In one of Kathy's recent Q&As, she asked if we had a favorite summer photo. I had stuff going on that week, and never got around to posting responses to that Q&A, but I immediately thought of the photo below. I've posted it before, but it never ever ever ceases to amuse me.
I don't know what the initials on the caption stand for, but this was taken at the pool in Oglebay Park, which is a GORGEOUS municipal park and resort in my hometown of Wheeling, West Virginia, in 1938. The woman on the far left who looks annoyed is .... you guessed it, my mom! I love this picture because she looks so annoyed, while the others all look like they are enjoying being at the pool. When I would ask her why she had this expression on her face, the answer was always some version of: "Oh for God's sake, how the hell do I know, it was a long time ago." (Said in an *extremely* indignant tone.)
I think I love this photo because I find it so amusing, but also because it captures the essence of my mother - she loved to have a good time, but was easily annoyed.
Not that it is like anyone *I* can think of ... ;-)
Have a great weekend, even if others are annoying.
