I don't usually post things that are so personal. However, my friend, Bill (foreground, above) -- who is actually more like my little brother, sent me this picture. I hadn't seen it before, and thought it was sort of funny, that I decided to share it.
I figure the photo must have been taken in about 1967. My parents, along with Bill's parents, were heavily into camping (and would eventually build a houseboat together). What I love about this picture:
- My mother is, inexplicably, putting curlers in her hair. While camping.
- My father's portable liquor cabinet is on the picnic table. The ice bucket is nearby.
Clearly, they were "glamping," before that was a thing.
I met Mr. L at Trinity Lake, where this photo was taken. We actually watched the first moonwalk together, at the general store there.
Thank you, Bill, for sending this.
