Mom and Dad

I don't know the story behind this picture.

Is this before you were married or after?

How old are you? Who took it?

What did you do with that cool lamp shade?

Head the warning below.

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?
