I love this. It was a time when the men and women who are/were our parents were young and hopeful. A time when altruism was natural and the thought of defending freedom and democracy and our country was a natural thing. Now we have global thinking which leads to identity loss and when real need arise, no one is accountable and everyone looks back to the US for solutions and blame!

Your mother is beautiful. What a poignant picture though because communication was not instant and a relationship was only as strong as the love and loyalty in one's heart for another soul.

I am grateful to your parents Deborah. They made sacrifices to help restore freedom and democracy in my country and help the people of my country.

Please tell your parents, especially your father that I hold them with high esteem and regard in my heart. Thank you.

This car reminds me of one that I rode in that had a rumble seat in the very back. It has been a long time since I have seen a car with a rumble seat.

LOve those old pics. I have quite a few them from folks early days. My little brother put then all together in a CD and each one of us got a copy...makes it so nice to just go back and look at them and their youth.

I'm having a giveaway on my blog for a Sony Touch Reader and the Reader gets sent to a soldier of the winner! Just thought you might be interested :)

Interesting to note that a hot girl and a fast car always lead to something. It has not changed since man invented the wheel. The caveman can say all the Argh! Argh! and the Ugga! Ugga! at the sight of a beautiful woman but if he was pushing a wheel, there may be more chances of a beautiul cavewoman saying "Okay, caveman, what do you want?"

Ces said...

Oh BTW, I am not insinuating that there are cavemen involved in this post, I am just citing history.
