Papa Lee and the Grandgirls at the Zoo -- Post 615 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 from June 1979, several months after Edna (Schaffner) Leland (Linda's mother, our daughters' grandmother) died in San Francisco.  Papa Lee visited San Diego, probably with Linda's brother, Paul, and we all went to the San Diego Zoo.  This photograph was taken in front of the flamingo exhibit near the zoo entrance.  Daughter Tami (age 2+), "Papa Lee" Leland (age 68), and daughter Lori (age 5) are pictured.

These photos were scanned from photographs created from developed film prints 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.

Watching the old photos is so much heartwarming especially when we see the people in the pictures who are not around us now and you remember them when you are looking at them it's like there is a space created which you can feel. I miss my Dad the most he was such a nice man. He has purchased bitcoin exchange platform software and now I am using the same ideas and adding them up in his investment.
