  1. That girl She has a look I haven't seen in years. Great photo. They don't make them like that any more.

  2. The shades, the bangs, the flip, the polka dots, the mini! Missed it by a generation - would enjoy being part of a youthquake with enthusiasm.

  4. Speaking of Connecticut, can anyone recommend a restaurant in New Haven? We are going to be there for a few days next week for a wedding. My mom will be in town too and I'd like to take her to dinner. On a related note, is anyone familiar with the Lake Waramaug / Litchfield County / New Preston / Warren area? If so, is there anything to do there in the wintertime? My great-grandparents and grandparents both retired there, and I'd like to take our boys (13 and 15) to see the area, but it's been 20 years since I was there and don't know if there is anything to do during the winter months. It would be nice to go sledding or something if there is enough snow.

    1. New Haven recommendations to mull over: Park at York Street Garage. Easier than meters. Lots of restaurants from expensive to cheap with in a three block radius. Old Campus of Yale, Yale University Art Gallery, and The Yale Center for British Art are right there. They are free and fantastic. If your mother likes music, check the School of Music's concert schedule. Check sports schedule as well for the kids if they are in to sports. Many of the concerts are free as well. The Peabody Natural History museum is very cool, but farther north. State Park at Lake Waramaug doesn't open until May. New Preston and Warren are small town centers. The White Horse is good there. Perhaps Litchfield where the main street has more options? If you don't want to go as far north as Litchfield, I'd go to the George Washington Tavern in Washington. Kent also very picturesque and has some good places to eat. Doubt there will be enough snow for sledding. It's raining right now and everything has melted.... what melted was two inches of ice. Hope this helps.

  5. You can go sledding wherever you find a hill (there are plenty) if there is snow. X-C ski on golf courses. Check local boarding schools (plenty of those also) for public skating sessions. Downhill ski at Mohawk Mtn in Cornwall. It’s a very family friendly ski area (not a ski resort). No alcohol served. The classic 50’s architecture base lodge has the vibe of a junior high school cafeteria. Drive to Salisbury this weekend to see the Eastern States Ski-Jumping Championships. Drink hot chocolate. Get out there . Enjoy winter. What would summer be without it ?

  6. Tans deep enough to provide two generations of dermatologists ample work!

  7. The woman sitting next to the guy with sunglasses in the first picture is the Italian actress Sylva Koscina.
    Miss Koscina was in USA in 1957 for two American movies.
