1958 with Kirby Road School in the background. I believe the young man there is my
brother Bill. We used to play baseball in the field across the street by the school. (39K)

The family's first house,
on Candlelight Terrace in Western Hills. This slide was actually shot on moving day in
1972, when we moved out due to my job transfer with the EPA to North Carolina. It was a
sad day for the whole family. The blue Plymouth station wagen was the trustworthy
"Family Truckster" for many years. My sons Don and Joe can be seen in the
garage, riding their "Big Wheels" up the ramp into the truck. (45K)
