"Fantasy Family"

These photos are from Dead Fred's site. A very, very cool site of found photos hoping to find rightful homes!
Two separate stories this time.

1. I don't know these people, I'll bet they were kind and wonderful.
2. I make it all up, no ill will is intended.

This is little Lucille. She is 2 years old. Her momma works as a domestic at the big house in town, a one hour walk from where she lives. It's the Webber Family that live in that big, fancy house. {You know, the one that has 2 water closets!} There are lots of pretties that momma has to keep shiny- silver tea service on an oval tray, dangly crystal chandeliers and other fine things too. That's Mr. Webber's car that Lucille is sitting on. Mr. Webber is the president of the local bank. Lucille's momma hopes that before her next baby arrives in October her husband will find work. He lost his job with the railroad on Lucille's 2nd birthday.

This photo of Sarah Jean was taken about 2 weeks before she started school at St. Agnes Catholic High School. Her parents are hoping she doesn't get kicked out of this one like she did at St. Mary's!! Sarah Jean still sticks to her theory that Sister Catherine Margaret just didn't understand her "high spiritedness". After all-- all the other students thought it hilarious when Sarah Jean hung 125 bras from the ceiling of the Social Studies classroom.

Darling girl, I so love this game. Looked on the site, but was a bit confused how to find photos....(I'm just such a technical clutz!!)
I guess you just choose surnames at random and look...You see I had to go away and think about that!!
P.S Can anyone join in with your "Families" lives? I'm afraid that my versions would be bizarre in the extreme!!

This is fun! I think I would like to hang out with Sarah Jean. She sounds like a fun girl... no matter what the nuns said!

I am still giggling about Sarah Jean. I almost got kicked out of catechism because I wouldn't stop talking...go figure!

I am wondering if Sarah Jean can come over to my house and play dress-up...
or is she to old for that game?
