A friend of mine started "Friday Photo Flashback" because of having so many pictures from her PRE-digital camera days. She 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!  I personally think it's a great idea, and sounds like fun!  I totally love old pictures.  Hey I use to have a camera like that.

Remember this lady?  This is my wonderful Aunt Mitzi!  The woman is a Saint!  I love her dearly.  Right now though she's in Maryland in a therapy hospital due to a fall, and she fractured her hip.  Your prayers for her would be appreciated.  As she told me she's not ready to throw in the towel!  Gotta love that woman, and I really do!  She's like a second Mom to me.

But back to our Photo Flashback, above you see is her Wedding Photo when she married my Uncle Jimmy, my mother's brother.  The lady sitting down on the right is my Mom, and to her left is my dad.  I believe this was 1947 or 1948.  Below that picture is my Mother's whole family.  Starting from the left back roll is Grandpa Tom, Uncle Jim, and my Uncle Frank.  The Right to left is my Grandma Nelly, Aunt Nina, Aunt Tillie, and my Mom (Carmelina), and the child is my Aunt Joann.   Have a wonderful weekend!
