I've photos of an Uncle in sunny climes during that time - at least they had something to smile about ;)
When I look at pictures of my parents, long before I was a glimmer in the eye, I'm always struck by how young they were. And that they had a life before me! Same with you?
You are so lucky that your Dad never went anywhere without his camera. The only photos I have of my parents before I was born are their wedding photos.
I appreciate your comments!
