I haven't done one of these for awhile. It's about time! Especially because I have been given possession of ALL of my mother's precious photos to scan and put on disks for Mom and my siblings. This is an awesome responsibility, not only to finish the job but not to lose the pictures either! I will be glad when it is done and they are back in my mother's hands! The wonderful thing about this project is that I get to see pictures I have not seen in years, and some that I have never seen. I am anxious to share them!
To start things off, how many of you have crept into your children's rooms while they were sleeping and snapped those precious shots of your angels? Even rascally kids look angelic when they are asleep! My mother is no exception to this practice. In these two photos we see my older siblings during a unique time in my family's life. They (because I had not been born yet) had moved from Mesa, AZ to Chaco, New Mexico. Dad was working for El Paso Natural Gas company. The plant was so far out from Farmington that they lived in company housing. As you can see, things were tight, space-wise! How many teen-aged girls would consent to share a room with two little brothers? Sharon was as sweet as they come and so were Dean and Richard. I am sure this arrangement was not without its' rough spots, but didn't it make for a fun picture?
Next week...get ready for a look back at the 1920's!
