40 Years Ago

This picture was taken 40 years ago, in 1963 when I was 2 1/2 years old.  It was taken in my grandparents house.  I decided to include this picture because of the backstory associated with this house.  Built in the family by my grandparents, it was the house they lived in the remainder of their lives.  My parents then retired to this house.  This month this house and the property it sits on, and as a result my connections to that part of the country will be severed as my parents are selling the place in order to move into a town with better access to various necessities.

I will spend this Thanksgiving packing up the contents of this house, never again to experience a "trip to the country" and the roots that it has represented my entire life.

By the way the picture on the wall, in the hallway to the right is of my great grandparents and as of today still sits on that wall in the same place.  Soon to be forever relocated after 40+ years.  I think it will probably get scanned and relocated to this website as a part of the process.

As the internet will only become faster in time, the images here are in their native resolution.
