Mama Lee and Tami at Christmas 1976 -- Post 602 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

I  can't help it, I can't do a wordless post!  I found some more family photos hiding in Linda's family photo boxes.  This is one of my favorite photographs:

This photograph is probably from Christmas 1976 (it is probably 1976 because Tami looks like she is about 2 months old) when we visited San Francisco.  Linda's parents lived at 1726 47th Avenue in the Sunset district, with the living area on the second floor, hence the nice windows facing the street.

That is Linda's mother, Edna (Schaffner) "Mama Lee" Leland (1913-1979) holding her granddaughter (our daughter) Tami Joy, with Papa Lee on the left side of the photo.  We don't have many photos of Mama Lee, and I'm glad that we have what we have.  

These photos were digitized from photographs created from film and are not particularly sharp, but they are what we have!

Several times a year when our children were growing up, Linda sent photographs to her parents and brother in San Francisco.  When her father died in 2002, her brother sorted out the photos and gave Linda the ones that were of our family and the ones interacting with them.  They were given to us in a big box of stuff back in 2006, and we finally looked at them last year!  I've started digitizing them for use in these Wordless Wednesday posts.
