OK, ok ... I am relenting ... here are some pics when I was younger

I decided to only half heartedly join in with Alicia's Photo Flashback, meaning, that I will not have a regular new Friday update of old photos. Instead I will just add some to this existing blog I posted a little while ago (the date of this post). So if you like, scroll down and see other pics of 'back then'. I reduced them in size so, if you wan to see them in the original, you'd need to click on them.


Well, I was NOT planning to go through my drawer of photos to look for some when I was little, especially considering that just about all of them are still in Germany.

Well, as my friend Beth is participating in a Photo Flashback Meme (linking to Alicia at "More than Words") and asked me to find some old pics, I relented and did get a couple here. I was telling her that seeing I am 56 years old (1953) the pics were black and white with crinkly white edges. Well, Beth, I found one in colour!!! ... and no crinkly white edges LOL.

Anyway, here are the two. I must have been anywhere between 4 and 6 years old (thus roughly 1957-ish). The first one was taken on my birthday when I had a fancy dress party (check out the old radio!). The second one is with my mother at Wiesbaden in front of the Theatre. (click on the pics for the full size).

(well, my mother, this fine aristocratic lady, somehow wound up with this little podgy girl ... ha! ... hhmmm ... was I supposed to smile??)

The Wild Years:

That was in 1972 when I graduated from High School ... check out those 70's trousers (pants).

Then in 1976 I did some modelling ... oh well, those were the days ....

Click on the pics to enlarge them.

Then two years later in 1978 I had become a respectable mother.

1983, breastfeeding daughter. At that time I was already active in the ministry pastoring a small multi-cultural church in Hong Kong ... and she just had to slot in. She was lugged to every meeting and if necessary I fed her carefully and discretely whilest ministering ....

Looking back in gratitude and joyful expectations for the Future!

In Him,

Angelika said...

Thank you for your lovely comments!

Yes, I recently decided to wear scarves in my hair again, and if possible (appropriate) flowers. Have a wonderful weekend!

I love those pictures...the one with you and the flowers in your hair is so wonderful and you look gorgeous. As for the one with you and your mom, I think you look adorable and your mom does, in fact, look every inch the lady!

Finally, don't feel alone...I posted one from 1966 (and 1963 last week)...not everyone doing this is 20!
