Today I feature a picture of, Gasp . . . my Mom. The photo was taken in 1949. Personally, I think the photo is a little Risque, particularly for 1949. I mentioned in a post a while back that she once wore a 1910's bathing suit to the beach, and took her pet monkey along. A photographer for a San Antonio newspaper saw her at the beach, took her picture in the old swimsuit with the monkey, and then the picture ran in the newspaper. I guess the picture generated a lot of attention, so they contacted her and asked if she would have a new picture taken, this time with the monkey, and a modern bathing suit. Then they ran the pictures side-by-side, showing her in the new and old bathing suits.
Luckily, after this little lapse of judgement and modesty, my mom got straightened out, and led a productive and decent life.
