Sepia Saturday70 - HH in his hey days

Sepia Saturday #70

I have a picture of a handsome guy 
taken long before I knew him.
The dark haired fellow on the far left is now HH, Handsome Husband
at 19.
He was an usher in his cousin's wedding, the bride.
This picture was taken in 1957.
His cousin, the bride and he are the only folks left that are in this picture.
I showed it to HH he said he could not even remember being in this wedding.
Wonder where his wondering devil eye was looking? 
It wasn't at me in 1957.

This church was built in 1951 and he was one of the workers that layed the foundation.
That means he was working at 13. 
Yep the construction was done by the local community and they would take whoever they could find that wanted to work.
HH has always been ready to work, that is up to now.
He is retired now and by golly he is gonna stay that way.
While raising 6 children, he had as many as three jobs at one time. 
He worked so much how did we ever have 6 children?
I was always working too, at least it seemed that way.

God was always blessing us with a child.

He is retired and by golly retired he is gonna stay.

Go here for more Sepia Saturday

Is he threating you that he want's to go back to work? Tell him he can work for you at home or he can work at being together at home with you. Chooses are are always good to have by golly.

I hope you don't have a list of jobs for him. If he's like me he will have more than enough to do. Retired - that's when I've gone to bed.

Isn't it wonderful how colour tints have come to have historical significance. The best example is perhaps our own "sepia" which immediately suggests a period about 100 years ago. But that reddish tint that you got with so many early colour photographs is equally resonant of a time. Great photo, thanks for sharing it.

The six kids were a result of homework.

I ended up with photos that color once when I used outdated film.

What a neat photo!

Just lengthen his "honey-do" list and he'll see he has no time for an outside job...
