I’m trying out the scanner on my new printer and that means you get to see a photo of my family from the 70’s. There’s no date on this photo but based on what we are wearing I’m guessing that it was taken in the spring of 1976.
UPDATE – When I posted this last night I referred to the person holding me as “unidentified relative who I appear to be unhappy with”. My mother just emailed me to tell me that the person holding me is none other than her father. Since this was one of the last times I saw him I’m not surprised that I could not tell who it was when I posted it.
The photo below was taken about a year and a half after the one above, in late 1977. This photo was taken during the little remembered period of the late 70’s when color film was outlawed. Luckily this ban was lifted just in time for my sister’s birth a few months later.
