Holding On ~ 1971

1971, as is now, this clan is a tight knit group. We are a larger family now, scattered across the southeast, but with hearts, souls & insights tethered close to home...you know, where the heart is...with one another.

Seems I've seen this somewhere before, when I was sorting out tree branches and wallowing in confusion. Something to do with butterflies, levis, peace symbols and all skinny, all beautiful. But I got it now. The Who's Who anyway, now on with the What's What. Love this picture.

LOL...you see Maryellen, you are good at puzzles. Not everyone is so blessed & apparently with all of our ramblings & such, we have confused many a soul.
I bumped this back to the top to clear things up for those that get confused in the world of who's who here. ;)

What a handsome bunch! You two look just as I imagined. Your mother is beautiful, she's the original toehead eh~ Why is it that people call it toehead? (platinum blonde)hmmm odd. Mom looks like a domestic goddess and dad a burly lumber jack. All american sweethearts...who is taking the picture?

singleton said...

I think Tilly took it! See the orb over over the FP next to Mom?

LB - this was our FAMILY PORTRAIT, our effort at getting all "dressed up" and sitting together at one time....just long enough for the flash to go off...note the bare feet, "i see your panties", "Why is Chanty boy wearing a seer-sucker sports jacket and where did he get if from anyway?, and see all the holly and Christmas decorations on the mantle? It's not Christmas time, once you put that out, it's permanent until you move! LOL!

PS...SLB i think you wore that same dress for about 4 years and me, I think I wore that dress, ummmm, once! Peace, love, and why would we have a couch facing away from the fireplace? In our world, I mean!

skinnylittleblonde said...

LOL...
Nana(the wisest toehead of all) took the pic, I do beleive. I have another pic of Kim showing her how to work a camera taken same day.
I think the couch was moved to make way for the tree...that room had two couches & they faced each other w/ the tree in the middle.
I think my dress is really a shirt & I'm not sure who's shoes I have on! And Chanty boys seersucker jacket...did it come off of Mom's ventriliquist(sp) howdy doody doll?
LOL ... Orbs... uh,oh...I feel a whole 'nother blog coming on!

orbs said...

kimbies said...

skinnylittleblonde said...

Kim~I do beleive you could be right! I really don't remember, I don't really remember photographers living out back! LOL :) I just know I have a pic of you showing Nana how to work a camera!

lotusblossoms51 said...

I thought Kim was your sister...she is the beautiful dark hair sister. You girls are really beautiful inside and out~ Can we see a update on the picture of you all today? At least the three girls. Within the last 3 years...? Arianna says kids still wear those shoes today. Everything comes and goes full circle or in a spiral...I have a thing for spirals and dots...just thinking out loud~ Wonder why some of the comments are deleted by the people for the people or something like that...Blogging is a trip! a mind trip... Thanks for the ride girls love this neverending journey~(*.*)

skinnylittleblonde said...

Thanks Lotus & you are correcto again! Kim is the dark-haired, dark-eyed beauty. I actually found a more recent pic of the 3 of us together today & may post in the future...there are glimpses of each of us on each of the blogs.
Kim is on Kimshandmedownlevis w/ a garden gnome, Singleton is dancing on Hippie Parade & I am Wishing Well.
LOL at 'for the people by the people.' Words can be erased, if you will, but once said or read, can never be completely removed ...

singleton said...

C-
There are always ghosts. Leaving fingerprints. Some disappear. Some reappear. Some haunt us forever, others protect us forever...those we call angels. It's all good.
And Arianna is right. Some of us kids still wear those shoes! Peace, love, and everything in between is just a roadtrip!
