Mom and Dad

Check out this stylish couple.

Bonnie and Clyde?

Well, I know it's a photo of my mom and dad from somewhere back in the 20's.

But I thought it kind of resembled the infamous outlaws. SWMBO said "No, your dad with that jaunty hat, looks like FDR!" (SWMBO is older than me.) She added that if Dad ever heard that he would be enraged. He grew up in a Republican family and thought Roosevelt was the devil.

Strangely enough, I grew up in a Republican family, too, but Richard Nixon changed my attitudes for good.

I LOVE that photo. And look at the creases in those trousers! So sharp!
I also love your mother's grace, & her dress.

Unfortunately Mom died when I was but 13. And Dad is gone now, too. I think they both look so Twentys!

I thought the twenty's were pretty hot style wise. Lot's of new ground broken back then for women...then something weird happened in the 50's and they covered up all over again.
Thank GOD for the 60's...but I feel like we are going backwards again.

I think Richard Nixon changed a lot of our attitudes.

Still though, some of us might have thought it couldn't get any worse. George Bush proved us all wrong.

Good observation, Mike!
