old photos

bop & jive

beer!

the best thing about looking at old photos of your parents is realising that most everyone is the same when they’re young (beer! braai! party hats! dancing! fun!). [check out that speedo in the background]

birth-yay

dee-baby-bday

i was born 26 years ago today (eep). my family has a tradition that when one of the kids has their first birthday, they get their own cake & have carte blanche with it. mine was vanilla with pink icing, a sign of things to come -  vanilla is still my favourite.

i still eat cake like that, too.

woodstock 1969

40 years ago this weekend: love, peace, music, mud & tons of drugs. the photos, stories, videos etc make me nostalgic for something i could never have experienced myself (make sense?). i would have enjoyed seeing creedence clearwater revival, the who & other greats.  anyway, love me some hippies.  photos: life mag

jack + anjelica

whoa! how cool are jack nicholson & anjelica houston? mega. i wish they were still together, forever. so, everyone loves vintage photos, and everyone loves cool people. so if you don’t already know this, go to google image search , type in [insert cool person's name here] source: life and click on search. you are thus entering the wonderful world of LIFE magazine’s photo archives.  i have done this for hours, do yourself a favour and search sophia loren! and paul newman… ultra dreamboat.
