Fashion Friday (A Little Early)

Today there are several lovely models and outfits to admire. Nan, my stylish mom, is on the right end of this group of nice looking young people out for a day of an unknown activity. Nan's date has a piece of paper in his hand that could be a program of some sort - maybe a concert in Glen Oak Park? I think his plaid cap is so cool, don't you? The girls all look stunning in their pretty outfits and wonderful hats while the fellows tend to be wearing very similar suits except for the fellow who has made his stand out with the plaid cap. Another observation - there are three fellows and four girls so don't know which ones are couples and never will, sigh. A light bulb just went on over my head!! There probably is one more fella - who would be taking the picture? DUH! Another senior moment!! One more comment, the two little gals on the left must be very, very short. Nan was not tall - probably 5' 3" - but she looks tall in the photo. When I was looking closely at this picture, I spotted something around Nan's neck - and it dawned on me that it was her watch! I have that watch and above is a scan of it. Inside the case is engraved "Nan Pearce" so there is not doubt at all. On the outside of the case is an NP which I'm not sure will show up when enlarged. I have so grown to appreciate all the old pictures as I have grown older. Hope you enjoy them, also. (Click to enlarge)

What fun - and how nice you have the watch! My Dad recently gave me a similar one I'll have to show you but all he told me was that it belonged to a great Aunt in Scotland....J

Girls, I too or my youngest son Garner Preston has an old family watch. When my mother in law passed away 2 years ago this August, we found an old watch and inside was the name Preston. The family believes that it was Leif's moms grandfathers watch. They all decided that Gar should be given it, due to the fact that he is named Preston from Leif's moms maiden name. Actually Gar's first name also comes from my dad's mothers maiden name. He was really given the family history of names wasn't he. Oh well, thought that might interest you both.
