Tile Catch Up

The baby doll image and the words came from a vintage FAO Schwarz catalog.Thanks, Julaine! I went to a double-header baptism for my cousin Angella's two children, Dina and Christos, the day I made this tile . See the kids and check out my peeps. My yiayia (grandmother) is the teeny weeny hobbit-sized lady talking to my ginormous cousin Art.

The Famous Portillo's Hot Dog. Yumbo.

This makes me think of me and Les.

My Auntie Katherine as a little girl. The FAO catalog lent the "baby doll" words.

My dad, alias Georgie Porgie, a regular cowboy with my Auntie Pat.

One of the photos I got from Carmen also with an FAO borrowed title.

Pokey Posted Pix. Say that ten times fast.

How many seeing these tiles can guess that that little cowboy would grow into the very handsome (and then very old) Papou we all love?? Yes, that is I, in Lowell, Massachusetts, in 1948.
Stick em up podner!!

Dad: good thing you are wearing that hat, I bet your hair looked pretty bad. The ratty look was out even then.
