That's my mommy aka the blond bombshell on the left but Aunt Georia is quite the blond bombshell herself! Way to go Uncle Joe!

My Mom has told me stories about what great dancers Uncle Joe and Aunt Georgie use to be! She said they looked amazing together out there on the dance floor! Apparently Uncle Joe was pretty smooth on the dance floor! I've seen them a few times dancing at family weddings over the years and it's very obvious that they've had a lot of fun dancing together. I wonder if that's how they met? I'll have to ask about that one. Don't you just LOVE the jacket my aunt is wearing in that top picture!!! I wonder if she still has it and her dress?

*All pictures provided by my sassy cousin Sheri....daughter of the above! Oh and more thingy...if you look at the post of my grandfather holding the hands of 2 little kids, The little one on the right is Aunt Georgie!
