Throwback Thursday - January 19, 2017

Throwback Thursday
January 19, 2017

It is May 1962, my mom and dad, Eileen and Pete Smith were visiting us in Winslow, Arizona. We had just arrived in January to start our Air Force life with Detachment 9, 11th Radar Bomb Scoring Squadron, Strategic Air Command, living on the civilian economy. Dad is holding our first daughter, Annette, of course. That is also my cool youngest brother, Paul. They are standing in front of the neat little cement block home we lived in while in Winslow in 1962 and 1963.

Dad would have been approaching his 47th birthday, Mom was 43 years old. Paul was 6. Annette would be 2 in August. Ah, what memories.  ;-)

Think positive, do good! ;-)


  1. What a great photo! I particularly like my bonnet and Paul's glasses. The house in the back is also interesting. I wonder if it's still there.

    1. Bonnet and glasses distinctive, for sure. The house we lived in was built as a rental on the back half of the lot. The owners lived in the house to left in the photo. They had a young son and daughter. Our house faced west on the street where I took the photo. Theirs faced to the north, on that street.
