Throwback Thursday

Richard with his first brand new car. A 1955 Oldsmobile. He was just out of the Army. 23 years old! He spoke often of this car. And always lovingly! As only a guy with his first car can do......

  3. Oh my. That brought back memories. My dad bought a new car around that time ... it was a green and white ford with big wing tail sections. I remember that car because he bought it without my mother's knowledge. She was angry. I blogged about that experience because a few years ago mom and I were on our way to mass and in the parking lot was the exact same car in the same color - restored. I was very excited and asked mom if she remembered dad's car - she didn't. Either her dementia was in play or she was still mad at my dad for that purchase. :-)

    1. I love how these pictures bring back memories for others. Maybe she was still mad :)

  6. This is great!
    I'm not sure why Richard looks older than 23 here. Maybe the spiffy clothes, or the De Niro attitude? :)

    1. I think he looks older too...but he is only 23! And his attitude is what I was always attracted too!
