seventies momma

Check out my beautiful 70s mommy!

That's my gene-dad there too but we don't know much about him so... he does look like my brother tho!

I guess my mum is just 21 here, big hair, love the hat! i believe she made that dress herself and folks i'm more than a twinkle on this special day ;)

i was at my uncle Alan's the other day and talking about how i would go about tracking down my long lost gene-dad... seems i have to get me to the library to trawl electoral rolls etc, all seems very dull with more rejection at the other end a real possibility! lol (yeah laugh it up jodester!)

so he says hey check out these old pics i have and dishes out 5 old family albums with pics such as above for me to coo over! pictures like these are priceless... i wonder what she was thinking when this was taken, another shot shows some serious platform shoes (i'm so proud!) so maybe her feet were aching after a long day of wedding nonsense... maybe she was looking fwd to the disco (she is still a party animal!)

i read an article a year or so ago about a photo website that was asking for pics of people's parents from when they were young... lots of cool snaps were loaded up from the 50s/ 60s/ 70s.. might just have to find the site and add my own folks to the collection!

A quiff and a tash

This is Dennis.

You can see in his eyes how bemused he is of my asking to take his picture.

To be fair it's an imposition! He was just serving me and my gorgeous friend Belle a ginger ale and a hot chocolate respectively when I exclaimed "ooh love your mustache"

What can a guy say to this? My friend assured him I meant it, after all I did attend the World Beard and Mustache Championships 2007 in Brighton Lol

I think you have to respect* a man who has both a quiff and a mustache!

Respect to Dennis!

*And take his picture if he'll let you! hehe
