Photos of photos

I took photos of the photos of my zaidy after the unveiling last weekend.  This one is stuck to my buby's fridge.  Here he is, her handsome prince:

When he was a very young man, he served as a airplane mechanic and test pilot for the Royal Canadian Air Force.  Isn't he handsome in his uniform?  At 6'3" he was quite an impressive fellow. 

Here he is with my buby.  I believe she was a bridesmaid at the wedding of one of her 4 sisters.  My mother says that if buby has remembered the date correctly, she is pregnant with my mother in this photo.

Then I found this picture of my mother's youngest sister in 1960.  What is a nice, Jewish girl doing on a mall Santa's knee?  It's a mystery to me.  Maybe she was hoping that Santa doesn't descriminate.  He could pop down the chimney and leave some gifts for her under the hanukiah.

It's easy to love a man in uniform:) Will you be making an inquiry about the young sister at Santa's knee. That's funny.

Your zaidy was indeed a handsome young man! It's no surprise he swept your buby off her feet. She's lovely too, so clearly it was a mutual sweeping. :) They look very happy together.
