Southern Lady Vintage http://southernladyvintage.blogspot.com/2010/10/vintage-stereographic-photo-cards.html hosts Vintage Love Saturday each week and the theme this week is vintage photographs -- here's my pic:
Grandma Pearl Never Really Rode a Horse...
... But she's been married 60 years, had seven kids, loves 21 grandkids and 2 great-grandkids, taught me how to read, introduced me to Jesus when I was four-years-old, watched countless old movies with me and made the best sugar cookies in the world.
She's 81 years old. She's what she'd call an antique. She's my mom. I love this photo of her because although she's never actually sat on a real, live horse, she's looking quite the pro right here!
This picture was taken in the early 1950s. Ain't she cute?
Taken at a celebration of the birthday of her Indiana town, she was whooping it up with Lew, the love of her life, who always a clean-shaven swede, grew a red beard just for the midwest celebration.
Mom's having hip surgery in a couple of weeks, and my dear husband is taking a week off of work to handle all of my responsibilities so that I can help mom and dad. Can't wait to see them again (they live very far away....)
