The photo was taken 65/66 Dad was almost 24 and I was almost 18. George and Pearl were over to our house on Standish Avenue for New Years Eve. Pretty sure Pearl took the photo. Was it a poloroid photo? They had a poloroid and we thought it was pretty neat to see the photos in just a few minutes. Now instant digital blows that trick away! I don't remember who else was there that would have taken the photo. You were a brilliant child (in fact, I am surprised you don't remember that night vividly) but I don't think your motor skills were developed enough to use a camera at 5.5 months.Sorry the lamp is gone. I am sure it ended up in a garage sale for 50 cents. I'm pretty sure the lamp was part of a complete living room set that we bought for $99 - couch (that made a bed) chair, coffee table, 2 end tables and 2 of those exquisite lamps. Not bad for $99! Dad probably still has the receipt for it. We do still have one piece of the bedroom suit we bought then too. It is a small chest of drawers that has been painted several times. I think I'm ready to get rid of it. Any takers?
