sandra said...

These are great. I've always loved that one of grandma Potts on the three wheeler. She was so crazy! :)

Sandra said...

In going through all of the pictures do you think you could scan the photos of Brandy and me when we were babies in the pink dress with the wagons? Charity might have been in some of them too. I can't remember. I don't have any copies of those. I think Dad does, but getting him to scan them will be impossible.

Sandra said...

Aunt D,

The photos were in an album in Grandma and Grandpa's room when they still lived in Roff. That's all I remember. Grandma showed them to me when I visited once and said they were moms and she wasn't sure how they had ended up at their house. I forgot to take them with me that day.
