A family gathering at the beach on the east coast. Guessing on the people
Three girls on the left are likely (in order of age)
The woman second from the right is Marilyn Rosenberg, my mouther's cousin. Maybe my cousin Mary Ann Leichter (not sure) in the middle. Don't know who is on the right.

A backyard parrty in 1968 in Connecticut. I think it's the Leichter home on Foote Street in Hamden. Whew, I don't recognize any of the people except my grandfather, Poppy, Irwin Baumann, in the center of the photo. Maybe my mom can recognize these folks

Kimmy across the street was Pam's childhood friend. Here Pam and Kimmy pose somewhere pretty. Kimmy was an only child and was doted on my her older parents. Pam got to go to a lot of nice places with that family. I don't know where Kimmy is today...

Picture of Nobuko and Sandy on front steps of the Willhagin home. I was a Candy Striper volunteer in high school. I used to volunteer as an aide at a home for retarded children. I used to care for some of the small children and sometimes the babies. I don't remember much about it except that it was hard work. I was determined to do it but I didn't particularly enjoy it or find it rewarding. Thikning back on those small children, even babies, I never remember seeing parents or family members. These kids were institutionalized. It was a rather new facility, pleasant, light and clean. But hard times and dark futures for those young people.
I'm all decked out with cap and gloves, I wonder if I'm going to some event?

I think we are at the Japanese Garden in San Francisco. I remember the blue pea coat though I think I lost it in some unfortunate way (again, the rage in 1967) We are wearing skits, hosiery and funny shoes. People would not dress like that now but, then, according to my mother...if you went to The City (San Francisco), you dressed up. Period. Maybe even with white gloves.

I don't remember this visit; why they visited Sacramento but that's the front of the Wilhaggin home.
Front Row: David G, Alan G. Carla G, PM
Back Row: Don, Mim, Charlie, Father, Sandy
All looking healthy and fit, so glad. My father passed away at the age of 80 last April. I've lost track of the Gittlesons. My mother thought they were living in Palm Springs. Two years ago, Dennis and I went there for a tournament and my mom strongly encouraged me to contact them, perhaps they would like to go to a game, they are always fun. I worked hard to find the number. Called and left a message. Called again and got Mim, she said she knew who I was but was distracted and could not talk right then. That was it; I figured they were 80 years old also and had other things on their mind. I did not try any more.
I have my hair going good again, how DID I do that? That kind of ribbed sweater top was called a poor boy sweater. All over the department stores in 1967.
My father always that hair cream sort of curl on the top of his hair, I thought it was permanently there, but clearly not.
My mother must have taken the picture.
