Summer 1960

LilSis, Mom, & YoursTruly

This photo was taken about 1960 or perhaps 1961.  It’s hard to know if LilSis is 1 1/2 or 2 1/2 years.  And am I 3 1/2 or 4 1/2?  I can’t say for sure so to be on the safe side, I shaved a year off.  It’s just what girls do – take off a year here or there. 

Anyway.  This was taken at Irma Jaques’s house across the road from us.  You will recognize the house from some earlier posts.  This was before Irma renovated the house and added amenities and had the house re-veneered with brick.  Adorable little cottage both before and after. 

LilSis cracked on my earlier post about the shortness of my skirt.  What’s that, Becky?  Are you wearing a diaper?

    Due to the size of the picture and my 51-year-old eyes, I THINK I can spot something white about thigh level. (Hey, but my arm is raised, so that makes it look shorter, Ruthie!) Guess Ev the bombshell and some of her wardrobe choices just rubbed off on us, huh? I think I look too tall to be 1 1/2, so I vote for 1961.

      You can hover your cursor over the picture. When the “hand” appears, left click, and you will go to a new screen with the enlarged picture. Diaper.
