aunt 1 was a spunk

I love old photos, the ones my aunt has around her house and the ones mom has in boxes. Though I’ve already collected mom’s and scanned them.

Since I’m in my aunt’s house so much I thought I’d share a couple of great photos she has framed. This one is of her and her father in the early 60s, most likely taken in Athens.

Aunt 1 looks really snooty in this photo. I think she was like that… Kind of all propriety and stiff upper lip with a touch of holier than thou. She’d fallen in love in her teens with a young man on Paros and for whatever reason that didn’t pan out. After that no one else was good enough for her till she was married at age 36 through match making. I think by then she realised she would be an old maid (in fact she was already considered an old maid) so she married the first semi decent man they brought her.

I’m tossing in this photo of the oldest brother in the family (Uncle 1) cause he was gorgeous. Generally that family was very good looking. Pity I took from dad’s side… they also have great genes, being a healthy family who live long lives.

This is one of my favourite photos of Aunt 1… on the beach in her ‘bikini’. Gotta love the bloomers!!! And what about those glasses. She sure was a trendsetter!

I’m passing the time best I can. Took Lainee for a long walk up to the hill behind us and wore the poor little girlie out and now I’m watching my aunt do her little exercise walking to the living room and back before I put her to bed again.

Then I’m going upstairs and to get out my watercolours!!!
