Gabriel_06 Gabriel_01
Me and my older brother Guillermo, circa 1973 (Necochea, Argentina)
I know, the matching outfits... Come on!!! It was the seventies!!!

Oh, I just realized I mentioned this mustard coloured bike in one of my stories!

  1. Looks like the two of you had a lot of fun on your bikes! Is that a guitar you’re holding in the second photo?

  2. Hi Gabriel. These are delightful. And as another child of the 1970s, I hear you re. the fashion thing. I still cringe, though, when I see old photos of myself. What were my parents thinking?

    :)

    My WW entry is up here:
    http://writteninc.blogspot.com/2008/02/wordless-wednesday-owls-stare.html

    Hope you can drop by and say hi!

    All the best,

    Carmi

  3. Stephanie, yup, it's a guitar! My father played one, my brother does, and I do! It's a family thing...

    Thanks, Carmi, I have many more of those pictures with the matching outfits. I'm scanning some 200 slides I found! And there are that many from my wife too! Guess who will be the star of my next WW...

    I'm heading your way now!

    My mother used to make matching outfits for the two of us. Sometimes she made me matching outfits for me and my Barbies.

    Awesome vehicles!

  7. Hi Gabriel, my sister is only 16 months younger than me and she really hated those matching clothes. Everybody thought we were twins...

    Have a great WW!

  9. Talk about a time warp! Not only the outfits, but the machinery too. Man, what a difference a couple of decades makes.

    Evenso, both sets of kids are very cute, love the hair.

    Happy WW!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Jan, I asked my brother for permission; he posted a comment indicating that we looked like Moe from the Three Stooges (look for "Guillermo")...

    My brother asked me to pay him C$ 0.01 per comment, so I guess I owe him $0.60 now (which is about $120 American with the soaring loonie) :-)

  84. Oh, the seventies! Brings back memories.

  88. My brother and I have our own bikes and chase each other around town. One day, my dad gave me a new bike. Somebody stole it a few weeks after. I cried the entire day that day but I still got my old bike. The next morning is was back to the usual chasing my brother around town. :-) Happy WW! (belated)

    ReplyDelete
  89. Gabriel, the guitar in the photo is so small, I thought maybe it was something else, but I wasn't sure what. (Churango? Wrong shape. Ukulele? Probably not...) So I had to ask. It's neat that you come from a family of guitar players!

    P.S. Thanks for stopping by my blog. :)

  90. I love old school photographs, great job on your two here. I'll have to do that one WW here soon...just have to scan some great pics of my Brother and I back in the day.

  94. No exageres, Arturo! Por lo general, los miércoles paso holgadamente las 200 visitas y los comentarios son muchísimos, pero eso es más que nada por los post de Wordless Wednesday. Que son populares, no hay duda; pero yo también me tomé el trabajo de visitar muchos sites para hacerme conocido.

    Muchas veces había comentado que me desilusionaba un poco la falta de lectores frecuentes que hablasen inglés, así que me puse en campaña; me fue demasiado bien, porque ahora se me está yendo un poquito de las manos la cosa... Fijate que ya tengo más de 200 comentaristas distintos, y recién estamos a 21 de mes.

    Los dos premios que gané recientemente (el CDN blog award y el de BlogCatalog) me sumaron muchísimo tráfico diario (sobre todo el segundo, porque muchos lectores de Filipinas, Malasia, USA y otros lugares ahora me leen diariamente).

    Pero al mismo tiempo, muchos de los que antes comentaban ahora han 'desaparecido' un poco, como Ana, Xel-Ha, Guillermo, Alfonso y algunos otros. Evidentemente, no puedo conformar o gustarle a todos.

    Pero sí estoy feliz con el blog en estos días. Las historias y las fotos que escribo tienen buena aceptación y me hacen sentir muy bien los comentarios bien intencionados.
