Saturday Photo Hunt --- Skinny





SKINNY

I used to be SKINNY, but no longer I'm afraid. In my better days, at five feet six and 110lbs. On my wedding day in London, almost 47 years ago. A print made from a slide and scanned, so pretty poor quality. Ah youth, gone but not forgotten!


However, I occasionally drink a SKINNY caffè latte, although mostly I drink rooibos or South African red tea, full of antioxidants so they say.



HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE

I also used to be skinny...lately though I have been suffering from a severe case of fat bastarditus. I hear it's curable though :)

Janice Thomson said...

Beautiful photo of your wedding day Jmb. I think there's very few of us stay that slim after 55 or 60. Great idea for the theme.

napaboaniya said...

Lynn said...

What a nice picture of your youth. Really beautiful.

eastcoastlife said...

Oooo....
*wolf whistle*

You look fabulous! No wonder someone said in your Facebook wall that you have broken a few hearts when you were younger. hehe....

Sarabeth said...

5 feet 6 and 110? Wow! I last weighed 110 when I was 12 or 13, and that is no lie.

Nice photos, JMB.

KISSEDALOTATOADS said...

What lovely memories of your wedding day! And definitely skinny back then. It still was a great photo. Have a good weekend.

Dreaming again said...

Beautiful picture!!

Artful Kisser said...

You looked resplendent. Love the fascinator veil.

Mar said...

That's a darling picture of you, I love it! Wonderful choice for the theme.
I love rooibos tea, too!
happy weekend :)

YTSL said...

Take it as a compliment: You weren't skinny. Slim, yes, but not skinny (nor just skin and bones)! :b

alpha said...

oh you were a pretty bride..

Hootin' Anni said...

Lovely bride photo. Your bride photo is MUCH prettier than mine I used today.

My skinny photo is published now, would you care to visit with me? I'd love to have you drop by!!

mistyeiz said...

Juliana RW said...

Heart of Rachel said...

Hi Jmb. Thanks for sharing that lovely photo of yours.

I'd like to try that skinny latte. Looks good.

Ian Lidster said...

Lovely wedding picture. You look ever so charming, and just a tiny bit apprehensive. But, since you've chalked up 47 years, you obviously needn't have been.

Dragonstar said...

That is such a beautiful photo of you - wonderful memories to treasure.

That latte is so decorative - how did you do that?

pelfy said...

WOW.. that's a pretty photo of you. (= Happy WW!

Political Umpire said...

Great picture JMB. I was much fitter at my wedding too, as it happens, and that was only six years ago!

I don't like skinny lattes. Reminds me of the time we bought "low fat cheese" for a laugh more than anything. Half an hour in the oven on top of a pizza didn't change it a bit - it was like tupperware!

On the drinking front, I've found another wine query which I've posted on just now, and obviously Anne JMB-Landers' views would be appreciated ...

Lone Grey Squirrel said...

A different time....a different place......you and me would be on a date, JMB! ;)

Liz said...

What a beautiful bride!

Two skinny lattes in a row I've seen after expecting lots and finding none!

2cents said...

Mine is up at 2Cents Worth and

Welshcakes Limoncello said...

Another lovely photo , jmb. I think you look just as good now! And you always have an original idea for the phot hunt.

Crushed by Ingsoc said...

You'd have been younger than me then. Is the slide painted?

the teach said...

jmb, second time I've heard the phrase "skinny latte." Must be because all I drink is a cup of coffee regular (milk and sugar). You looked pretty 47 years ago... :)

leslie said...

What a beautiful wedding photo. When I first saw it I thought you looked familiar so after reading through the comments, I went back and looked again. There is a resemblance to Geena Davis, the movie star.

Ah...to be slim again! For me, those days are past, too.

the teach said...

I read over that comment and I need to say - and I'm sure you're pretty now... :)

alisonwonderland said...

i love the photo of you! have a great weekend!

jmb said...

Thanks to everyone for visiting my photo hunt today. Have a great weekend

mommybytes.com said...

Beautiful photo, I've been seeing a lot of old photos for this hunt! Thanks for sharing and visiting.

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

You were a beautiful bride! :) Lovely photo. :)

SnoopyTheGoon said...

That's a beautiful photo of a beautiful bride. And re skinny milk - oh well, it's a thing I never understood with women ;-)

Have a great week!

SabineM said...

lovely wedding photo!
age has a tendency to add a few lbs!
I am also a coffee drinker. Love the latte shot!

PowersTwinB said...

What a beautiful wedding photo! I've never had a latte, so dont know what I am missing...lol...My hunt is on, come on over and drool!

Love Bears All Things said...

Personally, I think you were a little too thin!

JesieBlogJourney said...

Pretty and slender.

Mine is up late. Do visit when you have a chance.

Political Umpire said...

PS JMB couldn't resist adding a link to this post in my occasional elegantly dressed wednesday features ...

Chrysalis Angel said...

You look so beautiful in that photo, as I think you do today also. I just love the photos you are able to put up on your site. I really need to get over here more often and visit. Just wanted you to know I've stopped by.
