father-in-law of my dreams.

    upon asking if it was ok to post this and who i could credit for the photos this is the response i got: (truly a fascinating story):

    Of course it's OK. The first was taken about 1961 (I was born in 1944),
    and the second one was taken in 2004 when Kathy and I went to visit
    brothers in FLA. I think my father took the first picture with an old
    Polaroid instant (they were just coming out then). The second one was
    taken by Kathy with my Canon Powershot S30 (3 Megapixel) The
    INTERESTING thing about the pictures is, even though they were taken at
    the same table in the same room (kitchen) of the same house, the house
    was about 10 miles away from where it was in the first picture! The
    family that bought the house from my parents loved it so much that when
    Wal-Mart moved in to buy up the place, he went to the trouble and
    expense of moving the house farther out into the country, and that's
    where we were in the second picture.

    Let me know if you need anything else from the museum...
