Holy Cow! What fun!

I love posting old photos and found another excuse tonight. These are my two cute Cubby fans from many years ago. Today, while going through some things that belonged to my Dad, I ran across this picture and it brought back some great memories.

I used to be a big Cubs fan along with most of my first hubby's family. It was great fun going to several games each summer. Now don't get me wrong, I would still love for the Cubs to win it all some year. It's just that my second hubby is a Sox fan so now my loyalty is divided or maybe I should say multiplied.

At any rate, this is a photo of 1st hubby's brother and his family at a Cubs game twenty plus years ago. We had some good times going to games with their family.

We cheered for these guys--I think this is Sutcliffe and Sandberg.

Tonight, I had the special opportunity to reminisce a little bit with Hubby Dale's two brothers and SIL, D'Ann. The couple in green and white shirts are the same couple in the Cub's shirts in the above photo.

Yes, we ate at Harry Caray's in Chicago.

D'Ann and I just had to snap a few photos.

Afterwards we walked around on a cool but lovely evening in the theater district and stopped for a few minutes to see Channel 7 News center.

It might be, it could be.... it was! A home run!

Oh Brenda, you are a good wife, so loyal.....me I'm a stubborn Yankee fan and always have been.
Loved your photos and to see the difference over the years is wonderful, as much as things seem to change some just remain the same. Great post my friend...:-) hugs

Brenda...I love looking at old photographs....looking at how things have changed...styles of clothing, hair, transportation...and I love to see how things are the same: smiles, fun-fulled times. This is a wonderful post!
(I don't follow baseball at all...I couldn't tell a Cub from a Yankee....but...sssh...don't tell. Some people may stop following me....seeing how deprived I am of this particular sport!)
Smiles to you from Jackie

As you probably know, I'm still a cubs fan; but I still think I shouldn't watch them on TV--I think I jinx them! Wow! Talk about having an inflated view of yourself!!
Loved the old pics! Donna
