This is my ninth year of blogging the A to Z Challenge. Everyday I will share something about my family’s life during 1950. This was a year that the USA federal census was taken and the first one that I appear in. At the end of each post I will share a book from my childhood collection.
Now and Then
Golden leaves fell in the bushes overnight brightening my yard. Behind my eyes, I walk beside a river with my mother. Trees all golden. A dog splashes in the water, shakes himself . My four year old self watches.

Black and white pictures kind of remind us of the simple pleasures of life … what are you holding in your hands by the way ??
I’m holding a doll in a blanket. I seemed to be often holding dolls.
The leaves Pearl is holding are huge! Nice to see your mother smiling. You have great animation looking, talking and leaning/walking. So much to see in this picture.
They are huge aren’t they?
Lovely memory. And your mother looks beautiful smiling in that picture!

I wonder why she looked so happy.
Your mother looks so beautiful and those are huge leaves!
I wish my mother was still here to hear all the compliments. I wonder what kind of leaves those are!?
Kristin, Just want to tell you I’m enjoying your A to Z series here. Great photos in each post! Especially love the children’s books included, you have a fun collection of them!
I’m glad you are enjoying them. I was excited today to find some of the books being read aloud on youtube and I’ve added them where I can.
Lovely pic of your mom… so many great memories. I was told my grandmother bought me so many little golden books… but I have no memory.
Aww. I wonder if any were the same as the ones I have? I guess I remember them so well because we never threw them out.
