Holidays on Facebook give us all a chance to share family photos and honor those that came before.  This one posted on Veteran’s Day of college friend Malcolm B. Smith’s grandparents, Katie Elizabeth and John Calvin Smith caught my eye.12241248_10206232240939563_3769703832513478571_n-2_edited-1

Daddy was a good looking man and a great catch. He had a great laugh and beautiful sense of humor. Below, Daddy before a grenade robbed him of his eyesight and happiness. He married once more, fathered another daughter. My sister Diane and I both gave him grandchildren, but he only lived to know my son. However from his bloodline, he now has grands and great grands. RIP daddy.  Jerlean Noble

A Salute To The Veterans And My Dad.

Repost from last year.

Here’s a salute to all the Veterans today and my cool dad who covered 4 presidential conferences as a correspondent for Stars and Stripes during WWII – Casablanca, Cairo, Tehran, Yalta, and Bitter Lakes.  The photo below was taken sometime in the 1980’s. See more of his photos and read about him from an earlier post here.

With some time to spare, on a recent morning this week I found myself at The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s gift shop when fashion legend and designer Mary McFadden walked in. I’m so regretting putting off upgrading my iPhone after she graciously allowed me to take a couple pictures that unfortunately came out blurry. I love that she had her little met sticker on. IMG_1724 copyIMG_1719IMG_1727
