This week, a few more random images from my collection of family photos. Most of these date to the early 1980s, although I believe the black and white Polaroid shot of my dad (below) is from the late 1960s or early 1970s.
Two slightly interesting things about the photo below — Mom’s tee shirt reads, “London, Paris, Rome, Leavenworth.” And if you notice a big orange thing in the background by my head, that’s actually a rooster piñata hanging from the ceiling. The body was formed by a big pottery jar, and let me tell you, that thing was heavy. I’m not sure whatever happened to that rooster. Mom, any ideas?? (Not that I would want the silly thing.)
I still have a few miscellaneous family pictures, but next week I’ll focus on memories of some of the many wonderful animal friends we’ve known over the years.
