Aunt Mary

I haven't been blogging much because I have been working hard on genealogy. I tend to get tunnel vision when I do family research. In sorting through boxes of stuff, I found these old photo (click on for larger view).

These photos are of my mom's sister Mary. The upper left photo is her with her parents a.k.a. my grandma & grandpa Barnes. The upper right one is with her husband Larry although they probably weren't married at the time. They recently celebrated their 50th anniversary.

The bottom left photo looks like Uncle Larry is putting a ring on her finger. Could it be an engagment photo? I'm thinking the one on the right is prom as there were many of her in the same dress and flower taken at different locations - no date int he photos though. Wonder what that means? Humm.......

I guess these photos will tell me if she checks my blog! LOL

Hi Vickie,

The photos were taken (three of them at my graduation in May of 1958 and the one with the prom dress was taken in April 1958.

Yes, the one was Larry putting an engagement ring on my finger and that was over 51 years ago.

Have a great day, honey.
See ya later...Aunt Mary

We ran an errand early this morning and saw this guy leaving the pond and making his way somewhere else. The Muscovy ducks, more about them ...
