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
Went to a surprise 40th birthday party Saturday night. Half chocolate/half vanilla. Potomac Bakery made the cake. The icing edge was smiley face yellow. Her husband and sister pulled it off and I hope he takes my friend the birthday girl to the new restaurant Andora she thought she was going to try. I figured it out- I was a freshman in college when Erin was born! If you want to see what was happening in the world on her birthday, check out the Nov 16, 1970 issue of TIME.
