I love seeing old pictures from when I was growing up. This is Halloween 1969 or 1970. My brother Jim is a motorcycle dude and my brother Jay is the lady. I’m in the middle going as myself. My older two siblings were already past Halloween age.
Actually back in the day Halloween wasn’t such a big deal. People didn’t really buy costumes. My parents were not into Halloween at all. We were allowed to dress up for the school Halloween party that was held in the evening on Halloween night. I wasn’t old enough to be in school so I didn’t get to go. I can imagine that mom wanted to take a picture of the boys and I threw a fit and wanted to be in the picture. (Hey I am the youngest in the family and I admit I did throw a fit or two)
Notice the candy in my hand. I am sure that was given to me to pacify me that I wasn’t going to get to go to the party.
My brother Jay is still really into Halloween. He comes up some amazing costumes and has been known to win contests regularly. Me..I gave up on dressing up for Halloween went I got married. I have never really been into Halloween. I hate feeling scared…safe feels good to me.
It sure is fun to go back and look at old photos. I love seeing the curtains mom had in the house…I love seeing how I used to stand on the side of my feet like I am in the photo just like my daughter Kalissa still does to this day. It’s fun how old pictures bring back old memories.
Happy Halloween to you all!!
