This was actually my Grandmother Leona's 81st birthday, but since I have a birthday on November 3rd and my sister Michelle's is at the end of October and my Brother Scott's is near the end of November we would usually celebrate them together. It was my 6th birthday.
This was Thanksgiving the same year and Scott's 18th birthday.
Im not sure, but from the chairs this looks like Camlu in Couer d' Alene, Idaho the first retirment home that Leona lived in. John Dewey must have be visiting since he had been in a nursing home after the fall that spurred my Mom to move him from Spokane, Washington to be closer to her. So that she could keep an eye on them.
This is a picture of the front yard of the house that I grew up in. I think that my Dad Zenas , Michelle my sister, myself and a neibor girl are in the picture. The Plovonics were our neigbors and the older kids were always nice to me. I believe that their Father was a butcher for a grosery store and acidentally chopped a finger off.
This was one of my first of many dogs. I named him Copper since The Fox and the Hound have just come out and the main Dogs name was Copper.
