Early Years: 1953 - 1971

Yucky baby photos and all that rot

The Experience

Nothing makes a guy squirm faster than the thought of all those baby photos being brought out for public viewing. Well, let the squirming begin. My parents entrusted me with portions of the family album and requested that I scan them and put them online for their viewing. Here they are in all their geeky glory. The balance of the album is in San Diego and I will get to it when I travel there next. The photos below are slightly cleaned up with Photoshop to eliminate the result of more than 50 years in a drawer somewhere.

This was taken in 1953 or soon thereafter. The photo was likely taken at our home above the "shop" (the family business) on 4th Avenue in Tucson.

Year unknown, but I would have ben perhaps 2 or 3 so that would make it circa 1956.

Still in my cowboy phase. Actually, that phase continued until 1990 when I got divorced and sold the horses.

Location unknown, year unknown. This photo was quite damaged and it required a substantial amount of Photoshop work to repair to what you see here.

A school photo, but I don't know which one. I am guessing that this was in my early high school days, but I am not sure.

This photo was taken in 1970 while I was a cadet at New Mexico Military Institute in Roswell, NM.

I will add more dinosaur photos as I scan them. But as noted above, the album is not in my possession, so it will be some time before that happens. You can stop squirming now.
