I spent tonight going through some loose photos I got from my parents for the album. Some highlights:
My great-grandmothers on my dad's side (1969). I faintly remember them. Great-Grandmother I. (standing) used to let me sit by her at church. I loved to stroke her velvety soft, wrinkled hands.
This is my grandmother (Dad's mom) holding me when I was tee-niny. My dad was in Vietnam and my mother was living with my grandparents.
Here are my grandparents a couple of years later. That is my two-year-old head in the lower right corner.
Fast forward a few years-- this is my brother and me at my grandparents' house for Christmas. Can you believe all the stockings? My grandmother made one for every single member of the extended family.
California Singing School, which we attended every year. I think this picture was taken around 1976 or so. I am the one on the far right in the black-and-white checked micro-mini.
