Friday Photo Flashback ~ 1968

Friday Photo Flashback
I recently was tagged in a photo on Facebook.  That's something that has been so fun as I become reacquainted with friends from so long ago. 

I really love Facebook! 

Pictured left to right is Linda, me, Kathy, Donna, Chris and Christine 

The Lindenhurst High School Twirlers

We were marching in a parade.  Parades were always a big deal growing up in Lindenhurst, New York.  That's on the south side of Long Island in Suffolk County.  Most of the town turned out to celebrate each holiday.

Notice the pizzeria in the background offering 25 cent slices.  A friend also pointed out the telephone number.  That's how it used to be.  We'd call TU 4-6540.  After that prompt, I actually remembered my phone number from that time.

The American flag and the older model cars are seen in the background if you look carefully.

You can hop over to Alicia's blog More Than Words to link up and add your pre-digital photos for Friday Photo Flashback.

Blessings and love,

Debbie Petras

    I remember the phone numbers being like that and a lot of other things from that simpler era.

    Love you honey!
