Conrad's Stories

The life and times of the Conrad Adam family in Kendall County, Texas

Yours truly

I’m not sure how old I am in this photo, but I can tell you several things about it. I still like purses, the two trees you see are still there, the road directly behind me is now gravel, my mother always had a hat on my head because it took a long time for my hair to grow, the hat is pink, it must be cedar season because my eyes are puffy. This photo was probably taken on Sunday after church. I know the hat was pink corduroy because my mother kept it for a long time. Either she made it, or my maternal grandmother did. I’m sure my grandmother sewed the coat I am wearing. She had five grandkids and she sewed outfits for us quite often. She love to sew.

I thought about reenacting the photo, but there is a fence right in front of the tree, and I would probably hit myself in the head with my purse. My purses are much heavier now because you never know what you might need!

I have a membership to My Heritage and today is the first time I used the colorized tool. Wow! The hat has a hint of pink in it and the coat looks like it’s navy blue. I bet it was. I doubt the grass was green but it looks good green since everything right now is dry and brown.

    What a precious picture! Re-enactment would have been fun, but you would have to find a cute pink hat.

      You’re right! I hadn’t even thought of getting a pink hat!
