My mom is second from the left in the top row.
My Uncle Eddie is last on the right in the front row!
My mom, who was raised by her brother-in-law and older sister (as explained here), was constantly involved in pageants and choral performances. So was mom's older brother Eddie. The following scenes are from some of them, running from the late 1920s to early 1930s, by my estimate.
My Uncle Eddie is on the far right.
Eddie and my mother, Anita.
Here's mom, slightly older. (I'd say late teens.) She's first on the left in the middle row. Her sister Josie sits third from left in the same row.
And just to show that mom's tendency to dress in costumes made it to the next generation, here are a few photos of Yours Truly over the years.
I actually played a dog in a high school production of "Cheaper by the Dozen."
That's Yours Truly on the far left, as Ebenezer Dorset in "The Ransom of Red Chief." The only good role I ever got in high school!
Dressed as a "greaser" for April 1st, 1974.
While working as I waiter, I dressed as Moses for Halloween!
And here I am in my favorite band -- well, the favorite band I was ever in, that is -- Viper!
Be sure to check out the other Sepia Saturday entries. Personally, I don't think I'll get to most of them until Monday!
And thanks for your time!
