The Deen is flying in tonight with her fiance Mike. They're landing at 11 from LA, getting out to the homestead at midnite. The Boy, Thomas Charles, will be picking them up and bringing them out. Great to have the family together for Christmas.
Of course, I miss my mom and dad and grandparents at this time of year. Here's another photo from the Tap Lou Duncan Weir collection of my mother Bobbie. Photo is from about 1940.
What's funny about this pic is that my daughter Deena got my mother's dimples and in this pic they resemble each other more than I realized.
And speaking of family, Charles Richard Waters turned 64 yesterday. He and I go back to third grade at Manzanita Grade School in Kingman. Here we are in a fifth grade class photo on the front steps of Manzanita.
And, I mentioned I have long used my kids as models. Here's proof, from a layout I did for New Times in the early eighties. That's Deena at bottom (the top image was taken from a Carson Mell photo).
