“I am ancient!” was how the e-mail began.
This was from my friend Lynda in the UK. I had no idea what she was talking about… after all she is younger than I! And I don’t consider myself ancient quite yet.Evidently she found the following book in a bookstore and to her surprise found her own photo in the book!
Now what are the chances of that happening?
She added… “please note the wording and picture on the cover”. Yes, I suppose that picture would make you feel a bit ancient but I am sure she did not remember it looking that way!
“Front row, third from the left . . . is me just before my 6th birthday in 1952. I was very tall for my age and 5′ 2″ by the time I was nine years old.
I am still that height! and take the same size shoes as I did then – but am loads wider now :-)))
My open-toed sandals were, in fact, the previous years out grown shoes with the front part over the toes cut away. Even then my feet were quite big.”
I post this because I thought it was quite fun that she stumbled upon her photo in an old book and also because we never know where our photos may end up and how much they will mean to someone else in future years. Take good care of your photos and share them with those who would also enjoy them.
Thank you Lynda for sharing your find… and by the way, we like you just the way you are, crazy woman!
