oh, that is SO cute!
The good 'ol days. :)
Great old pic. Everyone is so intent on their cards. I love the finger-waves in your mother's hair.
That's nice - now days, if you spend time with the folks, time is spent in front of the TV and nobody talks.
I wonder if many people still play card games. I was never a card player, just didn't interest me. Nice photo of how times used to be. It's nice to have these old photos to commemorate those we love.
Interesting that your future parents would spend their date night playing cards with parents. It's a great photo.Love,Janie
Love the photo! It looks like they're playing bridge.
Very sweet photo!Your mother looks charming.
Wasn't it wonderful the way people used to live - with no technology?? sandie
Don't you just love this ~~ playing cards ~~ brings back so many memories. Tomorrow is my Mom's 92 birthday tribute. Lots of old pictures there too. Many pics so get ready!Ron
What a great photo! I love it when you give us glimpses into your life.
Marvellous phamily photo. A well-supervised date night? Who can complain?Er, um, . . . forget that last bit.Blessings and Bear hugs!Bears NotingLife in the Urban Forest (poetry)
Great picture! I come from a long line of card players, so there's lots of similar picture in our albums... and in my mind.
I would bet they had a lot of date nights like this :) BTW, my queen bee gets released when the worker bees eat away the marshmallow. Her cage will then be open and she comes out into the hive. When there is sufficient comb in the frames, which doesn't take very long at all, she begins to lay microscopic eggs in the comb cells. That is her only job in the hive.
Ahhhh, the days before TV, computers, cell phones, LOL. My mother saved boxes and boxes of pictures unfortunately a lot of them she never made note of who they were, I have gone thru and marked the ones I know.
What a great treasured photo of a fun moment!
I can remember card nights, just never combined with a date night. Still, it had to be a great way for parents to check out the future beau.
i just love captured moments from the past. i like to look at the hair and clothes and feel like i flipped back in time
Dear Inger, I can so remember the many nights when Dad and Mom and my little brother and I played cards. Mostly pinochle. We played other games as well and did jigsaw puzzles together. All those activities made us a family. Peace.
Dating was different then. Less money. More parent chaperoning. Such a wonderful photo!
Oh now that was fun now people watch Netflix and never interact. Love this photo. B
What a delightful photo. It's really nice how people could have an enjoyable evening without TV and so on.And, is it just me, or does your dad look exactly like his father (and a compliment)?
I love old family photos, Inger. There's something so reassuring about seeing our ancestors doing the ordinary things of life - playing cards, attending weddings and christenings and births - that calms the mad pace of this modern world and, even if only for a moment, returns us to a more gracious, peaceful time.And if the main photo on your blog is a photo of where you live (desert canyon living?) you may end up with me as a squatter because that is just a beautiful view!CheersJudyJohannesburgSouth Africa
Hi Inger - this is a great photo - loved seeing this .. we used to play cards quite often as a family ... and I've always enjoyed them.Cheers Hilary
Fin bild. Här har det regnat hela dagen, suck!!
Love this, Inger! In 1932 this was probably a good way for parents to get to know prospective daughter-in-laws.....the 'card game' can tell them all they need to know! I assume your mother 'played her cards right'!! lolGreat photo. Did you know these grandparents well? I think you may have mentioned them.
Thanks for leaving a comment.. ~~ Inger
