The Early Years Part #4

I'm the one on the left. I was at 3 1/2-4 years old at the time.
Me at 5-6 years old
Me at 3 1/2- 4 years old. This was taken in Carmel, IN Here I am at 3 1/2 years old doing my best Howdy Doody impersonation or maybe with the hair, it might have been my best Elvis impersonation.
Here I am in Carmel, IN and I was 3 1/2-4 years old. Look at the car in the background.
No peeking!!!
Here I am at 3 1/2 weeks old
The rest are of me at 3 1/2 years old. My table etiquite left much to be desired and depending on what I am eating, it hasn't got much better to this day.

Came across you site by accident. I would have passed on by except for the old photos. Being a photographer, I had to take a peek. Loved the Howdy photo. He is universal, isn't he?

Please feel free to visit my blog at: crisfieldnews.blogspot.com. It is a new site I have been working on. I have not released it in this area yet.

Hey there Rick, similar to Patty, was just updating and trying to refine my blog and I came across yours.
Your pictures just invoke something which I think is missing now in spite of all our sophistication - or am I being a tadge romantic looking back through rose tinted spectacles! there is just something very special about old B&W photos.

I'll certainly be stopping by at your blog Patty.

(Open invite to all to take a look at my developing effort takeawaythoughts.blogspot)

They are beautiful photographs. It's so great to come across personal things like that. Sometimes people don't always post interesting stuff when it comes to personal items, but these are really lovely.

And the car is coooool!!!

personal blogs, like pictures, are snapshots of our lives over time, both enhancing our memories of that time and keeping it alive long after the event. I love posts that combine the two. Thanks for sharing! ~carey
