Flashback Friday


Say Cheese every-one! One two three - Cheeeeese!

Well, what can I say, this is about as cheesy as it gets. I am the one in the front with the big teethy grin! My brothers are the cool dudes in the front row with the Hawaiian shirts.

I remember this being taken. It was Christmas and we were all at my Grandparent's home in the country. They lived in a huge place with extensive gardens that were surrounded on three sides by a forest of pines and Australian natives. It was a magical place to explore and as children we (younger kids) imagined the Adaams Family lived next door.

The Christmas in question was not too hot and no doubt we were all suffering from bellies tight with roast turkey and double helpings of Christmas pudding! The grandchildren had all been gathered for one of the last group shots of us all together before age and other commitments moved us in different directions.

It is a funny pic and the reason it strikes me as funny is that if you didn't know us (and most of you will not) you would match us all into incorrect family groups. The similarities between me and my cousin are striking in comparison to those between my brothers and myself. Needless to say, I reckon I got the pick of the bunch with my two older brothers and I think Mum and Dad would say the same. Gotta be happy with that!

I also love the 70's frizzy hairdos of my far trendier cousins at the back.

These bloggers love Flashback Friday too, take a look... Flashback Friday... are you in?

Jacinta, do you have a long lost twin sister?

When I was teaching in the country, I had the privilege of having your twin in my class from grade two right up to grade six.

Her name was Janet Clarke and, although a handful at times she was a joy to teach, as all country kids were.

I have a photo of her somewhere and if I had her permission I would post it. Flashback Friday indeed!

re: your comments on my blog. Both were there. Blogger doesn't email me that I have comments so I have to use the moderator so I know who is commenting. Both your comments were there for me to approve.
Thanks Jacinta
