I just found this terrific meme- Flashback Friday where you post a photo of someone or somewhere from the past. And today I also came upon a great Facebook page: Grew Up in South Florida in the 60s-70s-and 80s. This was pretty exciting looking over all these photos of familiar places where I grew up. Last year I started converting some of my old photos and negatives to digital photos. One of them is a picture from 1956 or ’57 of me, Jimmy (my first husband) on the right in the photo, and his brother Sonny. We used to love to go fishing in the canals along the Tamiami Trail in my hometown of Miami (I say hometown because I lived in Miami almost my whole childhood and through my 20’s and 30’s, but I was born in New Jersey). Jimmy was the consummate fisherman. He knew where, how and when to fish and always came home with a cooler full of fish -and he and I would clean them all, have a fish fry for the relatives or give them away, since he would only eat fresh fish.
Look at those stringers of fish!
