Teresa and I took part in an Advent Study at church on the 4 Tuesdays of Advent.
At the end of one of the studies, the one that Teresa skipped, George Eckstein came across the room and sat on my couch. He handed me a bag and said that he had a gift more me and Teresa.
I thought this was a little bit strange, but I opened the bag up. What was inside was a very pleasant surprise.
George had come across and old postcard that my dad had made for my dad’s postcard company, “Slice of Life”. He scanned and printed a couple copies and framed them. It was an awesome present.
I thought I would celebrate my Mom’s birthday by posting some pictures of her from the 1970s.
I think that might be our old milk truck in the background!
With the best child.
With the middle child.
Out at McHose Park.
Out at the old house on W. 15th Street.
Doing something to a bird.
On a tractor.
On W. 15th Street.
Swanky lawn ornaments, At least I don’t think that is really Quakers.
With Grandma Bennett. Perhaps the only known picture in existence of Mom drinking.*
Christmas with Dad, Carla and Teresa
With the eldest child.
While I was going through this album I found a picture of our crazy old neighbor lady that wanted to push me down a well. I’ll have to post her picture in the future.
* I also considered: “I’m Teresa – Look at me! I have to force my way into the picture!”
