Stand by for LOTS of old pictures now that I am, by necessity, looking at every picture in Mama’s photo albums as I re-do them.
When I saw this trio of pictures in the album I’m currently working on, it immediately made me think of this old saying, even though Mama had labeled the second photo “winking” and the third one “blowing a kiss”. And, by the way, I’m just sure that first one, even though it wasn’t labeled, is me listening very closely to what Mama is telling me. I think I can hear her even now, “DON’T STAND UP! DON’T STAND UP! Oh all right, stand up then. But stand still so that you don’t fall while I snap a picture!”
Yes, thank you for noticing. I was quite the stylish little dresser. Socks and sandals — gotta love ’em.
