Good Morning! I hope everyone is doing well so far this week. I kept myself pretty busy yesterday with my photo project. I probably scanned, named and filed about one hundred, or more, pictures yesterday. I've found some real treasures. A few of the photos are so neat...however, I am unsure of who is in them. LOL
I found a great photograph of my Aunt Miriam when she was a baby. She is 20 years older than my mother...so I am going to guess it was taken around 1923. It is so neat looking and it is actually a postcard. What a great way to share your children with family that don't live nearby. Although I would be afraid it would get bent or torn and my child would arrive looking a bit like Frankenstein. LOL
Anyway, I wanted to share a few pictures of my Mom and Dad with ya'll.
This is my dad, Joseph Leo Corral, as a child.
This is my dad in his Army uniform. He went in when he was 17. I sometimes wonder where he *served. I know Ray's father is just 3 months older than dad and he also went into the service when he was just 17.
*Oops, I meant where he was trained. I know he was a paratrooper in Korea.
Obviously I am going to have to work on that photo and try to repair the scratches and bends.
This is my mother and her sisters, let's see if I get them correct...in the back, Margaret and Alice (left to right). In the front (left to right) Miriam, Judy (my mom) and Rosemary. No...I think I have Miriam and Alice mixed up. It's hard to tell, the one in the back looks more like Miriam, but she is small like Aunt Alice. Yeah, the more I think about it and look at the picture...I think Miriam is in the back right and Alice is on the left front.
MOM! Who's who? LOL Actually, once I get these all scanned I'm going to need to have her come up and look at the photos and tell me who some of the people are. As I said, this is going to be quite a project. But so well worth it, I think. But then I love old photo's and the history that comes with them.
Have a great day & hugs to all my friends!
