birthday greetings -- ii
My mother thought you might like this birthday photograph.
She has a far better photographic archive of my younger years. This gem comes from one of her albums.
We were living in Eugene when my birthday rolled around. So, there I am. About to blow out the four big candles on my cake.
My brother, Darrel, is trying to help me with my birthday task. And, I am resisting his assistance. I like to think I would be a bit more gracious these days. After all,I might need help to blow out my current forest of candles.
The gentleman to my left is my maternal grandfather -- Daniel Bruce Munro. I am not certain I ever saw him dressed in anything other than a coat and tie. Even when he was working in the garden.
Thanks for the photograph, Mom. In fact, thanks for the gift of life. I hope I have put it to good use.
