Happy HallowTweet

This is the big day, and I have spent the morning culling photos and scanning. I bring you a Shoes Family Halloweens Through the Years. First up is Grandma Shoes On My Mother’s Side. Here we see her modeling a grass skirt, circa WWII, some sailor brought them home for my mom and her mom. Under the coconut trees on Grandma’s front yard (the side facing the river). Check out the coy little ankle.


And then Mummy, probably the same year she dressed me in the gypsy costume. Taken at Seymour’s Inn Halloween Dance, Jensen Beach in the early 1950s. She was something fierce, my mummy.


The fun couple that was my Mummy and Daddy: all taken at Seymour’s. I wish we had a Seymour’s today. A classic road house: a bar and very casual family dining at the foot of a popular fishing bridge, across the river from a popular public beach.


Artist and Majorette


Peter (of Peter and the Wolf, with his popgun) and Mary Mary Quite Contrary.


Little Lord Fauntleroy and Little Bo-Peep


Miz Shoes in Peacock Drag (it was the night that the RLA first told me he loved me)

And Miz Shoes as a wood nymph, loosely interpreted.

You look very sexy, Ms. Shoes.  I always knew Max and Florence were playful and in love…
