Round Three

So here is Round Three.  When I thought I was done with Round 2, I found another album that had lots of pictures for this category.  That category is pictures taken between when I was born in 1952 and late in 1966 when I started taking slides.

As of today, January 28, 2010, I am not aware any more pictures that were taken between 1952 and 1966.  If I find more that should be up on the web site, they will be in Round 4 or beyond.

1956-09_JacquieMayHalToddXXXRichieYoung_1533.jpg
1956 at my 4-year old birthday party.  On the far left is Jacquie May and Hal Todd. I don't know the girl in pretty curls or the boy right next to her. That's me way in the back wearing suspenders. Both me and I think that's Lorraine have our backs to the camera.  The boy in the two-tone dark shirt is Richie Young.  The two are far right, I can't tell, but maybe it is Kevin Sullivan and the girl might be Dian Lockman.  The Spring Spaniel dog is Cocoa, the Lockman's dog from next door.
