Alicia over at More than Words started “Friday Photo Flashback” because of having so many pictures from her PRE-digital camera days. She thought it would be fun to scan them and share them here with you. I’m having so much fun doing this, that I would love for you to join us, too! So dig out the photo albums and put your scanner to good use! Don’t forget to sign in to MckLinky so we can all visit and comment on each others blogs!  I personally think it’s a great idea, and sounds like fun!  I totally love old pictures.  Please come join us – it’s really a lot of fun.  Just sign up to my friend’s linky at Friday Photo Flashback (link above).  You’ll love walking down memory lane – just as I do!

This is my dad and me over at 12th St. Beach in Chicago.  It’s probably 1952.  Yes, I was a Daddy’s girl.

Are you a blogger over 40? Yeah, welcome to the club!
Please join in the fun and get to know your fellow bloggers at Never Growing Old!!

“In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So here on Fridays we’re taking it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’m asking a simple question for you to answer & nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link at the very friendly place of Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends and find new followers!

My question is:  What are you going to miss about this past summer the most?

I’m going to miss vacation time.  I love vacationing, getting away and driving somewhere we’ve never been before.  I’m also going to miss visiting and people visiting me.  I become pretty much a hermit in the winter unless someone comes to visit me.  HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND & THANKS FOR STOPPING BY.  HOPE TO SEE YOU AGAIN REAL SOON!

Thanks for Subscribing to emails. Hope you stop by to comment, too.



    we will miss the boys being here and going to the pool everyday!


    How cute is your picture!!!


    you’re such a cutie..were you a father’s girl? like this bring back memories..=)


    What a precious photo of you and your daddy!


    Nice vintage shot. Both my girls are Daddy’s girls…


    Love the photo of you and your dad! As far as your question, I don’t think I’m going to miss very much of anything from this summer. I cannot wait to have cooler weather. It’s been triple digit heat in Phoenix all summer long.


    All our photo albums are in a container in Finland! 🙂
    Follow Friday 40 and over greetings from Casablanca, Morocco…


    What a great pic of you and your dad! I love when you share these photos.

    Happy Aloha Friday as well. I will miss being at stay at home mother from this summer. the very first ever in my kids’ life.


    I love the early morning sun rises.

    Have a great Friday!


    Awwww Dolly, that’s a sweet picture. Here voting again (smiles). I’m a hermit too in the winter – but I think a lot of women are too.



    The warmth..hate the cold…and the longer days of sunlight.


    Awwwe, I love your flashback pic!! That is just too cute. And what will I miss about this summer?? I’ll never be 45 during the summer after this year – maybe I’ll miss that. ha ha I don’t like the heat so I’m not a big summer lover but I don’t like ice either. Go figure. Have a great weekend ~ ♥


    I’m already following but I just wanted to stop by and say Hi! 🙂


    The only thing I will miss is family visiting.


    I’m going to miss the days of no schedules! Now its time for packing lunches, homework, etc..ugh!

    Have a great weekend!


    Love the photo of you with your father. You can tell that you’re daddy’s girl!

    Summer has flown by for me because it has all been about finding a house, selling our house, packing to move, moving, and settling in. We still have boxes to unpack! Summer has been incidental to it all, and I missed it.


    Your picture is great, I grew up in Chicago too! Our old beach photos often have bathing caps in them, remember those? I too have enjoyed getting out the old photos, but they sure look older than I feel. By the way, we are often in Batavia, both of our moms live at the Holmstad. Small world!


    I’m gonna miss vacation too, but mostly barbecued steak~


    Thanks for stopping by my blog! I know I’m going to enjoy participating in the photo flashbacks. Plus it will motivate me to get all of those old photos scanned! I went to college near Chicago, but never went to the beach there. ~ so glad to meet you!


    That is a great picture of you and your dad! Precious! I don’t think I’ll miss anything about this summer! I look forward to moving on! I will miss the vegetables out of the garden though! Have a great weekend!


    I will miss long sunny days.


    Hi Dolly:
    Please stop by my place, I have an award for you.


    Oh goodness! That is the sweetest picture!

    Blessings & Aloha!
    (catching up on some blog reading…catching up is the story of my life! ha ha)


    i so love your photo!!! and there’s another daddy’s girl over here! 🙂 high five lol


    Wow! It’s amazing that you have this photo! Wow look at you then huh.

    I’ll miss the longer daylight savings times!
