Several years ago I was at the mall, in a gift shop, looking for a birthday card, and I came across this card with three little girls pictured on the front. The title of it was "Friends"., the inside being blank. Cute, right.? Well it took my breath away, because that is me on the left along with my two older sisters. I don't mean these three girls look kind of like the three of us. I mean it IS us. This can't be? I bought the card....and later discovered this image was being sold everywhere. There were even large prints that were framed for hanging. My husband said it was just a freaky resemblance to the three of us. Not so, I have a memory of this picture being taken. It was when we lived in a small town in south Texas. I even remember that wall. My older sister had tried to balance on it, falling and cutting her leg.
Mother was no longer around to confirm all of this ...and my sisters memories are not as clear as mine. I actually remember the man, with the big camera, asking Mother if he could take some pictures of us.
I tried to track down the photographer and was told the print was from France. I am not trying to collect royalties...I just want a confirmation. Both of my sisters bought the larger framed prints and they hang in their homes. An uncle was visiting one of them and asked...."what year was that taken?". To which my sister answered" it's not us". I guess I will never get to the bottom of this....I've even thought of looking for the wall.....any suggestions?
