|Me, as the flower girl, age 4, in my cousin Susan's wedding on Saturday, December 16, 1962. Sorry for the picture quality but I was taking pictures of pictures in a photo album in a softly lit room full of candles.|
I really enjoy reading the "Time-Warp Tuesday" installments on my good friend and fellow blogger, Karen's (www.spokalulu.wordpress.com) site. She always gives me a good dose of pleasant memories and happy nostalgia to think about so, I thought I'd do my own "Time-Warp Tuesday." Only, it's now Wednesday so, I think I'll call mine, at least for today, "That Was Then and This Is Now Wednesday." Even with that explanation for a blog entry title, I'm already late in talking about it since this really has to do with this past Saturday, December 16, and the 50th Wedding Anniversary party for my Cousin Susan and her husband Bob. I had the good fortune to help celebrate it with them, and the rest of our family, not only this past Saturday, but also fifty years ago as the four-year-old little girl you see in the pictures above. Yep! That's right. I was in the wedding party as her flower girl. I know, I know--even with the visual, if you know me, it's hard to visualize me as a flower girl, even at the age of four.

|Flower girl (me) and ring bearer (my cousin John) walking down the aisle, together. The only thing I truly remember is going faster than John and turning around to tell him to hurry up. Gosh, I was bossy even then!|
|Fifty years later, still the happy couple with their handsome son, Rob.|
|Fifty years later, the ring bearer, John, and flower girl, me, have aged a bit but I think we still make a pretty good-looking flower girl and ring bearer duo. We are available should you need us for your own wedding events.|
|Bob, me and Susan. What a blessing it was for me to be a part of their history together.|
