POLAROIDS FOR POSTERITY


With Great-Grandma Beebe, January 1965


Is that a smile, Mom, or a grimace because carsick-baby is about to puke all over you? April 1965 during a roadtrip from Lake Tahoe to Reno, Nevada


July 1966, blocking the landing of the stairs at my grandparent's house for HOURS dressing and undressing that doll, but...what was I doing with that Q-tip??


That can't possibly be me. I was much more demure. Must be my sister. Yeah, that's it. July 1966 in my grandparent's backyard


2nd grade, 1970, Whiteman A.F.B. Elementary School, Missouri


August 1970, ...there's nothing on the back of this photo to indicate what the occasion was, but I'm guessing it was my birthday


No date on this one, but I remember it well. I deliberately POSED with the potted plant and tried to look serious. My mom hated this photo but it was my favorite for a long time.


First babysitting gig. I was 12, in 6th grade. We lived in Montgomery, Alabama that year, before we moved to Europe
