071615black and whiteThis week’s topic is Older Than 50 Years (1965).  The one question everyone asks if you can have people over 50.  The answer is yes, but I would hope they have a lot of character and are closer to age 100.  The possibilities are endless for this challenge is endless.   Have fun and use your imagination and creativity with this topic.

  1. Your picture looks just like my Dad’s handwriting. I found a little notebook where he listed expenditures…probably 60 years old at least–but yours is much more atmospheric. I love pictures of old letters and books and handwriting. Love your picture. Mine is a bit of a twist–perhaps cheating..but.


  2. I love your black and white photos, and I love vintage books. Is the diary from someone you know? It has got to be a real treasure to read. I remember seeing the gas pumps like the one pictured, only without the rust. 🙂
