A few years ago Casey was given all the old photos my dad had of him and his family and he scanned then all and touched them up. I'm grateful he was able to do that. I love looking at old photos and getting a glimpse of the past. And I love hearing my Dad's stories ab0ut when he was growing up and what his life was like. Our trip to New York reminded me of these photos so I thought I would share a few. Well, actually it was very hard for me to choose so I am sharing a lot of them.
My dad Ed, in his crib outside of the farmhouse on Hosenfeld Road
He looks a lot like my nephew Ethan here.
My Grandma and her little sister.
My dad was a band geek! A man loves his trumpet.
My dad with his mom and my great grandparents. Are those brownies on the kitchen table? No boxed brownies back then just pure homemade goodness.
Another shot of Eddie with his trumpet case in hand. Probably on his way to a very important performance.
When we went to see his childhood friend Richard and his wife Carolyn, they brought out their old photo albums and many more entertaining photos were revealed. There was a phase when my dad looked like a logger with a big beard and there were some other shots where he resembled a young and rebellious Paul Newman. Doesn't it just fascinate you a little to think about what your parents were like before you were around?
