Back to school in the 1950s

This is what many of us looked like.We were darling,yes?
Our dreams.....and our cartoons.

what we wore to school
our lunches.......oh like it was yesterday.
These are the ladies I thought I would look and be like when I grew up

I would marry someone just like Him



How about these men and women,didn't you think this was going to be a little like your future?


I was sure these  ladies would be me in the future..I thought they looked like the ladies in my family.

In reality this is who I turned out to be-what happened to my 1950s dream?

Denise...you sure brought back tons of memories to me with your post. I love the little school dress and am sure I had one very similar!
Great post, as always.
Love, Linda

Great pictures of OUR era....and if you (and I) turned out to be like Aunt Bea....then we did alright. Andy couldn't have raised Opey without her!!

I went to grade school in the 60's but those images were very familiar ones. When we are so young , we cannot fathom how much things will change in our lifetime. Very thought-stirring .

Oh dear, dear Denise....you are writing poetry my dear, YOU ARE WRITING SO LOVELY! And the cottages in the previous post are as sweet as my home, Rabbit Hill! And this post, I had a lunch box like that, my mom wore aprons and I also thought I would stay at home just like her. But that did not turn out like I thought it would, but that is fine. I have LOVE in my LIFE WITH GOD AND MY HUSBAND and the gifts that God has given me. YOU ARE SO SWEET TO COME BY and read my post twice. Blessed be Jesus and the life He has accorded us. Anita

One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
