My best guess is this was taken in the late 70’s or early 80’s. Not sure why, but when cleaning out their place, this was printed as a poster and mounted on foam core. Here’s what all of this brings back and why you should be posting a Throwback image on your blog for you clients.
First, it’s a reminder of my Dad’s sense of humor. For example, he loved to write stuff that was funny. Every time there was a milestone anniversary or birthday of one of their friends, Mom would put Dad to the task of writing a poem. Consistently EVERY time she’d hear the first draft and make him clean it up. I can hear her saying, “Ralph, that’s so dirty. You can’t say that in a poem!”
Second, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. I have Dad’s genes, and I’m proud of it. Dad always had a joke, a one-liner to share for virtually any situation. He was always willing to go a little out on the limb for a chuckle.
Well, it’s Throwback Thursday and time for you to remind your clients that printed images last. Had this been anything other than a print, I’d never have found it, and the memory would have been lost.
Happy Throwback Thursday everybody! Now, take ten minutes and share something from your stash with your readers! Make a point about memories, printed photographs and the magic only a professional photographer can bring into a family’s life.
