Round Two

As promised, this is "Round Two".  Basically I have taken some snapshots from another one my parents photo albums that fall in this category.  That category is pictures taken between when I was born in 1952 and late in 1966 when I started taking slides.

There is at least one more album that contains snapshots from this era.  There will be a Round Three.

My Grandpa Murphy holding me at 4 weeks old. The family story (told by my mother) is that at this time, Grandpa told my mom something like, "You can't treat Paul the same way you treat Buzz. He's more sensitive". It's not like mom and dad were rough with Buzz. Maybe Grandpa sensed something.
My mom holding me at 6 weeks old. This on the front porch of the house where I was born (well, after the hospital) in Seattle.
My Dad playing with me on the swing set in 1953. He stopped smoking in 1972.

Me and Pete in 1954.  Pete "ran away" a year or so later.  The truth I later found out, Pete was so protective of me he started biting people when they came near me.  So mom and dad had to give him away.
Next door neighbor friend Linda Shallow and me in 1955.
My cousins Gregg & Lorraine Bellows asleep on Easter Morning 1958.
May 1959. Mrs. Dorothy Ambrose was my teacher for kindergarten and first grade at Sacajawea Elementary School. At the end of the school year was "Grandparents Day. This is my Grandma Quesnell, me and Mrs. Ambrose. When I was senior in high school Mrs. Ambrose came there to teach English... but I wasn't in her class. But it was nice having her there.

The picture said 1960... I don't believe it. Anyway, this is my brother Buzz, Mom, Kathleen Motland, myself and Ralph Motland in Vancouver, BC. (My memory says we did this in 1962 during the Seattle World's Fair.)
1961 at the Troop 136 Scouts (Boy and Cub) picnic at Hamlin Park in Seattle. Here are 3 dads... Hal Todd, my Dad, and John Tomco.
1962 - me with the canoe on top of Dad's 1952 Lincoln. We were going on a ride down the slough before they dredged it out.
1962... I don't recall what the occasion was here. But all the neighbors frequently gathered at someone's house. Here we are at the Henderson's at 1538 NE 98 in Seattle. (I remember almost everyone's address because I was the paperboy.)
