FRIDAY PHOTO FLASHBACK

I started "Friday Photo Flashback" because I have so many pictures from my PRE-digital camera days. I thought it would be fun to scan them and share them here with you. I'm having so much fun doing this, that I would love for you to join me, too! So dig out the photo albums and put your scanner to good use! Don't forget to sign in to MckLinky so we can all visit and comment on each others blogs!

Here's another one out of the ole' archives!

This is hubby (then boyfriend) and I, around 1994. We took a road trip with his mom and his sister to Oregon to visit some of their friends. I can't even recall where this pit stop was, but as you can see, bears are a big deal there!

I still remember how we (me, Gabe, & his mom's friend's son) walked around the neighborhood and people kept staring at Gabe & I. Let's just put it this way. I don't think they've seen people that looked like like us around there before...lol. I was thinking we were going to get jumped at any second! But, we were fine and nothing ever happened!

Maybe they just thought you were on your honeymoon! Of course, who honeymoons with their mom, lol!

Veronica Lee said...

Love that pic, Alicia.

Looks like I'm the first on Mr. Linky!! That's the advantage of staying in our part of the world; we're more than 12 hours ahead of the US.

I've always loved seeing those bear statues. They are so neat! I've been to Oregon once and loved every minute of it... totally beautiful country. It is always fun to revisit or photos! Linda

Hazel said...

Bigfoot and the look of the town sound charmingly rustic, my kind of place to visit.

Susie said...

You guys are way too cute where ever you are:-)

LivingforGod said...

Cool picture! That's funny (your experience in Oregon). Which part of Oregon did you visit? People around where I live are not like that :). Please come back to visit Oregon. We promise we won't stare at you :).

Beth in NC said...

That is too funny about people's reactions. I'm glad nobody "jumped" ya. :o)

Very cute picture. Sweet memories I'm sure (minus the racists). Ha.

Love!

thanks for sharing :)

Denise said...

LOVE the picture!! You are both so cute with the bears!

We went on a road trip to Oregon in 2002, it was beautiful, but I was a little creeped out by all the HUGE wooden bears everywhere.

The imPerfect Houswife said...

Look at the sign - those people have seen Bigfoot, for Pete's sake, why would they think you were strange looking!!??? I think you all are good-looking! Be honest, do you have a tail or something?? ☺ LOVE the picture ~ have a good weekend ♥

Kelli @ RTSM said...

Great pic! That looks like a really cool place!

jen@odbt said...

They had never seen such good looking people before! I know what you mean about being stared out.

Darcie said...

amanda said...

Laureen said...

Maybe because your such a good looking couple.

Alicia, The Snowflake said...

Take care my friend!

He & Me + 3 said...

Carin said...

Great picture, I sure love seeing all the flashbacks, great meme you started! I need to get mine up =P

mimi said...

Cute bear;) Cuter couple!!

Isn't it crazy when people stare? G and I get it every day(when we are out with our boys). It's interesting and strange :)

Eyeglasses & Endzones said...

Lions and Tigers and BEARS oh My!!!

That was funny about them not seeing people like you before...people are soo strange sometimes aren't they? Their loss...

Lisa said...

It was in the Redwoods somewhere going to Brookings, OR.
Do you remember the big Paul Bunyan statue ?

The imPerfect Houswife said...

I'm not sure how, but I think the links to #11 and #12 above are backwards. Or maybe it's just me, but who knows? ☺

Alicia W. said...

Because you two have it goin on that's why! LOL

Pam said...

My daughter and her friends get stared at too. Usually it's because they are acting like goofballs. lol
Glad no one got jumped!

Heidi said...

haha. Love the picture. Gotta take a picture with the big bears when you come across them!

blueviolet said...

It was because you were such a cute couple! That's all!

God, My Savior Forever! said...

I myself love photography because picutres capture a moment in time that you can always go back to and relieve! They stir so many emotions:D You two were and still are such a cute couple!!! My hubby and I only courted 5 months so our pictures are few but so special!

Erin said...

What?! They couldn't handle a cute couple? Seriously. No, I know...I visited Northern Idaho when I was 14 (in the 70s) and when the parents found out we were from Los Angeles, the kids weren't allowed to play with us anymore. I guess we had cooties!

You aren't in the PNW until you are standing next to a larger-than-life chainsaw carving, that's all I can say!

Hope said...

Ha! Ha! Great photo!

Jane In The Jungle said...

Awwww love the bears!

Tara said...

Well gosh, Alicia, y'all don't look like aliens or anything...lol.

Did you at least see a bear while there? That would have been my sign to head home!

Denise said...

I always enjoy your pictures.

Dani Joy said...

Oh girl, I totally forgot to post yesterday! that hasn´t happened to me since starting the FPF. I want to still post today, anyway. hope you don´t mind it´s a day late. ;)

What do you mean they weren´t use to seeing people like you? you mean ethnically? You look great to me! ;)

well, lets see what I can dig up for my flashback.

Big hugs

Kimberly said...

This totally looks like a scene in a horror movie I seen once. You know, innocent road trippers get carted off by half crazed mountain people? I'm so glad your trip ended up more pleasantly. ;)
