J for Jan

I was given the letter J too play with I opened the dictionary and did see a few words that I would use like:Jazz,or Jewelery,Jacaranda,Jasmin,Jeans,joke but none of them rang the bell as much as my dad's name: Johanus Antonius or short: Jan



He was born in 1933 and he had 16 other brother and sisters. large family life in these day's


He was a fine young man here who loved ballroom dancing


He danced many nights away with my mum his favorite dance: the slow foxtrot



I came in there life as the fifth child the youngest of them all.

What a wonderful post Mona,You have such lovely parents and you were a gorgeous little girl - I'm sure you are just as beautiful now. Imagine having 17 children Holy moly - 4 was quite enough...Did you enjoy putting the post together?
It brings back a lot of memories and associated feelings doesn't it?

Thanks for a look into your past - it was a treat - we learn a lot from each other.

yes I have had a few moments that I thought:would like to sit next to my dad an sing along with him on the accordion we share a few very good memory's and till today I am still his little girl.

If there is one person in the world that could get a crown on its head for bravery it has to be him but, that is a other story.
I consider you to be very special Delwyn thank you for passing by again....

Oh what a beautiful post Mona.
Your Father and Mother are lovely and you are the prettiest little girl.
Isn't it funny - I am the youngest and my parents still think of me as their little girl.

I am glad that I choose the Letter J for you. It is neat to think back on all the happy times we had and remember special people in our lives. As you said without your Dad you would not be here.

Have a great week
Hugs
Carolyn
