BULLIES come in all ages

BULLIES come in all ages
(click to see movie trailer)

Surround yourself with positive people,
energy, and situations;
always avoid negativity.


Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So, love the people who treat you right.

Forgive, and then forget about the ones who don't.

Nifty bathing suits. I think your aunts would faint if they saw what the girls wear today! LOL!


CalBuckeye said...

Do you attend Iditarod to watch it or to participate? I hope you capture it for your blog. I will be eager to see your posts about it, Ms. K! How exciting.

Bobby said...

I bet John can remember sitting on the beach when photos like that were taken.

Tammy Kauffman said...

When I was looking at this the other day something told me it was familiar. My hometown, imagine that!

What a fun photo!! Frederick Maryland is only about 20 minutes from where I live here in Virginia!!
Thanks for stopping by my blog and your comment! We lived in Anchorage for 10 years and saw several of starts of the Iditarod--It was great fun!!We loved our time and our life there--It's like no other place on earth!! :-)

I'm wondering when we'll go back to suits like that. This is a great photo.

I love this pic....when you showed it to us the other day, I was thinking that it looked like something my grandmother had worn....and that would be right around the same time frame....so how cool is that!

dewdana said...

I wish we still had bathing suits like that! Much less anxiety!
When I first read your comment I thought 'well I guess Zack can have all of the margaritas he wants' then I realized I left him out! He was in at one point so I checked him off the list but doggies moved around a lot once they all showed up so it was hard to keep track and I guess he got lost in the shuffle! I added him now and wanted to let you know he is definitely coming along. Sorry he did not make the first try!

Sam said...

I love looking at old photos - the different styles are great!


Ina in Alaska said...

That is one way to show today's Sports Illustrated cover girls how it's done! Lovely picture! I imagine the two sisters enjoying a cool ice cream cone later in the day. Hugs, xoxo

glenda said...

Oh my gosh! Love this picture! Just found your blog.

Chester said...

Very COOL picture! I wonder if that swimmin' hole is still there 'cuz it would be only a 45 minute drive for me to go there.

Have a wonderful Sunday Zack, Sassy and Buddy and your 2 leggers too!

Beth said something about the good old days were the best! I don't know what that means....I'm just a young pup!

JackDaddy said...

I can see their knees and I am just SHOCKED!! Shocked I tell you!!!

Twinkietinydog said...

Nice photo! I love their bathing suits. I think the world would be a better place if humans covered up more at the beach. Have you seen those new string bikinis? I sure wouldn't wear one. Tsk tsk

Alex93andme said...

What a great photo!!! Love the bathing suits!

Farley's Mom said...

Sports Illustrated - Love it! Thanks for sharing, that was great :)

Ninny said...

Very fashionable for their day! Wonderful old photo...



Ha.. mom actually had a similar swimsuit for lifeguarding ... not 1918 but in 1985.

Twix said...

Terrific photo! I've noticed everyone's comments about wishing bathing suits were more like that and less like, well, nothing and I do agree. The other thing I noticed is that your aunts aren't skin and bones. Yay for them! They are real women!

Suka said...

What a great photo! It is so fun seeing old beach photos, of both men and women, from the past. And to have modesty, imagine that!

Thanks for sharing!

Oh how neat... 1918 huh???? My Mom and Dad got married in 1919.. Daddy had been to the Navy and came home and asked Mama to marry him.. She was 11 yrs. younger.. They were married 49 yrs. when Dad died in 1969. He died in May and their 50th anniversary would have been in Sept. that year. Mom lived til she was 91 yrs. old and died in 1991..

Love the old pictures...
