Here is a picture taken 50 years ago of Elaine and Carolyn while out sight seeing on a Sunday afternoon in the Washington, D.C. area. We had probably gone to Church, had lunch at Roy Rogers and were out enjoying the sights of the City. Of particular note is the way Elaine is dressed for sight seeing; dark blue suit, high heels, matching purse and dark gloves. Times have changed and in many ways "for the better" but most changes are more difficult to make as you grow older. Dressing more informally is one of the exceptions. While I accepted wearing a suit and tie for many years as the normal, I can now even attend Church services in the summer time with a short sleeved shirt and no coat. I must admit to a bit of shock the first time I was served communion by a young man wearing shorts and sneakers but it didn't seem to effect the sacraments. I have heard it said that, "the only constant is change" whether we want it or not.
