On the far left is my Gramma and on the far right is my Papa (my mom's parents) - other relatives from my Papa's side of the family in the pic too. This was taken in my Gigi & Uncle Carl's great room in their lovely, gracious home on the wonderful Potter Street in Eugene, Oregon. Everybody trying to look more formal and on their best behavior for the festive day....but, I love the little smirkey, sweet smile on my Papa's face.....he was always thinking up some little song or poem that was funny...he'd break into them at random times. Knowing that look....I know he had one ready to go when the photo shoot was done. :-)
Very tall tree cut on my Uncle's property about 30 miles up the McKenzie River outside of Eugene.
I can remember visiting the Potter Street house many times when I was a little girl and also spending good times at their place up river. I always loved the huge area rug that's in this pic....lots of time playing on it....my Aunt had several at their place up river too....I always loved them.
