Thank you all for joining me in posting your family photos.
My photo for today is this picture of my daddy. "Daddy" may sound a bit childish, but that's what I called him. He called me "Little girl" until I was fifty-five years old. I miss that.
Daddy had a small swing band in the 30's called The Novelty Swingsters. He played mandolin, guitar and banjo in the band. Outside the band he played piano and accordian. Music was always a part of Daddy's life.
This photo was taken from an old home movie. That old film is the only visual I've had of his band. It seems that no photographs exist.
Below is a dance ticket admitting one to a Halloween dance at Owens-Illinois glass factory where Daddy's band was playing that evening.
Please take a few minutes to visit those who have posted their favorite family photo and leave a comment.
As my five-year old granddaughter Kathryn says, "Grandma, photographs are for memories, you know". No truer words have ever been spoken.
