I Can Still Smell the Coppertone and Bain de Soleil

Virgin Islands 1970, originally uploaded by blondemom.

Who is this mystery couple of international intrigue, circa 1970, and is it possible that this woman could have given birth to a fabulous baby girl (hint, hint) the previous summer?

Are they extras for a James Bond flick?

Speaking of extras, need any for the Osmond family reunion?


Can you tell I am having fun with my new printer slash scanner slash copier toy from Kodak?

(Which I plan on revealing more about next week during a big Thanksgiving giveaway!)

Oh, and 1971 called. I have your comforter and Yosemite Sam alarm clock.


p.s. Jess at Oh, the Joys wrote a lovely post recently about old family photos.

    The second photo is priceless! Not only for the very dated family portrait, but the little blonde girl (Hmmm) peeking out from behind the posed gang is precious!

    If you click through on the lovely rockin’ couple on the beach photo, you’ll find that they are my parents! Yes, it’s true. My mother is 36 in this photo and had had FOUR babies. I try not to hate her for looking so good in a bikini after having four children. 😉

    I’m the youngest little one peeking behind the Partridge Family, I mean my mom, sisters, and brother.

    And that’s me talking on the phone when I’m 2 years old.

    I love these!

    I am in the middle of scanning in our family photos. I’m writing them to a CD to include with each person’s Christmas gift.
