Memories of Long Ago

A walk down memory lane, of thiry years past, brings thoughts of the dating years and fun times with our families. My future mother-by-marriage was known as a very gracious hostess and enjoyed having dinners and parties on warm summer nights in the back yard on the covered patio. Good food, comfortable places to sit, lots of conversation, and a mix of interesting people always made these times enjoyable.


  1. I loved each and every picture. I had a good chuckle over the granny dresses. How we loved wearing them : )
    Melanie loved all your pictures as she has such a love for Japanese culture.
    I just loved what you have been sharing each day.

  2. Thank you, Patty. Yes, we did love our granny dresses! We even wore them to school!

    I'm glad Melanie enjoyed the pictures. This was a really fun dinner party. I forgot to mention the food, but it was authentic and delicious! Tempurah, sticky rice, seaweed, and more! Delicious!
