FAVE PHOTO FRIDAY

The Love family, circa 1923

My paternal grandparents were missionaries in the Cameroons in West Africa from 1911 to sometime in the 1950's. My two uncles (my dad's two older brothers) were both born there. My dad was born in Toledo, OH, but lived in Africa until he was about 7 or 8. This is one of the passport photos taken of the family during that time. My dad is the littlest one, in the sailor suit. He was 3 when this picture was taken.

I love this picture.

I always thought your dad was the cutest person. This picture just confirms it.

What an awesome pic! Those old pics are my favourite. My sisters have a bunch with my mom and grandparents. I want to get them blown up and frame them on my wall.

Just read back through the last few posts. Um, I hate to ask, but has is the eyebrow looking anybetter? I gave up on my eyebrows ages ago. They look like something very wild and wooly frowing over my eyes.
