Memory Monday slides redux, Week 34

Emerald Bay, Lake Tahoe

This week’s slides are a somewhat hodge-podge collection from late 1971 and early 1972, all stamped with the same processing date of June 1972. I don’t know the dates they were actually shot, but I’ve mostly tried to arrange them in order according to the small numbers printed on the slide frames.

Visiting with Dad’s dad in San Pablo, California

Christmas at home with Mom’s dad, 1971; he’s looking at our most recent school photos

I have no idea what my gift was in this photo — maybe a nightgown? However, noticing the library book in the foreground made me curious. The book is The Threatening Fog, by Leon Ware, published in 1962, and was apparently a Junior Literary Guild Selection. I decided to add it to my current bookshelf, and I’m now the proud owner of a copy that once belonged to the Lee Library Association in Massachusetts!

Here, I’ve just pulled a stuffed Winnie the Pooh bear out of the cardboard box. You might also notice our Three Wise Men hanging on the wall; they were made from a few different kinds of dried pasta covered in gold spray paint.

Another visit to Grandpa’s house

I’m tacking on one extra image — this one is date stamped 1975 and shows the harbor in Fort Bragg, California.

Next week, I’ll be starting on a big bunch of slides from May 1976, when my parents traveled to central Washington State. I can hardly wait to get started!
