Blackmail Photos


Aunt Bette is very straight-laced. She's a retired English teacher and Sunday school teacher, after all. 
She's a God-fearing woman who wouldn't say "shit" if she had a mouthful of it, 
and I've never known her to drink alcohol. 
She's an upstanding woman, a fantastic mother and grandmother, 
dedicated to her family and all things innocent...

....Which is why this photo, circa 1960(?) or so, of Bette
 the one and only time that anyone knows of her consuming alcohol to excess, is such a treasure. 

Doesn't she look adorable? 



Poor Bette; judging from the photo,
 this may be the reason she never drank again.haha


Yet another reason to get old slides converted into a 21st -medium.
Thanks, Memory Hub!


Disclosure: Memory Hub is a media conversion service that gave me 100 free photo slide conversions at the cost of 39 cents each, in exchange for my honestly posting about my experience. I paid for the remaining 347 slides to be converted to a digital CD, and am very happy with the results.

  4. Awwww, she looks so innocent. And very, very drunk. They did an awesome job restoring it, though. Very vivid!

  10. you are being to quick to judge here. I'm sure she was just admiring and studying the fine workmanship of the bar. She probably was very impressed with the fine bar cushion and how well it supported her head.

  13. LOL!! Yes, Aunt Bette got a chuckle out of my telling her I wanted to post the pic. Karen, she is actually a former SS teacher (and a retired high school english teacher, as well). Sadly, Bette still has Dial-Up, so she probably won't get to read your comments at home. On the bright side, I'll be seeing her in July, so I'll print these for her. Thanks for commenting :)
