1961. My mom at age 15. Packed for her first trip overseas.

Her little brother came down with chicken pox the day before her Mom and Dad were scheduled to leave for Switzerland, a trip her Dad earned by selling Maytag Washing Machines.

The plane ticket was given to her instead, back when you could just hand someone else your ticket. You can imagine how excited she was for the impromptu father-daughter trip.

And my Grandmother made every stitch of clothing she was wearing in the photo, including the overcoat.

And my Granddad always had the coolest cars. 1960 Ford Country Sedan! ~shared by @shawnmcarson
