Mom circa 1950

It is one of the photos that I look at and think "Is that me, or Mom?" Except that I never owned a checked cap embroidered with Fran on the peak or those funky mid-century fashions, it really could have been me--same hair, same face, same soft arms.

It must have been taken at summer camp or on holiday. Doesn't Mom look like she's trying to be serious but wants to laugh? I wonder who snapped the picture?

The photo was taken at a neighbor's summer beach area cabin. It was a bayside cabin and quite removed from the bay as I recall. Fishing was the major recreation for the guys and cleanig fish was the girl's recreation.

I have no idea what 'look' I was going for in that picture, but there certainly was a plan.

So in the hidden hand you must be carrying a fish knife. Now I understand the expression on your face. Still don't quite get the fashion...

The fashion? Ah, there's the rub. I didn't quite get fashion either. Still don't, it seems.

Very nice.
