Old Days, Part 2

K Nana PJB Coco JE
This was taken in the 1970s at my grandparents’ home. That’s me, looking through old photos with Nana (my grandmother, Emilie), my dad, Coco (my grandfather, Morton) and his cousin Johanna Eckstein. Her father, Nathan, was a great man in Seattle. (In looking this up, I found a superb historical resource on my mother’s family, the Schwabachers.)

I LOVE this walk down memory lane with you. OF course, these are all NEW memories for me. LOL.
YOU have always been beautiful...and you continue to as well.
I love seeing the old fashions...and hairdos. :)
This cracked me up: "Even though the marriage was a disaster, the flowers and the dress were pretty."


You are the best.

Hi Karen! Time to 'catch up' a bit. Love the walk back into the 70's and 80's. What a nice looking family you have.
