May, 1976. Bicentennial baby!
My mother was the exact age in this photo that I am now. (63)
Quick, the photo albums with the sticky lines are ruining all the old photos!!
Young mother but oh, those glasses….
Aunt Bobbie needlepointed that patriotic bear.
Anyone else have a plaid Herculon couch?
And I will title this one Jubilant
It seems one minute you have a baby-`
and then they become grown up with a family of their own!!
(I never did embroider Fort Knox on this birth sampler I found, folded up in my dresser drawer recently) Forty years goes by fast!!
and there was the year I got you the gift you never got as a child
You may remember the “Dear Photograph ” post two Februarys ago.
My son Mark took this photo in my
living room where the red (faded to
Rose) couch sits.
My dad is holding him when the couch was in my parents’ living room in Philadelphia in 1976.
They are both so happy on this old photo.
Here is the series of “Dear Photographs” I experimented with a couple of years ago.
Love you, Ma
