Linda and Lori on the Grass in 1975 -- Post 639 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 of my wife Linda and our oldest daughter, Lori, taken in May 1975 around the time of her first birthday.  She was learning to walk and Linda is holding her hand.  The setting is someone's back yard, I think.  I don't think it is the back yard of our home in Chula Vista.  We had those flowers in the back yard, but I don't recognize the tree, and there was a wall where we had the flowers, plus we had green grass the first years we were in the house.

After some thought, and looking around the back yard, I think that the white wall is the west-facing wall of our house below the window for the genea-cave (the one with pink blinds).  We had those purple flowers in the bed in front of the wall, real grass, and a succulent plant on the left next to the chimney.

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.
