Like Old Times







1950's Bathing Suit: 1385

Today is Jonny and my second day in North Carolina visiting my Papa. We took at trip down to the lake so I could take a swim! Ever since I was a little girl I'd come to this spot to swim when I would visit my Nanny and Papa for the summer. My Papa would always swim under the water where I couldn't see him and grab my leg so I'd scream thinking the lake monster was going to eat me, lol! We've been having a wonderful time visiting and looking at old pictures of the family. I'm going to scan some of my Nanny and Papa back in the 1940's that I can't wait to show you! Soon we're off to dinner at the golf club to visit with some of Papa's friends.
Talk to you soon!
