A Little Red for Valentine’s Day


These pictures are from 1957 or 1958.  My mom and dad, who were engaged at the time, used to drive around in his red Triumph and pose in front of fancy houses – not the types of places where either of them lived.  They still don’t live in a mansion, but in October 2010, they’ll have been married for 52 years.

Check out Mom’s fab dress and that, um, hat?  Oh, and I love the pearls. Love them.  And look how cool Dad is!

I love you, Mom and Dad!  Thanks for giving me the kind of wealth that has nothing to do with money and fancy houses. 🙂

My mom at 19 or 20. Movie star.

Daddy at 22 or 23.  Rock star.
