Hi Everyone! My Mom and I went to Payson the other day to visit with my Aunt Betty. I have such fond memories of her. One thing I remember so well is her phonograph record player. It played 45 records. She had the song Tequila by the Champs. The song was popular in 1958. I would play that song over and over and over. Now, I have never tasted Tequila. Never had any alcohol. but I love that song! as a side note, Bruce and I were at a Texaco function several years ago. big dinner somewhere. the entertainment? The Champs! loved it!
another memory. When I was about 5 years old, my aunt was in high school. she took a sewing class. she made a grey jumper with a red dotted swiss blouse. One outfit for her and one for me! There was a fashion show for all the girls to models their outfits they had made. She and I walked the cat walk together! I felt so grown up!
My Uncle took these pictures for us. He was using my smart phone. My aunt and uncle are not teckies. They do not even have a computer. So heads are a little cut off and we were talking - a lot!
We never shut up. And lots of laughing!
Now,, the last memory. I remember this hanging in my grandparents home. I remember running my hands over it, fascinated by the detail. She made this when she was17 years old in shop in high school. She took shop in 1957! I wonder if there were any other girls taking shop with her. She told me that she found the picture on the front of a Arizona Highways magazine. Her teacher helped her transpose it onto the oak. she carved it. I love it! She gave it to me, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
I brought her a quilt. Which I didn't take a picture of.... sorry. but it was a pink roses kaleidoscope. I will have to hunt around to see if I have any pictures anywhere.
