Moving Right Along

Christmas cards; How we see ourselves. I find that fascinating. Top Pretty good with youngest daughter, 1981; Bottom Left: Card 1, Alienation in 1980. Bottom Right: Not a happy bunch in 1983.

Duck: He didn’t get any of our carefully left messages and was very upset we weren’t there yesterday. He doesn’t like his new roommate.
