MEMORIAS DIARIAS DE ESPAÑA

EVERYDAY MEMORIES OF SPAIN

 

             While reading The Right Stuff by Tom Wolfe, I laughed out loud at his description of the typical Air Force home in the 1950's and 60's.  InArmoire2.jpg (31791 bytes) one passage he mentioned that anyone who had been stationed in Spain in the '50s and '60s had acquired a "...great, towering, dark, grinning armoire capable of bringing conversation in the room to a halt."  He went on to describe the other furnishings stating that anyone who had been stationed in the Philippines had acquired "...the obligatory Monkeypod Tree coffee table."  Looking around my folk's house, I have to admit he was right about our proclivity to pick up eclectic furnishings and other objects d'art that would immediately tell anyone where we had been stationed.

 

 

           Remembering Spain, our everyday surroundings, and the other small things that evoke memories of that wonderful time in our lives, I thought it would be a kick to post a page displaying pictures of scenes and objects that were a part of our everyday lives.  Anyone who has any memorabilia from our years en Espana is encouraged to send images of them for posting here.  For example, if anyone has a "No Funciona" (sp?) sign, please email an image.  Below are some of the things I've found in our trunks and elsewhere that might be fun to see.  Let's expand the online collection:

Even those of us who didn't know much about bullfighting knew about Manoleté.
