The Mouse Bride

Posted by PicasaI call this the Mouse Bride and I think it is quite wonderfully weird! It is in the first lap of scanning a couple of boxes of family slides from the 1950s that have been in storage. Almost everybody is passing through rooms telling me that this search through the past isn't worth it. Still, I think this is a find. I had already left home, and my little sister is dressing for Halloween, I imagine. Isn't she sweet?

ADDENDUM: November 2015. I am reliably informed that Marjoty
was playing the lead as a Frog Princess. It still looks like a mouse costume to me.  jhh

By the time I got to Phoenix . . . .

my short visit was almosst over. Left to right, myself, my brother Dave, my cousin Susan. my cousin "little" Marita, my cousin's wife, Neva and my cousin Dwayne. Here we are (it is 110 degrees outside) eating delicious Chicago style pizza. Dave, Susan and I came to Phoenix to visit my Aunt Louise after she broke her hip. It was Susan's idea to celebrate her retirement after 22 years of teaching. We were housed and royally entertained by our Mesa cousins, some of whom I hadn't seen for 30-50 years! You should have seen Aunt Louise's face light up when we came into the room! We had a lovely visit and many memories were shared.
