Project Throwback: 1960 Mom and one of her uncles circa 1960 per the back of the picture. She didn't have a real smile in a lot of her pictures, this is one of the few that it is a real squeal/laugh/smile I have seen her have.
PT: Porch Time
Project Throwback: 1955 My dad and his grandfather on his grandfather's porch sometime summer 1955. The puppy is named "Mucho" and is the first Mucho. Makes sense now why the black dog I owned at age 16 in Bellingham in 1987 was named Mucho as well.
PT: Mom and me (somewhere in there)
Project Throwback: April 11, 1971 Another picture of my mom. This time near the Seattle apartment that she and my dad had. With this being April, that would make her pregnant with me. I am somewhere in there about 3 months along.
PT: Groovy 60s before she was mom
Project Throwback: April 10, 1966 I realize I am late, the weekend was dedicated to the hubby! Here we have my mom on April 10, 1965, at the age of 16, according to the picture. Not sure who her friend or dog is, but I can tell you that is my mom because her hair … Continue reading PT: Groovy 60s before she was mom
PT: Sleeping Babies
Project Throwback: Late 1991/early 1992 Selena and myself, 1991/1992 These are two pictures from when I was about 20 years old. I was holding my ex-girlfriend's daughter that she had with another friend (yes, there is drama there along with fatherhood questions, but that is its own sets of writings). I think this was when … Continue reading PT: Sleeping Babies
PT: Family of Loggers
Project Throwback: Summer 1957 (?) One of the logging trucks I couldn't tell you if the year 1957 is correct, but I think it is for this picture of my dad and his Uncle Rush are in the picture. The family owned (maybe still owns?) a logging company up in Oso Washington. My dad was … Continue reading PT: Family of Loggers
PT: Chicken, it’s what is for dinner.
Project Throwback: Summer 1951 (?) Dad and his Grandma Clara cleaning chickens for dinner (1951) Another of my dad's childhood pictures, cleaned up easily enough, did crop out a lot of side image of the side of a building though. I do want to say that it wasn't me that cut off great grandmother Clara's … Continue reading PT: Chicken, it’s what is for dinner.
PT: Flat land, cows and my dad
Project Throwback: April 5, 1956 (?) One of my dad's childhood pictures. I believe this was taken in 1956 and was in North Dakota. Unfortunately he isn't around anymore so I can't confirm. I think 1956 because he mentioned some sort of trip back to Philadelphia that year (a driving trip). Unfortunately no real memories … Continue reading PT: Flat land, cows and my dad
PT: Wrapping up my CPA Firm career
Project Throwback: April 4, 2008 By the beginning of April I was closing in on wrapping up my first CPA Firm tax season. I hated the 110 hour weeks, I had taken a job with the state. Unfortunately the pace at the CPA firm had caught up with me. You will notice in my picture … Continue reading PT: Wrapping up my CPA Firm career
PT: Two Parents and a Grandparent
Project Throwback: April 3, 1973 Two parents and a grandparent Here you get to see my parents John and Mary, at the ripe old age of 25 and 24 respectively, along with my grandfather Laughlin. Yes he was the one I was named after when I was born (pretransition), yes my name at one time … Continue reading PT: Two Parents and a Grandparent
