It is Christmas of ’68 and my brother, who is 13 months older is not happy. I speculate that he has to give me a present and this is not what he thought Christmas was all about. My dad seems to have quite a stern look in the photo too – I wonder what he is pondering. I appear completely pleased with the situation and to top it off my dress is quite stylish!
The stories in old photos are in the details that are not the focus — for example, I see a wagon, a flocked tree, and a monkey barrel on the couch. I loved playing with monkeys in a barrel! My kids (12 & 14) would have no idea what that was – I wonder what happened to that toy? What photo will you dig out of your shoebox today?
