Packing makes you nostalgic

A while ago I began scanning the family slides. Almost all of our family photos are slides and nobody likes to fuss with projectors and screens anymore, so turning them into electronic files solves lots of problems. In the process I’m getting to see many old photos I’d never seen before, including my parents in the 1950s, before us kids were born. Fifty years is long enough ago now that it seems “historical”, if that makes any sense, and it’s interesting to see your parents as part of history. Here are a few of my favorite photos:

How cool is this? Dad had a great 51 Chevy convertible, with a red interior no less.

    1. No way to know what the date was, but my parents lived in New Jersey and went into New York City often. From looking at the photo, it could very well have been spring.

  1. Love the shot of your parents in fab convertible! Great shot, what characters they were. Was born in spring ’57 too, Oriyo has something to do with Spring time in Japanese…
