here's an old picture i found...my mom, age 24, and my dad, age 28. the occasion: thanksgiving, 1971. the place: our tiny two-bedroom post world war-II brick house on east 256th street in euclid, ohio, 3 years before we moved to cleveland heights. i was still an only child, my sister heather was still 9 months into the future, and my sister hillary...almost four years away. the neighborhood may have been humble...mostly older, working-class slovenian folks, but my parents stood out as the youngest, most stylish couple on the street.
mom, you go with that outfit. dad, love the shirt and tie.
you both rocked then, and you both rock now. happy thanksgiving. i love you both.
