During 1961, it appears that Dad just took a few random photos. I know he took more (because he took photos constantly) but these are the only ones that seem to have made it into the photo album.

Nice hair, sis! At least your bangs have finally grown out!
Deb now collects stamps
After our parents had both died and we were cleaning out the house, the many books of stamps were still in the back store room where they’d resided, untouched, our entire lives. What to do with them? I know we could have done so many things but at that overwhelming time in our lives, it was just important to get rid of them. No, we didn’t throw them out but we did leave most of them with the estate liquidator and I don’t think any of us want to know what happened to them. But it’s nice to see this picture and remember the happy times of sitting with Dad putting our stamps in the appropriate books.

The Jacksons Visit
As I added this photo to the blog I began to wonder what happened to the family and started a quick search to see what I could find out. I knew that Joey had died years ago (20?) but never knew what happened with Bob. Sadly, I stumbled across Bob’s obituary and learned that he died at the age of 91 just over a year ago. But included was a beautiful photo with his ever-present smile! I’ve also sent an e-mail to Monterey Jazz Festival organization as I know that the oldest son has been involved with that organization for years. I hope he gets in touch with me.
Yikes, what’s going on here?
I think my parents still had that bed in my old bedroom when we cleaned out the house!
Fluffy still with us
This photo means a lot, even though I have no idea where it was taken.
That’s my mom with my sister and me. You may not be able to tell but knowing that this is 1961 and little brother was born in November, Mom must be pregnant. Debi, step aside just a little so we can get a better look at Mom’s tummy!
