A Seventies Moment in Time

You never know when or where a scene from your past might suddenly surface.  My cousin Darren scanned this ancient slide and posted it on Facebook.  It’s me and W,  my bearded biologist husband, married for about a year, living in Dryden, Ontario, probably taken at my Aunt Marguerite’s (Darrens grandma’s) house.  She was so incredibly good to us when we lived there in the early 1970’s.  We were both working, but young and stupid with our money.  Thank God she liked to invite us over occasionally and feed us.

Sorry I can’t remember why we were in a hallway, posing in front of the thermostat, and I have no idea what that silvery thing is on the wall behind us.  W is wearing his Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources uniform, jacket in hand.  I’m just standing around looking happy.  I think maybe I did a lot of that in those days.

  1. Linda. I think that particular piece of wall was the backdrop for a lot of Grandma’s picture taking as it was a good backdrop though someone was usually planned in front of the thermostat. I recall the shiny thing was a small poster of a bird that W brought home from the MNR for the kids and we probably insisted it looked good there!

    • Thank you Cheryle… I truly was wondering why we were banned to the hallway! lol How funny that you remember putting a poster there. This is why we need more than one head full of memories to get things straight.
