|This is one of my most favourite photos ever posted by our friends at Shorpy.com .....The peace and serenety of the scene after a fresh snowfall reminded me of my childhood days.|
The following picture was posted once before but it is one of my favourite family photos ever. Who could ask for better times at about 15 years old(one year before I could drive). This of course is my family taken in December of 1959. My mother Noreen, not with us anymore, my little sister Daryle, my baby brother Corey, my Dad, Jon(yes..that is how it was spelled, and still doing well at 92 years) with his perpetual cigarette and of course myself with my white and red ski sweater on(if it was in colour). We were out getting our annual Christmas Tree, somewhere near Oliver Lake here in Fort William. I couldn't have asked for a better childhood than what I had....things were a bit tough at times, but I was truly a lucky kid. Click twice on both photos to enlarge.
Merry Christmas to all......D.
