Happy New Year card

    Photo and comments by my mother
    Joey was 11 months old on Christmas 1954 and took his first steps at 10 months and two weeks. (You can bet it's recorded on film.) So this feat of standing up for the camera was nothin'. Excuse our un-artful, homemade top hat. We mailed the cards between Christmas and New Year's.

    MsBlueSky, 黃線, Sacheverelle, and 2 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Ah... so the sartorial elegance is nothing new then :)

      We're near-exact contemporaries. I'm an August '53 baby.

      Mox: Yes, only the finest diapers for this lad.

      Bob: I will continue you to regard you as a wise elder then ;-)

      You look like Babe-raham Lincoln. This would have also worked well for President's Day.
