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!

JULY 1967

Here is my dad with his prized possession (1967 red Firebird) in front of my grandparents home in Norfolk, Virginia. Him and my mom were still newlyweds at the time, and my sister was only six months old.

One thing about my dad is that he LOVED his fast hot rods! He always got compliments on his cars, and was always racing other guys/men! I know where I get my good driving skills from..lol. He was very meticulous/ about his vehicles, and as crazy as this sounds, when we were older, he didn't want us to roll down the windows in the back because DUST WOULD GET IN THE CAR!!

Lookin' good!! I love old pictures like that because you can just see how proud he is of his "wheels". GREAT flashback! And I'm laughing at your Outback post - picturing the people around you as you're taking pictures of all the food. My family is FINALLY used to it, thank goodness. :D Have a good weekend, girl ~ ♥
