Flashback Friday # 29 ~ Weddings
(Please do not include memories of your own wedding in this flashback.)The earliest family wedding that I attended was that of my niece, Barb. Unless it was as a child when I was too young to remember I never went to family weddings. I didn't go to relatives' funerals either.
I didn't watch Lady Di get married and I'm not watching tomorrows wedding. I wish them well.
Next January hubby and I are sailing to Hawaii from San Diego. I will return to the Eastern Caribbean on day though. I'll also go to St. John. :)
Have a terrific day. :)
My sister, Lois, might know better, but I am sure now that I am not in this picture. The man in the middle is my great-grandfather, "Uncle John" My grandfather, "Charlie", was not present for some reason.
The children being held are very likely my uncles. The young one on the left has been guessed as my own uncle Lester. If so, then the lady holding him is my own grandmother when she was young.
The man next to here looks a lot like I remember her father, my Grandfather Fletcher who came down from Main. His family (not an ancestor however, came over on the Mayflower (Moses Fletcher of England).
"Uncle John" could be holding my father.
Baby boys wore dresses back in those days. Did you notice?
I guess the first wedding I attended was when my oldest brother got married. I don't recall much about it though. My Dad put on a suit and tie for it. He said he felt like he was being hung, and he couldn't wait to get that tie off! LOL He always wore overalls.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Linda, if there ever was a "chick-Flashback Friday" this one was it!
BP, it was worth watching. I took a nap afterwards, from 12-1 PM.
Sandee, enjoy the Bay this weekend!
Rachel, I didn't have to put on a tie as the funeral was for a military buddy while I was in the Army. It was my first and I went to that one because of the military experience.
I didn't get up early to watch the wedding, but instead recorded it and watched later. I'm glad I took the time to watch, and I was able to fast forward through the slow moments.
Have a great weekend!
