I was blonde until about age 7, when my hair started to darken. I am scanning lots of old slides. My Facebook friends have already seen these!
I was thinking yesterday how it's unlikely anyone would want my big photo collection after I'm gone. I'm an only child and we have no kids, so where would the photos go? So I stick a few on my blog every now and then!
I like this one of me at age three. I look happy....
Me and Dad around 1969 (I was five.) I'm so glad that painting disappeared before I inherited it!
I've always had a thing for ducks. Is that white one on the left a Muscovy!?
And I find it interesting that my Mum gave me a knife and metal grater to play with. The house wasn't as filthy as this pic makes it look. The slide was faded and dirty. But there's no excuse for that wallpaper.
Me, my Dad and his mother (my Nanny) around 1969 at my Aunt's house. Dad was going through a chunky phase (for him.)
Napping with my beloved Nanny.
Reading in the garden with Mum in Agincourt (suburban Toronto) in 1970.
At the site of our first house that was built in a new subdivision in Peterborough in 1967.
At my going-away party just before we moved back to Toronto in 1970. Kids didn't wear sunscreen in those days!! My Mum made my sailor dress.
Me and my best friend Dougie in Peterborough in 1970. I've always loved the rain, and hanging around with boys. :)
