the good ol' days

the good ol' days, originally uploaded by jowrites365.

this is a pic of my parents (aren't they both gorgeous?) back in the day, before they were married, before they were even engaged i believe. i love old black and white photos, especially if they're of people i know.
having known them only all of my life and not all of theirs, it's difficult for me to imagine what was going through my parents' heads at this time, what they felt for each other, what was going on in their lives when someone held a camera up to them and snapped this moment in time... but i'm so very glad this moment was captured.
it makes me want to take more pictures, even of the moments that i feel aren't very noteworthy or maybe aren't even happy times... having records like this around 50+ years later is so worth it.

Thanks Jo for posting this picture. Mom and I have been wondering just how old we were when this was taken. We think it was by the Salina swimming pool and that we were juniors in high school. It certainly brings back a lot of memories and convincies me that I married the most beautiful girl around. Love you, mom and dad
