Now we’ve hit 1960 and it looks like we had a few new family excursions and memories.
Now this is a sweet photo of me with my dad. Wonder what I was dressed up for – and I still have those black patent leather shoes.
Dad and #2 Daughter
Oh look at this cute family photo – Dad even displayed his SF Giants ball cap! Looks like I had a new hairdo to show off – sure wish someone hadn’t whacked off my bangs.
And just the girls. I don’t look too amused in this photo.
Camile is a striking woman but I wish I knew who she was.
Camille & Deb
And some more posing, here with our Grandpa Sig.
And here’s my mom and Uncle Rob, Dad’s brother. Mom was a looker!
Uncle Rob on his 1960 visit
I think some of the most fun going through this album has been the captions Dad added. Some were pretty clever!
And for those who have stayed with me while I documented this album – check out the white bench my sister is sitting on.
Apparently my oldest cousin, Vicki, came for a visit in 1960 with her dad. What’s up with the lei, Vicki?

A little out of order but now we’re back to Fresno. I’m not sure why a few of these photos are in color – maybe Dad was experimenting with a new camera. I don’t remember ever seeing this beautiful magnolia tree – I wonder if it is still there today.
The last two photos show us in dance costumes. I remember we loved to put on shows, plays, and dances so I’m guessing we’d been rehearsing for some big extravaganza. Dad captioned these More Grins.
Geez, Debi, open your eyes!
Vicki was really playing the part – check out the candy cigarette in her hand. I remember they had red coloring on the end so it looked like it was lit.
Boy wouldn’t I love to have a home movie of the performance we put on – I’ll bet it was a doozy!
