Sincerely 'Fro Me to You: "Two Jerrys"





One of these pictures is of a little boy named Jerry. The other is a little girl named Jerri. Which is which?

Believe it or not, the picture on top is of my dad. The year was probably 1936 or maybe '37. What was Grandma thinking? It's one thing to dress him in a sissy top like that, but why the topknot? Looks like Dad was way overdue on his first haircut. Wasn't he precious?

The biker babe on the bottom is me, Jerri. It bothers me that he looks more feminine in his photo than I do!

I hate to agree with you on this one but, yeah, that was a way sissy top for a boy. I was wrong when I guessed.

I went with the wrong selection first, but then, before I read the rest of the post I changed my mind...something in the faces. But you are totally right, what's up with the top notch?

Mercy, that top on he-Jerry is very interesting. Perhaps the tube socks was the clue to the boy photo.

And the bottom photo definitely looks like a girl baby! Cute!

LOL, I was lead astray by the "halter top..."

Hey Jerri! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I LOVED the pictures you posted of the two Jerry's. That is too funny. Your dad DOES look way more like a girl than you do! I also often wonder what people were thinking when they dressed little kids like they did back in the day. I have wondered what MY mom was thinking many times! Thanks again for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon!

Hey Jerri, I found you through Dust Bunny Central- My name is Jerri Too and I was named after my dad Jerry. Do you happened to be married to a Terry? Life is exciting at our family get togethers. We have to use middle names when called. I love looking at "fro me to you". I will check you out next week too.

Tammy said...

YEAH! I picked the right picture! I had a hard time believing one of those was a boy! Yikes on how your poor dad was dressed!

Vered said...

So, was she secretly yearning for a girl? ;)

TJ said...

Yay, I guessed right! Your dad had strong features at such a young age.

Cute photo of you!
