My father was in his thirties at the time.

That decade of life seemed old to me once.  Aging has a way of changing one’s perspective regarding such matters.

These are photographs of the dining room at the old family house in better days.  The table is no more, for example.  But it was a nice piece of furniture.

The photographs were undated, but I estimate them to be of Christmas 1976–certainly no later than that.
