img927 last of birch trees 1956Bob has told stories before about how miserable it was to rake the leaves.  This slide is labeled “Last of our birch trees 1956”

If you click here, you can see Mom sweeping up, with a very skinny birch tree.

img919 Henry Johanns img920 Grace Johanns photo class 1958Henry and Grace Johanns, from next door to Don and Reba.  They were on the other side of Visser’s lot/garden.

These are from a photography class that Grandpa took in 1958.  Bob’s comment in the previous post about Henry’s passing reminded me that I’d seen these photos.

These are the last two slides in Grandpa’s collection of over 2000 slides.  Not sure why he stopped then.

img915 salton sea march 64bHelen, Clark and Reba on the beach of the Salton Sea in Southern California.  It’s 1964.

This is another one of those seemingly ordinary photos that is actually quite wonderful.  Nice lighting, a little desolation, and ignoring the camera!  Click on the image for a larger view.

I checked to make sure, it’s a Sunday!  Mark and I must have changed our clothes as soon as we got home from church.  Zoom in and it looks like we’re wearing desert boots.

Grandpa Campbell took the picture, they must have been returning from their annual trip to Southern California and Baja.  This is taken in Grants Pass, in our front yard
