Memory Monday, Week 52


Darryl at Royer Park, Roseville

Believe it or not, it’s been a full year since I began this series; you can find my first Memory Monday post here, sharing a family trip through Minnesota, South Dakota, and the Grand Tetons of Wyoming.

Just as I was beginning to run out of steam and thinking about retiring the series, my mom managed to dig up a bunch more slides, many of them dating back more than 60 years. She’s asked me to organize and share them, so I’m starting with the earliest ones, from the 1950s, and I’ll work my way forward from there to several boxes of images from Mexico (that’s right, the eventual return of Mexico Monday). Not all of these slides are labeled or even dated, and some of the images leave me with more questions than answers! But I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I am.
