Is that you, Pat? It looks like you. Wow! What a beautiful picture! The fella's pretty fit too.

PI said...

Yes Sam it is - taken some years later. I did a lot of work with him and he used to keep me in stitches - which was fine unless it was meant to be a sad photo shoot.

I knew that was you right away. Same gorgeous cheekbones, same sparkly smile. What an amazing legacy for your grandchildren. My grandfather used to write ads like these and I have a few around the house. But to actually be in one? Ridiculously cool!

PI said...

Welcome mom101. One of the most famous photographer in my era was an American - Leo Aarons and he - I believe - was the first person to be able to retouch colour photographs.

Kath said...

Very romantic and happy

Hah! I know this couple: Pat and....uh...Mike?

PI said...

Hoss: well done - half right! are you still gallivanting in Texas?

Z said...

You haven't changed a bit.
People always say how interesting it is for one's grandchildren. I guess our children are supposed to take their parents for granted - but I should think yours are pretty proud too.

fjl said...

Dad regards people who can't appreciate either Ginger Rogers or Fred Astaire with complete disdain.
I think their generation were very impressed by this 'look', and of course the dancing skills.

PI said...

z; the grandchildren are interested - especially if either I or their parents have done anything naughty. The parents are more incined to edit. For myself I get carried away and forget I am a grand-mother!

Felicity: oh to have a fraction of the skills!

WAOOW!!! Beauty. Glamour. And you're as beautiful as ever, Pat.

PI said...

Thanks GG - We're glad you're back.

elizabeth said...

Yes. You were beautiful then - and you are NOW too. I wish I had a picture of me in a dress like that!

PI said...

Hi Elizabeth and welcome. It is nice to be complimented on how one looks - especially now - but I was bred to believe its what's inside that counts and I'm still working on that.
(Pi is my cyber name after all!)
