Wistful Wednesday: 1964

This was taken in 1964, at the farm where I grew up. The only two brothers I have are also in this photo, my sister was not born yet. If you look closely our dog "Wally" a Spitz is laying in the snow between me and the car. I was thirteen in this photo..my brothers would have been four and ten. Those fabulous stretch pants must have been in style back then..and colored tennis shoes..a real fashion statement. I obviously had recently endured one of those home perms, a Lilt or a Toni..they were horrible stinky things..and just made my hair even more unmanageable.

 

Here is the same barn, forty five years later..on a nice day last June. The barn is showing it’s age..much like the children that posed in that farmyard so many years ago:)

    Nice way to show then and now. I remember those perms, I didn’t have one though, my hair was curly I kept it fairly short.

    Hi Farside — those look like the type of tennis shoes that might be really slippery on the snow. Do you remember if they were?

    Hi Ineeda, Yes I believe they were awfully slippery, I should have had on snow boots..:)

    Love the “58 Chevy! What color was it? Tourquiose or green? Love classics! Have a 66 Mustang #2 for me. One new in 1966. :)

    Jan, The car was two tone green..I was not sure what year it was ..I put little round marks in the seats using the cigarette lighter one day when I was bored in town. Oh I bet your Mustang is something else!!:)
