My mom does remember my grandfather talking about being a little girl, as I recounted in my previous post. What I didn't remember though, is that he was the Youngest of three brothers. That is my grand-dad, cute as a button, in that pretty white dress.
My Aunt K, (Mom's younger sister) who read my blog entry, said that she remembered her dad teasing her that yes, he was once a little girl, and had the picture to prove it. And there it is, above.
My grandfather died at a very young age of a massive heart attack. I never met him. I wish him Happy Father's Day however and think of him this time of year. Why? Because this is the time of year that kids say - "Gee, there is Mother's Day, and Father's Day - when is it Kid's Day?" My mom says his answer was always - "EVERY DAY is Kid's day!"

I wonder if the child with the long dark ringlets is a boy. In those days, all little ones were dressed in skirts. My mom tells a story about her father, my grandfather. When she and her brother were acting up, he would solemnly say,
"When I was a little girl, we never acted like this!"
"Oh, dad, you were never a little girl!" they would reply.
"Oh no?" And he would pull out a photo much like this of him and his younger brother, dressed in white blouses, skirts, and stockings. That silenced them!

Today I have for you the Twice 55 Community Songs, the New Green Book. I believe the copyright is from 1930, though I admit I have trouble understanding roman numerals. I found it in my favorite thrift store for 69 cents.
There is much that has been lost.
