What I really wanted to say about this photo, before I got my knickers in a twist, is that the dress I'm wearing was my favorite dress. The dress with the anchors. It came in a box from America after the war, and I remember seeing it come out of the box and Mother holding it up to me. It was my favorite favorite dress. The box also contained canned peaches. Looks like I ate quite a few.

Really old photo
I am five and my sister, Janie, is two. I have been sent to the store with my two-year-old sister in tow. Maybe it wasn't far; I'm sure it wasn't, but still what was Mother thinking? Gerard who was four was left at home and Toni must have been a new baby. A photographer stopped us and took our picture and then sold it to my mother. Did we get to the store? I imagine we did. I was RESPONSIBLE.
