Two of The Sisterhood

Lee Ann and Judy, c. 1965

July, 1964.

On the left is my mother, on the right is her sister, Judith ("Judi"). I found this photo in my household archives (ha) and it just stunned me for a few moments for a number of reasons, but let's keep this light. I think the white spot is from where tape got on it...I had never seen this particular picture; it was in my mother's things.

I think this photo tells us three major things that are worth knowing and remembering.

1. My mother had some totally groovy tops.

2. My Aunt Judi was prepared for a solar flare from 1963-1965 because she wore those sunglasses on her head for the entirety of those two years, I swear she did. I thought it was the ultimate in glamor but I could barely talk yet.

3. Sisterhood is eternal. And this photo is proof.

Small town gauche

If I had the option of either living in a town with this monstrosity or blowing my brains out, duh, I'd obviously live there.

But it might get on my nerves now and again.

Or not! We can't know!

Brand yourself!

Create your own business card, letterhead, greeting cards, stamps....you design your materials right on the site and simply right click and save to desktop.

You can also order these items from the company for that professional look. There are hundreds of designs from animals and people to places and activities. The retro and Melinda Moore Collections are fabulous.

Here's my card, I'm not 100% pleased with it but I'll get back to editing it after I finish writing this blog post.
