My sister Vera was born on Leap Year Day in 1948. That means she’s 15 years old today. Well this is just the 15th time that her actual birthdate has occurred in her lifetime.
Vera is the one on the bottom row holding the cake. I’m next to her holding the skirt of my dress. My sister Kathy is in the top row between our cousins June and Nancy. My brother Fred is the the one in the overalls on the bottom row. My cousin Vera is next to me and my cousins Mike and Bill are in the top row as well.
This has to be Easter judging from the dresses and the white patent leather shoes. Vera, Kathy and Me.
This is Vera and me sometime in the 50’s. Fall or Winter judging from the black patent leather shoes! 🙂
This is a photo of the 4 of us sisters a year ago at another birthday celebration. Kathy, Lana, Vera and Ellen. We also have 4 brothers.
VERA! I hope your day is filled with love, joy and happiness. Looking forward to celebrate with you soon. Praying for God’s continued blessings in your life…
Photobucket is holding all my photos I stored with them from 2007-2015 hostage. They have blacked out all those photos on my blog posts. OH BOTHER! I’m slowly cleaning up my posts.

I just found your blog. I really like it.
I had a great uncle who had a Feb. 29 birthday and a good friend that has one as well.
Happy b-day to Vera!! BTW, I had to smile at your comments regarding the white or black patent leather shoes–that’s EXACTLY how I could tell the seasons years ago! 🙂

Lovely family photos. It seems so many US photos in the old days were taken standing in front of a car.
Lovely sunset over Camarillo.
