My family
      Culbertson, Montana
      Summer, 1974

      I got back from my trip late last night, and today I’m sorting through almost 400 emails. It’s good to be home, though!

      One of the emails was from my cousin Heather, who recently found this wonderful photo of our family. Clockwise from the left, it shows my grandmother, my aunt Evelyn, my cousin Bill, my grandfather, and my aunt Gayle. My mother is seated on the floor, pregnant with me. It was the summer of 1974, and everyone looks so happy. Thank you, Heather, for sending this gem!


      My uncle’s dog in the background is the icing on the cake in this wonderful photo!

      How fun! If I was in college in the late 70s, I would have been a total disco queen.

      I don’t remember much of th 70s, but that’s probably a good thing.

      I love this pic of my mom! She looks so happy. I guess I wasn’t kicking too much that day.

      That’s my aunt and uncle’s St. Bernard, but I’m not sure what the dog’s name was. They have had several St. Bernards since then… such lovable doggies!

      I spy a happy dog in the doorway!

      Agreed! I love looking through my mom’s old photo albums from when she was in high school and college in the late 70s. All the photographs are square, and she and all her friends really embraced the 70s hair-dos 😀

      It’s always fun looking at old family photos.

      omg! the seventies! I remember the 70’s!

      and your mom looks the same! same great smile! wonderful!!!

      who’s the doggy in the doorway?
