The day I turned seven

Hi everybody!! We are back to work and our normal duties. Hope you all had a very good week-end. We did not go anywhere away from home. We were in our beds every night, We did take day trips tho, and I am sorry, I did not take the camera. Don't tell Tom, but the camera he got for me is too heavy to carry around. It is a wonderful camera, it does everything, but too heavy for me.
Do you remember when I told you about the Christmas we got to Florida? My Grandmother sent me a red satin dress? Here you see the red satin dress... The year she sent it , it was too large! I couldn't wear it for almost 2 years. This picture was taken on my 7 birthday. I wore that dress out!! I wore it to school, to the club where Dad worked, and to a dance hall that my Mother when on Sunday nights to dance with the men in uniform. I did love that dress!!!
The picture below is of my Mother and me and my pretty red dress!
I am going blog hopping now and see what my friends did for the holiday. See you soon I hope.
Love you all, Fern

P. S. The dog in the picture is a poodle that belonged to a neighbor that I walked down to the end of the park everyday. I also walked Tippie down there at least once aday.
See Ya,


  1. It sounds like you and Tom had fun. We can't wait to hear more.

  2. Hi Fern,
    Great post and pictures. I can nearly see the Red Satin dress shining in the picture. I enjoyed reading the post.

  3. I had a blue and red dress when I was about six that my aunt gave me that I loved. I must say I didn't have the kind of childhood you had so I'm happy you have your Tom to make your life special now.

  4. What a pretty dress, Fern! Mom's Nonna always gave her clothes that she had to grow into too!
    It sounds like you and Tom had a very relaxing labor day holiday!

    Love ya lots
