I'm off for a week or so...



I'm again off for a visit to my old mother - and some friends - in Sweden. Should be back - and posting - again around March 4.

My mother is the one in the middle in the front line, surrounded by parents, sisters and brother (two still to come).

J'aime bien les anciennes photos comme celle-ci.
Bon voyage et comme Alice j'espère aue tu trouveras ta Maman en pleine forme.
Concernant ton post précédent :
J'en ai fait des tours au Bon Marché avec ma Mère et ma Mémé. Cette dernière était couturière et achetait souvent du tissu, pour nous vêtir, faire des dessus de lits et plein d'autre choses.
A bientôt ici Peter. je l'espère !

Bon séjour Peter! Là il y aura de la Vraie neige à photographier... N'oublie pas l'antifreeze pour l'appareil photos.

Enjoy your trip to Sweden and your visit with your mother.

Pourquoi faut-il toujours qu'on dise "old" mother. Il me semble que mes parents ont toujours été vieux, et lorsque je regarde les photos pourtant...
Celle-ci date : le sépia, la pose devant le porche avec l'escalier (quoiqu'on pose encore les photos de groupe), les coiffures les vêtements très simples. Un seul homme fait pour toute cette tribu. Une très belle photo de famille à chérir, des personnes jeunes pour toujours.
Occupe toi bien de ta maman.

Bon voyage,bien le bonjour à ta maman et à la Suède, pays que j'ai dû aimer dans une autre vie... j'espère y retourner bientôt.

Hope your mother enjoys your visit and you enjoy the time with friends in Sweden.

Virginia said...

Peter,
I hope you have a wonderful visit with your mother and that she remains in good health. My best wishes to her. Have a delightful trip and enjoy your time with your friends. I'm sure it is a good time when you all get to be together. We promise not to tell your mother you called her "old"! :) The family photo is something to cherish. I"m sure you already do.

Thank you for sharing this beautiful photo.

All the best, Peter. Have a good stay there.

Nathalie said...

Enjoy your time in Sweden Peter. Surely when you get home you'll find that spring has made nice progress. I agree it's about two weeks late on last year too. I remember taking photos of almond tree blossoms in February last year and there's none to be seen now...

Nathalie said...

And BTW your addendum post on "a few traces" was really worth doing. It is very moving.

marie6 said...

What a wonderful large family! God bless your mum, hope you enjoy your visit too.

Shionge said...

Oh Wow!! I love to see old photographs and this is a treasure. Have a great trip :D

Peter, you have a lovely family! Very beautiful this picture! Love the hair style of your mother... I have this channel style too. Have a nice trip.

I just create a new blog. It's an unpretention and simple blog without spectation... As a matter of fact I don't know if I will go ahead with it... Lol! It is written in Portuguese, but there is on the top of the page a Google Translator, if you want to read it. The name is Leituras (that means Reading). Here the link: http://soniamascaroleituras.blogspot.com/

My kind regards,
Sonia.
