Uma? Ora?

Filed under: Portraits,Uncategorized — Colby @ 11:46 am

A friend of mine recently mused that it might be fun to go back in time and “hang” with her parents when they were young. It reminded me of a little ditty I had done and I promised her I’d post it.

As we grow older, so do our parents. Interesting how that works. Looking at old photos of our parents as young adults can be intriguing. But, of course, the fashions and styles are from another era. I had wondered what my young twenty-something Mom would look like with a more modern hairstyle. So, I replaced Uma Thurman’s face with my Mom’s from a photo taken in the late 1920s or early 1930s.

Uma? Ora?

I think she’s beautiful.

Aggie Railroad

Not from Texas? Wondering what an “Aggie” is? Just about every place in the world has its groups they like to poke fun at. Us folks in the Lone Star State enjoy teasing “Aggies,” those good people associated with Texas A&M University.

If at first you don’t get the joke, go back and look at the picture.
