Ruby Tuesday - Kids will be kids...





Ruby Tuesday and reminiscing - how can I resist?


The place is the festival of lights in Hartford, the year I believe to be 1967 around Christmas. This old scan shows all seven kids posing nicely for the photographer, which I believe to be Grandpa. The styles suggest that era, the major color is several shades of ruby...


The oldest is 13, the youngest 3. This print was in an envelope in the garage that Cameron found in November. The memories reawaken. See rubies all around at Mary’s fun meme!

That is fantastic! I love the look of this and of course, I remember that year! I had a blue parka with little white skiis and ski poles printed on it! :-)

Stay warm!

Is that you in the back row, or are you the little guy in the front? I swear I had a coat just like the little girl in the lower right (I was 7 in 1967... )

This reawakens my memories of the way I dressed in the 70's!
Everyone is stylishly dressed and some in lovely ruby plaid.
