Some of you may know Im a huge Seals n Crofts fan...I listened to the old LP's I have till they barely play and it makes me sad, cause it's like another part of my youth gone...I enjoyed those days with my mind full of Jasmine and not in 2021...
can it to be 1972 again PLeASe???
Yes I want to go back to 1972, an old favorite song can take you right back there to the Jasmine in your mind. So I worked on a craft project this week and I sat at the table painting and I put my Summer Breeze 33rpm on the old turntable...and as I painted I replayed all these wonderful memories.
Me, Jones Beach NY 1972
... comparing people of these days to people of those days, I see most of the people looked fit and they were up DOING something no one was lounging in a chair, they were swimming, playing in the sand, interacting with the surroundings, not cell phones!
John was a jockey in the 60's in England where was born and lived until 1963, This is his first winner, Spring Brough.
Here in my hometown there's 2 Racehorse Training Centers that is where we met, I was an exercise girl and he was training at that point... That meant I exercised race horses 6 days a week...That is the crowd John and I hung with we were part of that scene back in 1972, so we attended lots of dinner/cocktail parties, notice the decor in our old Apartment, and the clothes we wore..
Sorry there was not much I could do with editing these photos since the originals are 49 yrs old...half a freakin' century. His tie was a bright mustard yellow, and my outfit was big legged bell bottomed pants with a matching fitted button up top. We always "dressed" when we out anywhere except to work at the Track.
One of my favorites horses, Belmont Park, 1973 Summer
We went to the Hunt Ball in 1973 and we got married in the same outfits Valentines day of 1974..
John had never had a dog in his entire life, me I spent my whole life with dogs...these 2 became inseparable.
for 40 years
Our Foot Prints in the sand...on a day filled with Summer Breeze.
